Memories and Condolences

I was suprised and saddened to learn of Marty’s passing. I’ll remember Marty as an easy going, kind and compassionate man. Marty was always ready and willing to do spur of the moment things, and he had a good sense of humor which caused him to be a lot of fun. It’s been a while since I’ve seen him, but I do know that Marty spoke often and fondly of his nephews, and spending time on the boat. Marty my friend, rest easy now. I’ll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. And I thank God our paths crossed, and I feel honored to call you a “friend.”
Marty dedicated his life to service of others. He was a paratrooper - he was unafraid to jump into the enemy’s positions. And then he spent his professional career as a Philadelphia Firefighter. On top of his guts and lifetime dedication to society - he was a good man and a great dependable friend. You are missed already - I will never forget you as a man, a paratrooper, firefighter and friend. Rest my brother as you land in the giant Dropzone in the sky! Feet and knees together.
It was always nice to sit and have a conversation with Marty. I just found out last week that he had passed away. I have fond memories of him. Vince Kenna Cherry Hill, NJ
