Martin Statler

May 16, 1931 — March 9, 2020

Martin R. Statler, 88 of Greensburg, passed away Monday, March 9, 2020 at Westmoreland Manor. He was born May 16, 1931, in Latrobe, the son of late Robert Martin and Elizabeth (Harr) Statler.

Martin was a veteran of the Korean War serving in the Air Force. He attended Greensburg Alliance Church. He built Statler’s Par-3 and driving range and ran it with his wife Patricia. He assisted his son, Scott, expanding it to become Statler’s Fun Center, when the go-kart track and miniature golf were added. His grandson, Daniel, who owns and operates it now, added the batting cages.

Martin was an expert woodworker, whose beautiful work is owned and appreciated by many family members. He was also a golf pro, having been a student of Deacon Palmer, who along with his son, Arnold Palmer were his references when joining the PGA. Martin was a well known storyteller, sharing epic tales of his incredible life. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his loving wife of 62 years, Patricia Ann (Ross) Statler.
