Charles Martin Amsler III

Martin Amsler, a man whose presence filled rooms and hearts alike, passed away on April 24, 2024 at the age of 53. Born on December 4 in Green Bay, Wisconsin, Martin's journey through life was marked by his unwavering passion for family, sports and storytelling.


A devoted father to his two cherished sons, Andrew (Drew) Amsler and Matthew Amsler, Martin's love for his boys was palpable in every aspect of his life. They were his pride and joy, his driving force, and the lights of his world.  All three Amsler men share a love for sports and their fervent support for the Chicago Bears is legendary. Martin’s enthusiasm for the game was infectious, and his boys will carry on the legacy of Bears support into the future, ensuring that the roar of the crowd and the thrill of victory continue to echo through the generations.


Throughout his illustrious career spanning over two decades, Martin made an indelible mark as a journalist with television stations across the United States. His dedication to the truth and his ability to weave compelling narratives touched the lives of countless people, earning him respect and admiration throughout the industry. In his final career chapter, Martin served as the General Manager with United Ground Express in Milwaukee, demonstrating his versatility and leadership in yet another arena. His commitment to excellence and his natural ability to connect with people left an enduring impact on all who had the privilege of working alongside him.


Beyond his professional accomplishments, Martin will be remembered for the warmth of his spirit and the kindness of his heart. He possessed an unparalleled gift for making everyone feel seen and valued, and his larger-than-life presence brought light to even the darkest of days.


As we bid farewell to a beloved father, friend and colleague, let us take solace in the memories we shared and the love that will forever endure. May Martin's legacy serve as a guiding light for his beloved sons, Drew and Matthew, as they navigate the journey ahead, knowing that their father's love will be with them always.


In addition to his two sons, Martin is survived by his devoted mother, Margaret Ewald, who tirelessly provided love and care during his fight against cancer, his sister, Michelle Hamric, who fought for him during his final months in treatment.  Martin was always in awe of Michelle, and looked up to her even though he was the elder sibling.  He also leaves behind cousins (who were more like little brothers) Andrew and Eric Ockert, and cherished nephew and nieces, John Jay, Lauren, and Allison Hamric, who brought immense joy and laughter to his life.


Martin was preceded in death by his father, Marty Amsler and his aunt, Lori Ockert.


Rest in peace, Martin. You will be deeply missed, but your spirit will live on in the countless lives you touched.
