Marthyn “Buzz” Argent passed away on December 11, at his home in Steele, ND, from complications of dementia. 

Burial will take place December 15, at Woodlawn Cemetery in Steele, ND. 

A Celebration of Life will be held in the spring when the snow birds return.

He was born in 1943 and raised on the family farm. He went to country school for eight years and attended Steele High School where he lettered in football, basketball, baseball, and track. After he graduated from Concordia college, he married the love of his life, Sandra Wentz, and he began teaching in Moorhead. He loved teaching, coaching, hunting, and fishing. Buzz was a true do-it-yourself man and could fix just about anything. After retirement Buzz and Sandy moved back to Steele to live on the Argent homestead. They spent their winters in sunny AZ.

Buzz was preceded in death by his parents Reed and Martha and his son, David.

He is survived by his wife, Sandy; daughter, Stacey; son Jim; brother, John (Ardyce) and sister ReMar.
