Martin K. Yuhas of Oconomowoc lost his courageous battle with brain cancer on Thursday, Feb. 24, 2011.

He is survived by Nancy, his loving wife of 41 years. He was the dear father of Trevor (Melinda) Yuhas and Tyler (Heather) Yuhas, both of Jefferson, and Trista (Bryan) Meier of Hartford; grandpa of Mariah, Mikayla and Mataya; papa to Luke, Bryson and Kyler; and brother of Dennis (Mary Beth) of Titusville, Fla., Kevin (Rosie) of Appleton, Carol (Jim) Munday of Myrtle Beach, S.C., Cynthia (Bob) Staub of Montgomery, Ala., Marsha Rich (his twin) of Lavergne, Tenn., and Geri Wasczak of Jackson. He is further survived by his mother-in-law, Bette Rougeau of Port Orange, Fla. and sisters-in-law Cheryl Pike of Waukesha and Cindee Richardson of Milwaukee.

He is also survived by other relatives and friends. He will be deeply missed by his dog, Zoie.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Al and Lucille Yuhas; his brothers, Thomas, Duane and Sean; and sisters, Nancy Koloski and Beverly Friske.

Marty retired in 1996 from Navistar after 26 years and moved to Nashville shortly after retiring. He spent five years enjoying new found friends and loving country music. Best of all, he enjoyed taking out-of-town visitors to downtown Nashville to the bars to hear the Wanna Bee’s. Marty has always kept busy fixing and tinkering with things. He enjoyed time spent with his grandchildren.

Friends may visit from 4 p.m. until the 6 p.m. funeral service Monday, Feb. 28, at St. William Catholic Church, 440 N. Moreland Blvd., Waukesha.
