It is with incredible sadness we announce the sudden death of Martin “Marty” Ulrich, age 75, in Lethbridge, Alberta on February 12, 2020.
He was born in Blairmore, Alberta in 1944 to Katherine (Michalsky) and Joe Ulrich. Marty married the love of his life and soul mate Marie Wojszel 54 years ago. Marty was the loving father of Marty (Charlene Julien) Ulrich of Mesa, AZ and Robbie (Kristie) Ulrich of Lethbridge, AB, and devoted grandfather to Stephen and Christopher Ulrich of Lethbridge, AB. Stephen & Chris called him “the man, the myth, the legend”.
Marty worked as an automotive mechanic since 1958 in Blairmore and retired from Canadian Tire South Lethbridge in 2014 at the age of 69. While still working full time, Marty and Marie operated the Dry Bean in Center Village Mall. Marty was extremely dedicated to and traveled extensively with his family. Throughout his life, Marty & Marie met wonderful friends all over the world through their work and travels. Marty was an avid curler and lifelong fan that orchestrated numerous Bunny bonspiels in the Crowsnest Pass in the 70s and 80s.
He will be remembered for his dedicated and lighthearted approach to life bringing a smile and joy to everyone around him.
Marty was predeceased by his mother, father and brother Charles Ulrich, and remaining brothers living are Gordon (Joyce) Ulrich and Henry Ulrich both of Lethbridge and numerous nieces and nephews.
The family wishes to thank everyone for the visits, phone calls, messages, food, flowers and support that you have given us in this time of heartache. At the request of Marty, he did not wish for a funeral; however, a celebration of life will be held in the spring. Information will be posted at a later date.
“Losing a wonderful husband as special as you,
has left my heart aching and broken in two.
No words can describe my grief and my pain,
I would give anything to see you again.
Holding you tight within my heart, my love,
until we meet again.”
your loving Angel (“Marie”)
