Marty was a very friendly and talented man. Seeing him play his trombone in the band for the various city parades was a common sight. One could always spot him, because he was the tallest. He gave so much of himself to his family, friends, and community.
He had rotator cuff surgery in February, and then developed a blood clot in his arm. He later had a brain hemmorage and for the final days was in hospice care.
Marty was the father of one of my best girlfriends, Sharon. Being an only child, Sharon was "Daddy's little girl." Please keep Sharon and her mom in your prayers. Life will never be the same again without this wonderful man in our world.
