Marcelino (Marce) Wittman, 62, passed away with his family by his side on Sunday, October 31, 2021, after a two and a half year battle with prostate cancer. He was born on November 13, 1958, to Olga Wittman and the late LeRoy Wittman. Marce graduated from Appleton East High School in 1977. Five years later, he met the love of his life, Michelle Wittman, and they married in 1985. Together they built the life and family they always dreamed of. Marce worked at Independent Printing as a Die Cutter for 30 years. He loved his job and never missed an opportunity to point out things he saw in the community that he had made at work. When Marce was not working, you could often find him in the garage helping his son, Matthew, work on his race car or at Wisconsin International Raceway on Thursday nights. He also enjoyed fishing, NASCAR, the Packers and his many woodworking projects. Marce was most notably known for his sarcastic sense of humor and hilarious one-liners.
