Marty was a kind and soft spoken man with a subtle sense of humor. He was a loving husband, brother, father and grandfather. He faced his impending death with great dignity and continued to be a part of life until he could no more. He will be missed and remembered with fondness and respect. May his memory be a blessing.

Where do I begin? What can be said? When you fail to find the words to express the loss of such a gentlemanly portrayal, perhaps it transcends one's understanding...albeit from the vocal cords of my heart-I promise you, each day I saunter past your house, I will partake in a backward glance--I know I will not see that kind & gentle face (one that Van Gogh would adore to capture on canvas) but I'll always remember he was there...With Eternal Love, Shoshana

Martin was such a welcoming host when Leslie invited us to Thanksgiving and he hadn’t met us before. He shared his family and a delicious feast with us. We will always remember what a wonderful time we had with great conversation and lots of laughs.
