Phillip Huber Martin, age 37 years, 9 months, and 29 days, of Colby, passed away on Monday, December 20, 2021, at 1:02 P.M. at U.W. Meriter Hospital in Madison.

Phillip was born on February 21, 1984, in Ephrata, PA, the first child of Virgil H. and Eunice L. (Huber) Martin. He was united in marriage to Joanna Herr (Oberholtzer) Martin on May 27, 2006, at the home of the bride in Unity. They lived together in Colby for 15.5 years. Phillip excelled in being a careful semi driver for his occupation the majority of his life.

In Oct. of 2021, he passed his physical exam for CDL’s with flying colors. Phillip was a healthy man with no known health issues. On Nov. 30, 2021, he woke up with a fever. On Dec. 7, 2021, he tested positive for the Delta strain of Covid. On Dec. 20, 2021, he peacefully exchanged time for eternity, while his wife and parents stood by his bedside. We have peace in knowing in the final hours of life, before sedation for the ventilator, he settled his account with the Lord. Thank You Jesus!
