Sept. 18, 1932 — Oct. 6, 2012

Richard G Markland, aged 80, passed away surrounded by loved ones at home  in Fairfield on Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012.

Richard was born in Port Washington, New York, where he lived until he served in the U.S. Army from 1949-1952 during the Korean war. Upon return, he met and married the love of his life, Dottie, and they then moved to California where they raised their three children.

Richard was a member of Plumbers/Pipefitters Local 343 for many years. His dream and past time was his Butte County property where he built with his own two hands his cabin home, which unfortunately was consumed in 2008 in the Butte County fires. He then focused on his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren who were the light of his life.

Richard will be missed by all family and friends.

Richard was preceded in death by his wife, Dottie in 2007; and is survived by daughters, Robin Zimmer and husband Mark of American Canyon, Donna Espinoza and husband Frank of Suisun; son, Rick Markland and wife Dacia of Vacaville; brother, Alfred Markland and wife Dot of Florida; sister, Jane Nitto and husband, Dick of Pennsylvania; brother-in-law, Kenneth Bell and wife, Betty of Lemoore; grandchildren, Shane Merrill and wife Jasmin, Tyler Stein, Justin Markland and wife Crystal, Brianna Espinoza, Kayla Markland, Tawnya Zimmer, Ty Trimble, Joshua Markland, Jenna Markland; great-grandchildren, Deric Angeles-Espinoza, Dominic Angeles-Espinoza, Arianna Rose Markland; and very good friend like a son, Will Soares of Fairfield; many nieces and nephews and friends. We are all blessed to have had his jolly robust life in our lives and will miss him immensely.

Services will be held Saturday, Oct. 13, 2012, at 2 p.m. at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 2010 E. Tabor Ave., Fairfield.
