I envision Marty at his desk all smiles and surrounded by images of nature, an Indian canoe, river guide books, photos and the like. Marty loved to talk about his tenure with the U.S. Army. He was with the 101st airborne in fort Campbell Ky. He took the long range recognizance (RECONDO) school. This was not a choice for the faint hearted. Marty loved personally assigning me cases, saying "Next victim" as he read each one. Marty was kind and sympathetic, taking on Government to get the best care for his adopted, special needs son. He was a good friend to all and keep in contact with his army friends. He will be sorely missed but now free of earthly bonds will soar like an eagle.

I just learned of Marty's passing. We met several years ago at a support group for Autism parents. He always made me laugh. I appreciated his strength and perseverance in fighting for his child's rights. He had no filter and would put you in your place rather quickly when necessary. I ran into him over the years at different places. The last time I saw him was at the QT. Shortly after I learned of his cancer and I had no idea that his health had took a turn or that he was in hospice. My heartfelt condolences goes out to Justin and the family. Gone too soon.
