After his service, he worked at 3M for a couple years and then became a Turbine Operator for the City of New Ulm for 37 years before retiring in 2006. In his free time, Marty enjoyed being a member of Ducks Unlimited. He especially enjoyed hunting and fishing, which he was taught how to do by his father and Marty was able to pass down to his sons. Marty also had many memorable hunts with his Labrador Retrievers. When he was not hunting, he also enjoyed gardening and yardwork. But, above all else, Marty enjoyed the time he was able to spend with his children and grandchildren. He will be greatly missed by those who knew him, blessed be his memory. Memorials are requested to the Guiding Eyes for the Blind because of Marty’s love for Labrador Retrievers. Read More
