Alton J. Marwitz



Alton J. Marwitz, age 77 of Marquette, passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 22, 2014 at home.

Alton was born on February 1, 1937 in the Township of Manchester to John "Jack" and Verna (nee Lohry) Marwitz.

On May 17, 1958, Alton was united in marriage to Donna Ebert at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Marquette, where he was a member. Alton was a hard-working, kind and generous man with a strong faith and belief in God. He had a very positive outlook on life and was often whistling or singing along to a tune.

Alton enjoyed camping, hunting, fishing, refinishing furniture, watching local high school sports, water skiing with the family on Lake Puckaway, cheering on the Packers and playing cards at Del and Karen's. He also enjoyed an occasional trip to the casino and visiting Aunt Doris on Beaver Dam Lake. Alton will be fondly loved and remembered by many.
