ROY BLAINE MARKHAM

VRWA Said "Goodbye" to Board
Member and Friend Roy Markham

went to be with
the Lord on Thursday, June 29, 2017
at Holston Valley Medical Center
in Kingsport, TN surrounded by his
beloved family.
Roy was employed as executive director of Castlewood Water
and Sewage Authority and served as
Region I Director for the Virginia Rural
Water Association.
Roy was the son of Helen Markham
and the late John Markham of Coeburn,
VA. He was preceded in death by
his grandparents, Grover Cleveland
Markham, Easter Nannie Flora
MaeBelle Markham, Hardaway Bennett
and Lillian Bennett.
Survivors include his wife of 18 years,
Susan Markham; son, Ryan Markham of
Wilder, KY; daughter, Allison Holmes
and husband, Kevin of Glade Spring, VA;
ROY MARKHAM, 56,

son, Roger Coomer and wife, Amber of
Roanoke, VA; sister, Mary Rash of Big
Stone Gap, VA; brother, Joel Markham
and wife Melissa of Coeburn, VA; six
grandchildren, Ashleigh Call and husband Nathaniel, Zachary Bird, Kaleb
Holmes, Ella Coomer, Noah Coomer
and Liam Coomer; one great-grandchild,
Rylan Call, and many special nieces
and nephews.
Roy was a loving husband, father,
grandfather, uncle, brother and friend.
He was an avid fisherman and outdoorsman. Roy always had an unselfish desire
to assist others in need and a willingness
to share his time and extensive knowledge. More individuals are needed in
this world who share the characteristics of selflessness and compassion to
family, friends and strangers as Roy
demonstrated throughout his life. "Do

not pass by a man in need, for you may
be the hand of God to him" (Proverbs
3:27). Roy, you will be thought about
and missed daily. We anticipate the
day we will reunite with you and our
heavenly Father.
The family would like to extend a
special thank you to the employees of
Castlewood Water and Sewage Authority
for their support and participation as pallbearers. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a memorial contribution to
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital at
https://www.stjude.org/give.html.
Roy had been involved with VRWA
for a number of years. He attended conferences and classes and was involved in
a number of committees. Roy became
a board member in 2012 as Region I
director. The membership, board and
staff will miss him.
