Marion Perkov

(May 24, 1946 - Aug. 12, 2021)


Marion Perkov passed away peacefully at home Aug. 12, surrounded by his wife and children. He came thundering into life on May 24, 1946, born to the late Ante and Mamie (Zankich) Perkov. His great loves in life were his wife Angie (with whom he spent 60 years), his children and grandchild­ren, the University of Southern California Trojans (‘71) and an inherited fondness for country music.

Marion is remembered for his dapper style as a restaurant owner and his unflinchin­g hospitalit­y. He served proudly as a U.S. Army Reservist.

He was predecease­d by his parents and brothers, Vincent and Tony, and so many friends. Marion will be missed by his wife Angie, his children Ante, Mia, Danielle, Todd and Stasha and his grandchild­ren Vaughn, Megan and Donny, along with his nieces and nephews who gave him great comfort.

Those who wish to remember Marion will be well served to enjoy a hot dog, a glass of single malt whiskey or watch The Quiet Man, starring John Wayne in Marion’s honor. Marion fought illness with the same vim and vigor that he has shown since childhood. Marion catered thousands of weddings and funerals during his career. He gets to sit this one out.
