Marty (Wilfred) Martell passed away at home on October 2, 2022. Marty was born on June 29, 1946 in Vermont to his parents Francis and Rita Martell. Marty was married to Jacque Darling in 1973 and they raised five kids together. Marty was a hardworking family man who was involved in all of his children’s activities. He spent many Saturdays attending sports events for his kids and also for his grandkids. Marty was also very involved in the church. He loved serving the Lord and loved all of his ward members. He had a love for country music and loved playing his guitar and singing too. He was able to see one of his favorites, Willie Nelson, in concert before he passed. He had a real love for old cars but never had the opportunity to own what he wanted. But he enjoyed talking about the old car that he would love to own some day and how he would restore it. Marty loved telling jokes but could never remember the punch line so it was funny to his family that he could mess up every joke. His sensitive side always showed when he would receive a card from his wife or any one of his kids. He would always make everyone in the room cry when he would read whatever card he was given. Marty was a very social person. He would make friends with whomever wherever he was. “He Never Met a Stranger”. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
He is survived by his wife, Jacque Martell, and his four children: Dione Jackson, daughter, (Joe, Makayla, Logan, and Jenna), Blaine Martell, son, (Kate, Ocean, Lilly, Carly, and Dylan), Scott Martell, son, (Sarah, Jonah, and Lyric) and Amber Richins, daughter, (Troy, Bradley, and Preston). He was preceded in death by Shawna Butkowski, daughter, (Ryan and Gavin).
He is survived by four brothers and two sisters. He was preceded in death by two brothers.
Services will be held on Saturday, October 29, 2022, at 10:30 am. The services will be held at the LDS Chapel 9825 West Desert Inn Rd, Las Vegas, NV. A luncheon will be held right after the service. Please feel free to join the family in celebrating Marty.

Rest In Peace! You were a wonderful brother. I was quite a bit younger but remember many good times. Your laugh was contagious. Love you!
I am so sorry to hear of Marty’s passing. We had so much fun working together. He always acknowledged me at the end of every week and would say “Thanks for all your hard work” I often tell people this and how much it meant to me. I will miss you and always remember you.
