Martin Petersen, 78

Martin Petersen, 78 “Uncle Marty” unexpectedly left us on March 12, 2019, at the age of 78.

Longtime resident of Thiensville. Married to Diane (nee Sanfelippo) for almost 40 years; loving father of Brian (Lynn Bulgrin) and Daniel. Brother of Caryn Lamonica and Janice (Wayne) Hansen, brother-in-law of Sandy Sanfelippo, Steve (Sandy) Sanfelippo and Tom (Bonnie) Sanfelippo. Further survived by his grandchildren, and loved by his nieces and nephews, Chrissy, Ally, Nick, Mario, Melinda, Scott, Megan and Leslie.

Since Chrissy was born, he was only known as 'Uncle Marty' to our family. Marty loved spending time with his family.

He loved his extended family and friends, especially Ginny and her family. They meant so much to him and he loved spending time with them.

Marty was in Outside Sales a good portion of his career. He loved the travel and the opportunity to meet different people in all walks of life. He was never lonely when he traveled, as he made friends with anyone at any time. Marty’s sense of humor was his gift, as he loved to tease and laugh with everyone.

He loved Crossroads Presbyterian Church and the volunteer work he did for them. He met such wonderful friends that have become his Crossroads family.

A memorial service was held at Crossroads Presbyterian Church.

In lieu of flowers, memorials appreciated to Crossroads Presbyterian Church.
