Marti J. Babler

Marti J. Babler, age 59, passed away on Friday, April 23, 2021, at UW Hospital in Madison. He was born on May 11, 1961, in Monroe, WI, the son of Vic and Liz (Brink) Babler.

Marti graduated from New Glarus High School in 1979. He had worked as a journeyman electrician and then for the New Glarus School District and later Meriter Hospital. Marti enjoyed spending time afield hunting and fishing, and he always enjoyed debates with those around him.

Marti is survived by his daughters, Ashley and Molli Jo Babler; parents, Vic and Liz Babler; siblings, Mike (Mary) Babler, Mark (Mary) Babler, and Mara (Greg) Shedivy; nieces; nephews; and his great-nieces and great-nephews who knew him as "Uncle Smarty".

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Walter and Ruth Brink; grandfather, Lloyd Babler; and uncle, Don Brink.

A private family celebration of Marti's life will be held at a later date.

The Zentner-Beal Funeral Home of New Glarus is assisting the family.

Memorials are suggested to the Green Cares Food Pantry, Second Harvest Food Bank, or any local food pantry.
