Suzanne and my Cheri Ellwood attended Valley Forge Christian College together. Jim drove them back to school this one time. They had a flat tire on the trip. Jim was so patient with these gals. While he changed the tire Sue was taking pictures. I chuckle when I think of this. I am so sorry for your loss Celeste. I’ve been there so I know the pain. Praying for you and your beautiful family.

So sad to hear about my Uncle Jim's passing. He was a kind hearted, soft spoken man and I have fond memories of childhood holiday visits with him, my aunt Celeste and cousins Sue, Marcy and Jamie. My sincere condolences to all of you. Best, Laura

My desk was next to Jim's at Fuligni-Fragola/Bonacci Architects. He had the greatest influence on me on how to present construction drawings to be organized, fluid and beautiful. His legacy to me continues to this day by filtering down to my younger associates.

We lost a great Architect this past Sunday morning, my dear brother Jim Markley. Poor Jim came down with Alzheimer a few years back that eventually took his life at age 86. Jim had a long professional work history at
Fuligni Fragola Architects and Bonacci Architects. Jim had the unique ability to keep working during power outages which were frequent at our Fly road office and produced beautiful hand-drawn details and sketches which is becoming a lost art after CAD took over. There was not a baseball player or player statistics he did not follow and some in our office would refer to Jim as The Dean. Those who remember Jim admired his gentleness and kindness and their love of cats.

In fond memory,
Brother Bob
