NORTH LIMA, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Marty Kelbel, 58, of North Lima, lost his battle to cancer on Thursday, June 3, 2021 at the Hospice House surrounded by his loved ones.
Marty was born February 2, 1963 in Toronto, Canada.

Marty was a metal fabricator and was employed at several sign companies. He took great pride in his work throughout the Valley.
He married the love of his life, Betty (Smallwood) Kelbel, on their favorite holiday, October 31, 2001. They loved and enjoyed every day of their lives together.
Marty was one in a million. He was a kindhearted soul that would help and give everything to make a difference for anyone. He loved music, motorcycling, traveling, fishing, hunting, baking and camping at Holiday Camplands. He was the best storyteller around! His favorite times were being with friends and family playing games, listening to music and sitting around a campfire. We will miss our Marty man.
His parents preceded him in death, Martin and Agnes (Yakimoff) Kelbel.
Marty is survived by his loving wife, Betty Kelbel; his favorite cousins, Patty, Michelle, Eric, Sophie and Stella and many others.
