Marty started Iowa Reprographics in 1995 with two partners, then became sole proprietor in 2001. He developed many close friendships through his business.

He was a member of Waveland Golf Association for many years. He also enjoyed vintage cars, disc golf, and Cardinals baseball. He loved all kinds of creatures, but especially his dogs, Lucy and Penny.

The family wishes to extend special thanks to Kristina Steffes-Clayton for her invaluable help at Iowa Reprographics, especially during Marty's illness. Also many thanks to his dear friends, especially the guys in the garage.

Memorial contributions may be directed to the Keokuk Evangelical Free Church, DMARC Food Pantry or the animal rescue organization of the donor's choice.
