Louis Blazer III Obituary

Louis Martin “Marty” Blazer III, of Findlay Township, Clinton, PA, passed away suddenly at the age of 53 on January 8, 2024. He was born in Churchill, PA, on February 18, 1970, son to the late Margaret (Hussey) and Louis Blazer II. Marty was an extremely devoted and loving husband to his wife of 25 years, Tricia (Yanni) Blazer, and the best and most loving father his children, Madison, Connor, and Arianna, could have asked for. Marty’s legacy is carried on not only by his wife and children but also by his sisters, Lynda (James) Funk and Robin (Lee) Howatineck; his sister-in-law, Dana (Lance) Yanni; his nieces, Jordan (Vincent) Capponi, Devon (RJ) Dulemba, and Haylee Howatineck, and his nephews, Tyson (Taylor) Blazer and Anthony Baney, along with all of their children; preceded in death by his sister, Heather Baney.

Marty graduated in 1988 from Norwin High School where he was a scholar and star athlete. There he played baseball, basketball, and was the quarterback for the Norwin Knights. He furthered his education at Carnegie Mellon University earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Science in 1992. He also played football at CMU and was a member of Beta Theta Phi fraternity. In 1994, he obtained his master’s degree from the Tepper School of Business. After graduation, he began his career in finance with Merrill Lynch. From there, he went to Smith Barney where he grew his career and became a vice president, focusing on wealth management for high-net-worth individuals and athletes. Marty was most recently employed as a Senior National Account Manager for Titan Technologies.

In 1998, Marty married the love of his life, Tricia Yanni. They moved to Coraopolis, PA, where they bought their first home and had their three children. In 2008, the family built a home in Clinton, PA, where they continued to raise their children who were Marty’s greatest blessings. He prioritized family above all else. Marty’s best times by far were the ones spent with his wife, their children, and their beloved Italian Greyhound, Newton. Marty took the most pleasure in the simple moments. His favorite things were watching TV shows or a movie with his wife, going to his son, Connor’s, soccer games, watching his daughter, Arianna, cheer, sipping one of his favorite bourbons and talking about politics and history with his oldest daughter, Madison, and going to dinner with his close-knit group of friends. Marty also enjoyed working out, bike riding, going for walks with his dog, reading, and writing in his journal. He had a great sense of humor and a keen interest in current events and trivia. Marty will be remembered for his wit and wisdom and the laughter that he brought to every gathering. Above all, Marty was a devoted family man and an extremely loyal friend. He will be deeply missed by all who have had the pleasure of knowing him.
