Obituary of "Bud" Harold Markham

Passed away peacefully with his wife by his side on Wednesday October 31, 2018 at Peterborough Regional Health Centre. Bud was a lifelong Habs fan and loved playing hockey. He enjoyed most sports, especially fishing and hockey, also curling, and baseball. Bud always dreamed of owning a boat and the day the BLII was delivered is a wonderful memory, with many happy hours spent in the boat fishing as a family.

Bud was proud of his work at Great Lakes Forest Products and OMNR in Northwestern Ontario, then as Municipal Roads Superintendent and Manager of Public Works in Southern Ontario. He loved music, especially classic rock ‘n’ roll, Motown, soul and blues. Bud loved to laugh and make others laugh. Bud had a sharp sense of humour and always made events he attended fun, adding his own style of entertainment and wisdom. Bud will always be loved and remembered by his wife of 40 years Linda (nee Dolmage), his son Tyler, mother and father-in-law Ed & Jean Dolmage, brothers-in-law Rick Dolmage (Karen) and Bruce Dolmage (Tammy), and sister-in-law Anne Kelly (Francis). He will be missed by his nieces Melinda Patay, and Mallory Fraser, nephews Alan Charlton, Brian Bulley, Dean, Cole and Jackson Kelly, Phil, Brent, Kevin and Sam Dolmage, the extended Dolmage family and many close friends made throughout his working career all over Ontario. Tyler and Linda hope Bud has been reunited with their beloved family pets Ginger, Mukluk and Worf, whom he missed greatly. Bud is predeceased by his parents Pete and Eva, his sisters Hazel Charlton and Marilyn Bulley (Ted), and wonderful close family friend Megan Enders. Arrangements entrusted to THE HENDREN FUNERAL HOMES, LAKEFIELD CHAPEL. Cremation has taken place. At the family’s request, Bud will be laid to rest in one of his favourite places in the spring at a private gathering. In lieu of flowers, if desired, memorial donations may be made to the Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Association of Canada by visiting www.hendrenfuneralhome.com or by calling 705-652-3355. Bud was an avid outdoorsman and champion of individual rights, so as a fitting tribute to Bud, the family asks that you enjoy the outdoors and all that Ontario has to offer, and always remember to “drive your own truck.”
