So very sorry to hear about George's passing. He was an awesome man that I have known and respected for many years. I know his teaching years were very beneficial to many of his students. Michelle, I know you are devastated, but you are a very strong woman and will be able to get through this. Hang in there and I love you Michelle.

I am so saddened to hear of George's passing. Mr. Marker made me love history, so much so that I went on to study it in college. He had such an impact on me and I'm sure countless former students would say the same. My deepest condolences to his family.

Mr. Marker was one of my favorite teachers! He DID make me like history in high school. Years later at U of I, a bunch of us drank a beer with him at the Corner Club in Moscow. Treated me like his equal. Very cool guy.

George was a good friend throughout our grade and highschool years. We were dorm mates at Idaho and had a great time there. When he found out Doreen and I set a wedding date, he and another mate, Jerry went very late at night to the College Library and returned with a 6 foot padded bench as a wedding present. We used it and it traveled with it for over 20 years. Not till facebook did I reconnect with my ole friend and it was great sport to banter with him during the Trump years. His sarcasm and wit were second to none and was great fun to try and rattle him. I will dearly miss that and my dear friend. I felt blessed to be able to say goodbye to him. RIP. It was great.

George will always be remembered for his sense of humor, his Vandal loyalty, his love of teaching, and his devotion to family and Michelle. We had some good times pool side, some great times Vandal side, and always trying to outwit George. Let's lift a "bump" in memory of George!

Go Vandals go! It was a great earth-side journey George. You and Michelle and the tailgating, the stories of livin' nor' Idaho, our K-12 adventures in CdA, our UI Moscow schooling, our teaching and coaching and the Vandal sports seasons we all loved for its comradery. My prayers and thoughts to Michelle as George is now out of the physical plane and into the spiritual -- and back to HOME, with the Lord. No more pain, but now it's pure love, good health and lots of joy with loved ones. Michelle and you were the epitome of Warriors in the battle every day for the past two plus years. We will miss that stoic and dry humor, with that razor-sharp wit --- and, your always acts of kindness and help to those struggling. And, to Michelle. May you find comfort and peace during this difficult time and daily bask in those precious memories of George. Grant Joki, Boise
