Martin “Marty” Koepplin

Martin “Marty” Koepplin, 70, of New Rockford, ND, passed away on Wednesday, December 29, 2021, at Sanford Medical Center, Fargo, ND.

Martin Koepplin was born on September 7, 1951 to Elmer and Aneita (Longnecker) Koepplin in New Rockford, ND.    Marty attended Brantford school until 6th grade and then attended New Rockford until he graduated in 1969.

Marty was known for his one liners, especially the ones under his breath. He liked to travel and have fun with friends.  Marty liked everything in order and followed to a T, except the speed limit.  Marty enjoyed cooking, making sausage and jerky with his family, and happy hour at Hanson’s.  He loved spending time with his grandkids and great-grandkids and was famous for his “lunch box”.     

Marty is survived by his wife Janelle, sister Charlotte Koepplin, children Todd (Karen) Koepplin, Aaron (Danielle) Koepplin and Trisha (Jay) McMonagle; grandchildren Taylor (Amanda) Koepplin, Allyssa (Ross) Lewis, Kalli Koepplin, Kread Koepplin, Kerigan Koepplin, Hendrix Koepplin, Carter Beckley, Chevelle Beckley, Wylie McMonagle and Zaylie McMonagle; great-grandchildren Evelyn Koepplin & baby K. and Kenna Lewis & Grady Lewis.

He is preceded in death by his parents Aneita and Elmer Koepplin.

  29. Janelle, Dad (Bunk Rogers) & I, hurt for you & your loss. I guess my Mom won’t need to make him call home to let his Mom to let her know where he was & that he was safe & sound, because his Mom was waiting at the gates of Heaven with her arms wide open & I know God has him wrapped tightly in his arms.
