Brunswick St. in 1993 doesn't seem that far away in my memory, nor does hanging out with Marty, John & Darren. Great laughs, great times, great guy...

So many great memories of Marty. I first met him at St.FX in 1991. I remember walking down the hall and hearing "Mama Said Knock You Out" blasting from someone's room. I walked in, we started chatting, had a beer and became best of friends. He was the easiest going guy I'd ever met, honest and a big softie. Although we lost touch over the years, I'll always remember Marty with the best of memories. Thanks Marty for your friendship, I'll miss you brother.

Marty was the nicest guy who just loved to laugh. The absolute poster child for the phrase “what a great guy”. Condolences to his family and other friends.
