Martin E. Eibs died unexpectedly Sept. 24, 2020, at Osceola Medical Center. He was 58.
Martin was born Sept. 20, 1962, in St. Croix Falls, to Donald and Dianne (Hanson) Eibs. He attended St. Croix Falls High School and studied at UW-River Falls in Computer Science. Martin went on to work for Keene Consulting at IBM on the new AS/400 platform, followed by Coca-Cola, HelpSystems, Polk-Burnett and recently with Daffron/Milsoft Utility Solutions as a Software Engineer.
On Feb. 17, 1995, Martin married his best friend Pam (Truhlsen) Eibs and lived in Hudson and Houlton, then moving to the house they had built in Dresser in 2003.
Martin loved to hunt, primarily whitetail, and would tolerate fishing because Pam loved to go. He enjoyed spending weekends with fun activities at the hunting cabin with friends, riding ATVs, shooting sporting clays or prepping for the hunting seasons. Martin also enjoyed golfing, heading out on canoe weekend with his Phi Sig brothers and could be found watching football or golf on Sunday afternoons. He loved his Irish setter, Murphy, and their daily rides in the truck.
Martin was preceded in death by his parents and grandparents.
He is survived by his wife Pam; sister, Amy Eibs; nephew Alec; nieces Sarah, Cassandra, Rachel, Carly, MacKenzie and Madison; and many friends and family.
When Martin was your friend, he was your true friend. He will be greatly missed, thought of fondly and forever in our hearts.
