Marty was born Sept. 25, 1960, in Dubuque, son of William and Marilyn (Pins) Beyer. He was a 1979 graduate of Western Dubuque High School in Epworth and Northeast Iowa Community College in Calmar. On Jan. 7, 1984, he was united in marriage to Mary Kris Posey at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Dubuque. Marty owned and operated Beyer Auto Body and Collison INC., in Epworth since 1981.
Marty was a devoted family man and life of the party. Every time family and friends were together, it would always turn into a “Marty Party.” He loved all his friends like they were family and never missed out on a good friendly Prank. He loved every moment spent with his wife. They enjoyed cruising in his antique cars. They took many trips with friends and family to the white sandy beaches where there were endless cold drinks. He was most happy when all his family was together. Each summer spent at the family cabin in Northern Minnesota. His biggest joy was spending time out in the timber hunting, or on the lake fishing with his sons. He loved visiting his daughter in Des Moines where they would often find themselves trying new restaurants, breweries, and wineries. He was always just a phone call away and never missed a moment he could spend with his children. He adored his grandchildren. He was always there to give lawn mower and four-wheeler rides, whisker rubs, cold ‘burrs’, play shenanigans and to attend sporting events.
He is survived by his wife, Mary Kris Beyer, of Peosta; three children, Ryan (Kelly) Beyer, of Manchester, Mitchell Beyer of Peosta, Jillian (Zach) Hauser of Des Moines; four grandchildren; Koy, Kade and Laynee Beyer and Grayson Hauser; his parents William and Marilyn Beyer of Epworth; four brothers; Gary (Bonnie) Beyer of Vinton, Ken (Dawn) Beyer of Epworth, Bill (Janann) Beyer of Conrad and Tom (Chrissy) Beyer of Arlington Heights, Ill.; two sisters, Kris (Chad) Jensen of Grundy Center and Kim (Eric) Olson of New Hampton; his mother and father-in-law William and Kay Posey of Dyersville; one sister-in-law Kimberly (Dennis) King of Cedar Rapids; one brother-in-law Fred (Olga) Posey of Portage, Ind. and nieces and nephews; Kyle (Andy) Beyer, Luke Beyer, William (Joyce) Beyer, Shelby Beyer, Shaun Beyer, Helen Beyer, Braden, Brannen and Dayne Jensen, Kallie, Kacey and Lydia Olson.
