Martin Kuhlmann

April 18, 1971 - March 10, 2018

Martin Kuhlmann, 46, of Rancho Santa Margarita, California died March 10, 2018 while on a ski trip in Big Sky, Montana.

Martin was born on April 18, 1971 in Lennedstadt, Germany to Irmgard (Kramer) and Werner Kuhlmann. He grew up in the Sauerland region where he played soccer and was an avid runner. He attended the University of Technology Aachen, graduating with a Diploma Ingenieur der Electrotechnik in 1997. He then spread his wings and headed to the U.S. where he earned his PhD from the University of Minnesota in 1999.

In 1999, Martin moved to southern California to work for Broad-com. There, he met Rosalie Chin, whom he married in 2005. Soon after, they moved to Singapore for work. While in Asia, they traveled every chance they could get, and embraced every opportunity to see the world together. They returned to southern California at the end of 2007, where they have remained until this day.

Martin, “Crash” or “Crash Landing” as he was often known, em-braced life. He was fun, intense, smart, energetic, loyal, curious, caring, funny, and kind - all rolled into one. He loved mountain biking, skiing, camping, wine, poker, traveling, fantasy football, the Green Bay Packers, and spending time with his wife and children. He never failed to jump in to help a friend or person in need. He never stopped being curious about everything. He never stopped learning from the people around him.

Martin is survived by his wife, Rosalie, and their two children, Daniel and Madison. He is also survived by his parents, Irmgard and Werner; siblings, Barbara and Kathrine; and all the many close friends Martin has made over the years.

Viewing is scheduled for March 21st from 9-10am at Saddleback Chapel. A Celebration of Life service will immediately follow from 10am-11am, also at Saddleback Chapel. A Gathering of Friends will follow at The Yard House (Irvine) from 11:30am-3:30pm. Additionally, a memorial service is scheduled for April 6 at the Church of Kohlhagen in the Sauerland region of Germany.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks for your thoughts and prayers.
