Hello folks, it is with a heavy heart that I deliver this note to you from the members of Tresario Star Kingdom:

Steven Markowitz, 59, known in Darkness as Gravnkev Forestwanderer, suddenly and unexpectedly passed away on December 26, 2023. An active player since Y9, he held prominent roles in both the Anzatan Commonwealth and the Tresario Star Kingdom. As a long haul trucker always travelling with his Papillon Niki, he never let that stop him from being an active member in the TSK community, leading their Force group, the Tikiars. He will be sorely missed.

you can find a link to his obituary here:

Our thoughts and prayers go to Gravnkev's family and friends. And to Grav: thank you for everything you brought to this community.



EDIT: Some people outside the USA mentioned that the obit link didn't work, so here's the text below:


Steven Markowitz of Rocky Mount, VA died unexpectedly on December 26, 2023, after suffering a stroke.

Born in Putnam, CT on August 26, 1964, to Michael Markowitz and Kathleen Taylor Markowitz . He graduated from Putnam High in 1982. 

He worked for many years in the construction industry before becoming a long haul trucker. Thanks to technology, he kept his family and friends updated on his travels around the country. He was accompanied by his faithful companion Nikki, a papillon who also loved to travel. His final check-in was from Great Falls, MT.

He is survived by his mother, Kathleen Taylor of Rocky Mount, VA, siblings Elizabeth Buzalski of Putnam, CT Ginny Friedman of Brookline, MA, Patrick Markowitz of Rocky Mount, VA and James Markowitz, of PA, his dog, Nikki, extended family and many friends.

He was predeceased by his father, Michael Markowitz.

A celebration of life will be held in the spring.
