September 6, 1913 ~ October 22, 2011

Rueben A. Marti, 98, was born September 6, 1913, to Matt and Louise Marti in Arpin, Wisconsin, the second child in a family of nine children. He attended high school in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin.

In 1938 he married Evelyn Georgia Miller of Port Edwards, Wisconsin. They moved to Madison, Wisconsin, where their son, Gerry August, was born. Seven years later they adopted their daughter, Debrae Joyce.

Rueben attended a two-year short course in soil conversation at the University of Wisconsin. During the summer he worked at Rodent Control and Soil Conversation.

Moving his family across the country in 1951, Rueben joined Crown Zellerbach Paper Company, Camas, Washington, where he was in charge of Paper Research. During his tenure at Crown, he acquired several patents, some as individual, others as co-patent, and some were shared with others.

He retired at the age of 65 from Crown. However, he proceeded to be engaged in consulting services for several years with clients in the United States, Europe, and Japan.

Rueben is survived by his brother, Merlin Marti; sisters, Dorothy Serchen, Betty Szelatowski, Shirley Pavlik; his daughter-in-law, Eileen R. O'Neil; four grandchildren, Brad Marti, Terri Horton, Steve Marti, and Kristin Conradie; his great-grandchildren, Jeff Reams, Kodi and Jordan Marti, Tyler and Nikki Gachen, Kai and Keegan Conradie; his great-great-grandchildren, Oceanna and Laili Reams-Giovannone.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Evelyn; his son, Gerry; and his daughter, Debrae.

The funeral was held Friday, November 4, 2011 at St. Paul Lutheran Church, Vancouver, Washington with viewing prior to the service. Interment followed at Evergreen Memorial Gardens, next to his wife, Evelyn, and son, Gerry.
