Obituaries » George W. Markland Jr.

George W. Markland Jr., 70, of The Plains, passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, Saturday, April 7, 2018, in Richmond.

A graduate of Fauquier High School, Mr. Markland spent the mid-1960s in the U.S. Army, stationed in Germany working on advanced missile guidance systems. In 1970, he was paralyzed in a car accident and underwent extensive rehabilitation to return to being able to do, in his words, “everything but walk.” After studying at Northern Virginia Community College, he moved to Colorado, where he worked customizing vehicles for disabled people and enjoyed hunting as often as possible, hobbies he’d continue to avidly pursue on his return to Virginia in 1982.

He was a tireless and devoted uncle to his one niece and three nephews, shuttling them to baseball practice and instrument recitals and never missing an important event. He also served a member and commander of the local American Legion chapter and as a proud member of Paralyzed Veterans of America, carrying out his lifelong mission to inspire and mentor paralyzed people as they recovered from their injuries and readjusted to life.
Mr. Markland will be remembered forever with the greatest love and esteem by his devoted sister, best friend and longtime caregiver Annette Storey; his nieces and nephews (honorary children) Scott (Lesley) Storey, Jay Storey, Jenny Russell and Jeff Storey, in addition to his beloved great-nephew, Finn Storey, and very likely everyone who ever had a chance to meet him and enjoy his kind, gentle, and humorous demeanor.

He was predeceased by his father, George W. Markland Sr., and his mother, Estelle Wade Markland, of The Plains.
A celebration of Mr. Markland’s life will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday, April 14, at Moser Funeral Home in Warrenton.

Per his wishes, a memorial GoFundMe campaign has been established for his devoted sister and longtime caregiver Annette at
