Martin G. Vitz BS '48, MS '49, Oct. 1, 2012, Corvallis, Ore..
Martin G. Vitz, age 93, passed away October 1, 2012 from cancer. Martin earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees on the GI Bill at Stout. Martin’s teaching career spanned more than 30 years and included the School for the Deaf, Riverside, CA; Northview High School, Covina, CA; and Hoover High School, Glendale, CA. He taught industrial arts, history, and math. He volunteered as a Boy Scout leader and served as the club advisor for the American Field Service (AFS) Club. Through the years he opened the family home to five foreign exchange students. Martin was as handy with a saw or a wrench as he was with a sewing machine. Over a decade, he constructed his retirement home, he helped his son build his first car (a dune buggy), and he sewed prom dresses for his daughters. Martin was preceded in death by his wife, Eleanor B. Vitz. He is survived by his brothers: John Vitz and Bob Vitz; and his children: Alice Tucker, Frank Vitz, Kathleen Vitz and Nora Vitz Harrison.
