G. Martin (Marty) Eichelberger

April 9, 1942 — June 20, 2024

Camp Hill

Marty, 82, of Mechanicsburg, passed unexpectedly on June 20th, 2024. Marty was born on April 9th, 1942 in York, Pennsylvania or God’s Country as he often referred to it. He was the son of the late George and Theadora (Poor) Eichelberger and the widower of his beloved wife and best friend of 50 years, Susan (Keim) Eichelberger. A day never went by when Marty didn’t say he was “blessed” by his loving family. Left behind to carry his legacy and his love are his son, Daniel W. Eichelberger, daughter in law Rebecca, his daughter, Katie Clarke, son in law Allen, and his three grandsons Davis Clarke, Grady Clarke and Benjamin Eichelberger. He is also survived by his sister Edith Jo Savage and many beloved nieces and nephews. Marty was so thankful to find someone very special to love and share his final years and also leaves his “significant friend” Dorothy Disney.

Family was Marty’s greatest love. As a Dad, he was the best, supporting his kids in everything they did, socializing with them and their friends, and ultimately welcoming their extended families into his. He was an incredibly proud “Gumpy” to not only his grandchildren, but to their girlfriends and to all of their many friends. Time spent with his kids and grandkids was his most precious time.

Marty lived such a full life, never meeting a person that didn’t quickly become a friend. He loved sports and played many, eventually becoming a coach and then cheerleader for his kids and grandkids. He was a very proud Penn State grad and Delta Tau Delta brother, maintaining those close friendships for his entire life and embracing his Delt nickname “Beaver”. Marty was a long-time member of the West Shore Country Club and enjoyed nothing more than a game of golf with friends followed by a See Through at the bar. He loved Penn State tailgates, time spent at Hilton Head with Susan, evening sunsets at the cottage on the river in Dauphin, convertible rides through the countryside, Board Meetings with his friends at many of his favorite watering holes, strong handshakes, hugs and heavy backslaps, and, especially in the more recent years, travel to lots of new and beautiful places with Dorothy.

Marty, with Susan, built several businesses, ultimately founding LeTort Trust and creating an opportunity to work alongside his immediate family. But the LeTort Team, some of whom he has loved for many, many years, became his second family. Marty always said, “my clients are my friends” and the relationships he built with them proved just that. 

Everyone that knew Marty knew him as a generous man who enjoyed giving back to his community. He wanted his business success to also serve as a giving aid to the region, forming the Atgooth Foundation (now the LeTort Trust Foundation) to do just that. Marty served as a Hampden Township Commissioner in the 1980’s, on several nonprofit boards over the years, and was currently doing weekly Meals on Wheels deliveries.
