August 24, 2005

Edward F. "Fitz" Marburger Jr., a pilot and former Pasadena resident, died in his sleep Aug. 17 at his home in St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. He was 74.

Mr. Marburger was born in Salem, Ohio, and raised in Pottsville, Pa. He earned a bachelor's degree from Susquehanna University and during the 1950s served with the Navy's Seabees.

He taught special-education students for several years in Middleburg, Pa., and was a flight instructor in New Cumberland, Pa., before coming to Pasadena in the 1970s and working as a home inspector.

Since 1991, he had lived in St. Thomas, where he flew passengers from St. John to St. Thomas.

"He loved to fly and his cremated remains will be spread from his plane," said Cindy Marburger of Mechanicsburg, Pa., a daughter-in-law.

Plans for services are incomplete.

Surviving are his wife of 15 years, the former Judy Touger; five sons, Edward F. Marburger III of Mechanicsburg, David Marburger of Duncannon, Pa., Russell Marburger of Etters, Pa., N. George Marburger of Jupiter, Fla., and Eric Marburger of Severna Park; two stepsons, Patrick Doyle and Timothy Doyle, both of Baton Rouge, La.; a stepdaughter, Jennifer Webre of Baton Rouge; a brother, Robert Marburger of San Carlos, Calif.; eight grandchildren; and a great-granddaughter. Marriages to the former Julia Auker and Mitzi Savage ended in divorce.
