Philip Markley Obituary
PHILIP MATTHEW MARKLEY, 22 ROCKFORD - Philip Matthew Markley, 22, of Rockford, son of Dean and Sylvia Markley, fought muscular dystrophy achieving a life full of love and happiness. Philip was born Jan. 27, 1988. He left his physical embodiment Monday, Jan. 24, 2011. His family included brother, Ken Markley; sister, Michelle Markley; grandmothers, aunts, uncles, and countless number of relatives and friends, who love him dearly. His loving pets and companions include Molly, Punk'n, Frekkle, Honey, Luna and Heene. Phil had a love for sports. He appreciated every sport, but he had his favorites that included baseball, football, hockey and basketball. Philip was an artist, and a guru of love. He knew how to live, from where he was. From his bed he seemed like he had been everywhere because he had so much joy, love, and friends from the outside world, that being in one place didn't matter. His spirit is everywhere. Philip's visitation from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 29, with funeral at 3 p.m. at Fitzgerald Funeral Home and Crematory, Mulford Chapel, 1860 S. Mulford Road. Please come in your Bears/Bulls/Cubs/Blackhawks/Illinois gear, (if you don't have any of these just wear blue). Our goal is to "Phil" the house, so everyone come on out. There will be root beer and pretzels for all. In lieu of flowers, memorials to the family for a fund to be established at a later date. Extend online condolences at: www.Fitzgeraldfh.com.
