MARKOVICH, MICHAEL  
MICHAEL MARKOVICH Michael "Mickey" Markovich passed away May 6, 2015. Mickey was born July 11, 1946, in Wilkes Barre, Pa. Orphaned as a youth, he quickly learned about self-reliance and the value of "true" friends. Out of high school, Mickey served in the U.S. Army's 82nd Airborne Division. He returned home to marry his high school sweetheart, Carmela Drago, in 1969. Mickey worked as administrator of patient transport at Wilkes Barre Hospital for almost 18 years. He always kidded that they never lost a patient under his watch! He also attended night classes at West Side Vocational Tech and became a licensed electrician, a trade he continued to practice the rest of his life. Mickey loved to take spontaneous "road trips" around the country, visiting friends and relatives and attending various sporting events. Some of those trips were to Las Vegas, which led he and Carm moving to Las Vegas in the early 1990's. Mickey was preceded in death by his loving wife, Carmela, in 2001. He is survived by his brothers, Eddie and John; son, Michael Jr.; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Mickey loved people. He was ready at a moment's notice to help anyone, be it friend or stranger. He will be remembered fondly by family and friends he enjoyed throughout his lifetime. He will always have a place in our hearts. Final "roadtrip" send off will be 6-8 p.m. Friday, May 29, at Las Vegas Cremations, 5555 W. Charleston Blvd., Las Vegas, NV 89146.
