SLTWYC - South Lake Tahoe Windjammers Yacht Club

Hi Yacht Club Members

It is with a sad heart that I would like to notify you of the passing of my good friend and fellow club member, Marty DeTarr. After a long battle with cancer, Marty, passed away peacefully last Friday, June 28th, at home with his wife, Leslie, and their two sons, Chris and Alex, by his side.

 Marty DeTarr



Marty was born March 1st, 1953 and brought home to Tahoe Valley a couple days later. He graduated South Tahoe High in 1970, a year earlier than his class and went on to graduate from U.C. Davis. He operated his business, Diamond Doors, from 1998 until his retirement. Marty was a well known and liked member of the local community. He was active and a past officer of the South Lake Tahoe Yacht Club, Windjammer Yacht Club and the Optimist Club.

Marty loved to sail and to travel and often combined those loves by doing Sailboat charters in exotic places with family and friends.

A Celebration of Life is being held on Friday, July 12th, at 11:00 am at the Sierra Community Church. Dress is beach casual.

We miss you Marty.
