Martin ‘Marty’ Lee Ferris Sr.

Martin Lee “Marty” Ferris Sr. passed away Feb. 24, 2006, in South Lake Tahoe. He was born Sept. 3, 1927, in Maywood, Calif., to Helen and Earl Ferris.

After serving his country in the Merchant Marines, Marty returned to Southern California, where he started a successful plumbing business. He and his wife, Linda, moved to South Lake Tahoe in 1980 and spent many years sharing their home with family and friends. They traveled around the country and took a special trip to Italy. Golf was one of Marty’s loves and he played all over. He also enjoyed the time he spent with his friends.

He is survived by his wife, Linda; sons, Marty Jr. (Celeste), David and Christopher; daughters, Loreal and Nicole (Rick); grandson, Shaun; granddaughters, Brittany and Brianna; and sister, Pat (Tom Anthony). He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Helen Schafer; and grandson, Tim.

Friends and family will hold a private memorial to celebrate Marty’s life in June.
