Marty Dittmer

April 7, 1952 - September 22, 2021 (69 years old)


We are sad to announce that on September 22, 2021 we had to say goodbye to Marty Dittmer of Davenport, Iowa. Family and friends can light a candle as a loving gesture for their loved one. Leave a sympathy message to the family in the guestbook on this memorial page of Marty Dittmer to show support.

Marty also loved to drive and would be “Driving Ms. Jeri” to estate sales and shopping trips just to sit in the car and patiently wait for her return.  Up until his last days, he enjoyed a cold Diet Mountain Dew. “Oh, that’s good!” He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

Marty died peacefully Wednesday, September 22, 2021 at his home surrounded by family after complications from a stroke.
