May 31, 1951—April 16, 2019
Martin (Marty/Mort) Mason, age 67, passed on Tuesday, April 16, 2019, peacefully at home. Marty graduated from St. Helens High School in 1969 and went to work at Longview Fibre where he retired after 37 ½ years in 2006. He started his own business, 3 M Construction, the same month as retirement and worked until a month before his death.
Marty loved garage sales, auctions, or anything else that might have automobile memorabilia to add to his never-ending collection. He enjoyed boating and spending time at his Lake Mayfield cabin. He was larger than life, no-nonsense, tell it like it is kinda guy, and never idle. He was a loving husband and father, nonstop hard worker and a perfectionist of his work. He enjoyed life, had many friends and was anxiously awaiting the birth of his first grandchild Harper Rose. Marty has touched the lives of countless people and will truly be missed.
He is survived by his wife Suzi (Dobyns) Mason, sons Christopher and Nick Mason, his brother Gary Mason and his sister Barbara Wootan. He was preceded in death by his father Wylan (Doc) Mason, and mother Rachael Rose Mason.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, April 28, from 2-5 p.m. at the Moose Lodge, 921 Washington Way in Longview.
