Martin Unger Obituary

Martin J Unger III, known affectionately as "Marty" to all who knew him, has left the stage of life. Born on December 19, 1957, in the small town of Boyertown, PA, Marty managed to make the world a brighter, funnier place before he took his final bow in Reading, PA. His cause of death?  Natural causes, or as Marty would have put it, "That’s all folks!" Marty was the spirited son of Martin J Unger Jr. and Rita Marie Dagan-Mesta, both of whom had already taken their final curtain calls. He leaves behind a loving family that includes his wife Kimberly, his daughter Jennifer, and a whole gaggle of nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great nephews. Each one of them can attest to the fact that Marty was a man who knew how to put a smile on your face and keep it there. A proud graduate of Boyertown High School, Marty was a man of many talents. He was a veteran of the army and a hardworking package handler at FedEx Ground in Breinigsville, Pennsylvania. He was a country gentleman, a hunter, a hiker, and a music lover. Marty loved the peaceful country lifestyle, raising animals, and finding any excuse to be outdoors. He was a man who could fix anything with a roll of duct tape and a good joke. And if he couldn't fix it, he'd at least make you laugh about it. He was known for his quick wit, his friendly demeanor, and his handyman skills. If you needed a laugh, a hand, or a good story, Marty was your man. He was a man who could find humor in any situation, a trait that endeared him to all who knew him. Marty's love for life, laughter, and the great outdoors was infectious. His stories were legendary, his humor was timeless, and his ability to make the mundane seem magical was a gift. He was the kind of man who could turn a trip to the grocery store into an adventure, a rainy day into a chance to make a splash, and a flat tire into a comedy sketch. In his passing, Marty leaves behind a legacy of laughter, love, and life lived to the fullest. His spirit, his humor, and his love for life will be deeply missed, but his memory will continue to bring smiles to the faces of those who knew him. So here's to Martin J Unger III, to Marty, a man who lived life with a twinkle in his eye, a joke on his lips, and a heart full of love. May his stories continue to inspire laughter, his memory continue to bring joy, and his spirit continue to remind us all to live life with a smile.  Rest in peace, Marty.  And thanks for the laughs. You truly were one of a kind.  In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Reading Opportunity House.
