Martin “Marty” Joseph Mutnansky, age 67, who lost his battle with MDS/AML, died on November 27, 2023 surrounded by his loving family. Throughout an entire year of cancer treatment, he prayed for a miracle of healing in which he received when he entered into eternal life in the arms of his loving God.
Born January 12, 1956 in Lorain, Ohio to the late James “Jim” and Florence “Flo” (Jara) Mutnansky, Marty was a “simplicated,” simple yet complicated man. Despite a bold, opinionated, and sometimes rugged exterior, he was truly a warm, generous, tender, and loving man on the inside with a very strong will to live. Stubborn to the end, he was adamant that he could do anything with prayer – and just a little cayenne pepper. A die-hard Cleveland Browns fan, he told doctors he wanted to live long enough to see the Browns win the Super Bowl.
Marty graduated from Lorain Catholic High School in 1974 where he played trumpet for four years in the high school band. After school, Marty worked at Ford Motor Company for 28 years retiring in 2007. Marty enjoyed woodworking and home building projects.
He was a member of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church where he played guitar for 22 years in the choir, where he and Margie met. He also played for the church day camp in the summer for many years.
Marty was a member of the Knights of Columbus Council #10063 of New London. With hard work and determination, he supported bringing back a benefit golf tournament, and chaired the event for over 10 years. With his leadership and love of golf, he raised many funds for the organization and this was something he was very proud of. In 2023, he was the recipient of the “K of C Knight of the Year”.
Marty spent as much time as possible playing golf and was an active member of the Millstone Hills Golf Club, where he hit a hole-in-one in 2009. Golf was his true passion in life, he enjoyed the peace, tranquility and divinity on the greens and he played in three different golf leagues.
He was also very enthusiastic about music, both playing and listening. He was a fan of Pink Floyd, Genesis, and Phil Collins. He instilled his love of both golf and music in his children and grandchildren.
Left to cherish Marty’s memory are his beloved wife, Marjorie (Wise/Amburgy); sons, Eric (Linda) Amburgy of New London, and Kevin (Ami) Amburgy of Medina; daughter Maria (Kurt) Detterman of New London; and siblings, Cheryl Mutnansky of Norwalk, Stephanie Landy of Norwalk, Pete (Maria) Mutnansky of Kipton, and Mary (Brian Steele) Mutnansky of Norwalk. Additional survivors include his grandchildren, Dax, Kaitlyn, Kade, Madilyn, Ian, Jack, and Makayla Josephine, who was named in his honor, who all called him P-pops; as well as many other nieces, nephews, relatives, and close friends.
Marty was preceded in death by his parents, a brother, Jim “Jimbo” Mutnansky, and step-mother, Jean (Grosse) Mutnansky.
