    • Alex Marton, Jr.
      (November 11, 1912 - November 1, 2006)

      Alex Marton, Jr.
      Mr. Alex Marton, ?Papa Marton?, 93, of Lake City, died peacefully Wednesday, November 1, 2006, at his home surrounded by his family. A native of Fairfield, Connecticut, Mr. Marton had been a resident of Columbia County since 1937 having moved here from Green Cove Springs, Florida. Mr. Marton was the fourth of eleven children born to the late Alex & Julia Varga Marton, who were immigrants from Hungary. Mr. Marton worked with the Civilian Conservation Corp., that was established by Pres. Roosevelt, for several years. He worked with them plowing fire lines which eventually led him to a job with the State of Florida Division of Forestry. He worked with the Division of Forestry for thirty-nine years retiring in 1976 as a Fire Control Coordinator over Columbia, Suwannee, Hamilton, Union, Taylor and Lafayette counties. Following his retirement Mr. Marton remained active traveling to Hungary to meet relatives, and volunteering at the Lake City Medical Center for many years. He was very active in his church activities and served as the ward clerk of the church for many years. He very much enjoyed square dancing and tending to his yard and his garden. Mr. Marton was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints 1st Ward. He will forever be remembered as a fun loving prankster who loved all children and was a very family oriented man.

      Mr. Marton is survived by his wife of sixty-nine years, Margurette Milton Marton; two sons, Gerald A. Marton(Lydia), Fort Worth, Texas; and Harry P. Marton of Stillwater, Oklahoma, two brothers, Julius Marton, Waterford, Connecticut and Robert ?Bob? Marton(Betty) of Central Point, Oregon; a sister, Carolyn Marton of Green Cove Springs, Florida; and two sisters-in-law, Marie Wheeler of Lake City and Jackie Criswell (?Wink?) of Orange Park, Florida. Eight grandchildren and ten great grand-children also survive. Numerous nephews and nieces and other family members, including his loving and devoted caregivers, his nephew Joseph Parrish and his niece Debra Parrish Dees also survive.

      Funeral services for Mr. Marton will be conducted at 3:00 P.M., Saturday, November 4, 2006, in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Old Country Club Road) with Bishop Mark Duren officiating. Interment will follow in Memorial Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 4-7:00 Friday evening at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers the family requests that memorial donations be made to the Haven Hospice of the Suwannee Valley, (Children?s Programs) 618 S.W. Florida Gateway Dr., Lake City, FL 32024.
