My heartfelt condolences to the family. Marty was my Uncle through my Aunt Gloria. I will always remember him as such a thoughtful and caring man. He always made us laugh and we always had fun when we were with him.

Sorry to hear of the death of Martin. Although I only casualty
knew him when I lived in Scranton more than 40 years ago but Buddy and I were real close in those days.

May Martin Rest in Peace

I was shocked to hear about Marty from the obituary in the paper - I had no idea he was in the area! We were very good friends for a long time and then lost touch quite a while ago. Marty was a wonderful supportive friend and a good man. I'm so sorry I didn't try to contact him sooner, and now it's too late. My condolences to Craig and Nat and Shirley too.
