War hero's scars never held him back
Stanislaw MARKOWSKI was wounded and taken prisoner in the Second World War.
By Kathy RUMLESKI, Free Press Reporter, Mon., October 8, 2007
Sacrifice for the Allies in the infamous Operation Market Garden raid meant decorated paratrooper Stanislaw (Stanley) MARKOWSKI would spend the rest of his life in pain.
MARKOWSKI, 83, died in London's Parkwood Hospital September 25, almost 63 years to the day he was wounded by the Germans and taken prisoner for the rest of the Second World War.
A loving father and grandfather, he always took on renovation projects that made his family's life more comfortable, his daughter recalled.
"He learned the trades and he could fix anything. He built an apartment over (his) house," said Stella NICHOLSON of Oakville. She also recalled her father taking his grand_son to many sporting events.
In wartime 1944, Poland was under the Nazi jackboot but free Poles continued to fight.
MARKOWSKI was a member of the Polish 1st Independent Parachute Brigade, which joined the Allies in 1944 in the largest airborne operation in history.
Operation Market Garden involved thousands of Allied paratroopers and ground forces, the objective was to take a series of big bridges over the main rivers of German-occupied Holland, allowing the Allies to outflank the heavily fortified Germans.
The botched operation -- thousands were killed and thousands went missing in action -- inspired the 1977 Hollywood movie A Bridge Too Far, starring big-name actors Sean Connery, Michael Caine and Gene Hackman.
In reality, the failed mission meant the Dutch suffered through a "Hungerwinter," in which thousands more died.
NICHOLSON said her father, who came to Canada in 1947, struggled physically and emotionally after he was shot in both legs and captured. He had back pain from jumping out of airplanes with his brigade.
"Anybody living with the aftermath of that stuff, you have all kinds of problems. You dream about seeing your Friends blown up," she said.
MARKOWSKI also had poor circulation in his legs, which eventually led to vein surgery and amputation of one toes.
"He really had a hard go of it," NICHOLSON said.
MARKOWSKI, who worked at several factories, including General Motors, kept the four medals awarded him by the British and Polish governments in a bedroom drawer.
"We're proud of him, big-time," NICHOLSON said.
MARKOWSKI is also survived by his wife, Maria.

Gym shooting victim was 'targeted,' police say
By Geoff NIXON, Page A13
The execution-style slaying of a man outside a Richmond Hill fitness club yesterday is being investigated for possible links to organized crime, police say.
Jason PELLICORE, 34, was gunned down outside Complete Fitness, east of Yonge Street and north of Major Mackenzie Drive, shortly after 9 a.m.
A police source told The Globe and Mail yesterday that Mr. PELLICORE may have links to outlaw motorcycle gangs including the Bandidos - a small, U.S.-based, outlaw motorcycle club whose profile has shrunk in Canada following the sensational killing of eight members and associates last year.
Police say Mr. PELLICORE was stepping out of his vehicle to enter the gym when he was shot several times. He was taken by ambulance to York Central Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
Police say a man on a small motorcycle or motor scooter, who was wearing a shielded helmet, was seen in the parking lot prior to the shooting and is considered a person of interest.
John RUMNEY, 46, saw a man on a motorcycle drive up to the gym parking lot from the south side of the building around 9 a.m.
While he didn't hear the actual shots, Mr. RUMNEY said the incident "really freaked" him. "In broad daylight, in a parking lot," he said. "As bad as it gets."
Detective Sergeant John SHELDON of York Regional Police said that elements of the shooting - the timing, the location and the number of people involved - lead police to believe that Mr. PELLICORE was known to his killer.
"This was not a random shooting, he was targeted," he said.
Tony FARRAH, 55, was inside the fitness club when a woman came running into the building yesterday.
"The woman was distraught," Mr. FARRAH said. "A person from the front desk ran out [to the parking lot] with her."
When Mr. FARRAH went out to see what had happened, he immediately recognized Mr. PELLICORE, whom he knew as a regular fixture at the gym.
Relatives who answered the phone at Mr. PELLICORE's King City home yesterday said they had no comment.
Management at the fitness club did not return calls to reporters, but left an answering message for their clients that the facility will remain closed until tomorrow morning.
