Marty,
We used to tell kids at Wilbur Trimpe we were cousins because we shared our last name.
Marty and I painted stripes on my ’70 Road Runner in his basement garage. His mom wasn’t happy with us, again! The whole house smelled of spray paint.
Marty’s parents got him a new ’74 Chevy Vega, gold and shining. Marty had a very difficult time explaining to his parents how he was driving the back road to Forrest Homes, they had just graded the road. Somehow Marty ended up in the bar ditch, they were steep and deep and his right side of the car drug the right side of the ditch, wiping it out. But what made it worse, somehow the car’s right front started climbing the bank and the left side of the car drug the left side of the ditch too. Not a pretty sight on anyone’s car. I don’t remember what Marty’s parents did, I wasn’t there, thank God. But it seems to me I didn’t see Marty anywhere but at school for a while.
Before we could drive, and that changed everything of course, we did a lot of things, good and some not so good. Skating, playing hockey on Shake’s Pond, going down in the woods! One time we had some of those little whisky bottles you get on planes, we stuffed them full of gun powder and we made home-made fuses. We were kids, indestructible. We took them out into the woods behind Marty’s house and lit them off, somewhat similar to big firecrackers. I think it was Doug that found a hole in a tree we thought was a woodpecker hole or something. We stuffed the last little bottle deep in the hole, Marty lit the fuse, it went fast, we dove for it, nothing, nothing, ……nothing, but as we got up and approached the tree, it fizzed again and as we bailed it blew. We’re talking a howitzer going off, we had neighbors and cops before you could say run. Indestructible, that was us! P.S. destroyed that damn tree too.
I’ll miss him greatly. Say hi to the Gang for me Marty! Love Ya Man!

There are no amount of words that can express what this man (my friend) has meant to me over the better part of the past two decades.
He was my brother in life...….work......rock & roll...….and last but not least cold beer!
He was a brother in every single way except from same parents.
It's incredibly tough to imagine carrying on without him! But it's a fact of life unfortunately we cannot change.
His spirit will live on within me and everyone who knew him best.
I take comfort in knowing there'll be plenty to remind me of Marty as we shared many of the same interests, particularly in music.
I will miss you my friend and I will see you again......just not yet....not yet. PEACE

My husband loved to laugh . He had a wonderful smile which would radiate over his entire face . I've always told him he was like french bread.. crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. He loved with his whole heart . He may not have expressed it with words everyday but he showed me everyday. He was my world . I hope and pray that I made him feel all the love that I had for him .. Ali and he were two peas in a pod. They laughed and napped (they were good at that) and loved each other unconditionally . He called me his "honey bunny barbie doll" Too many little things to share, it wasn't necessarily big things everyday but it is the little things that matter for sure, Happy Anniversary my love, my husband, my life !!!

Marty will always be missed. I remember when he and his family moved in next door to me. We became instant and great friends. We grew up together and ran around together all the time. He was more like a brother to me. His family treated me like family too.
The news of this great loss in life was hard to hear. I didn’t want to believe it. But the friendship we had , all the times and memories I have hold irreplaceable value to me. I will truly miss him being in this world. Freddie Thomas

I have known Marty since Jr High, it seems, only a few years ago. Marty always enjoyed having a good time. I remember riding around with a friend in his hatchback, a Gremlin, I believe. It did not matter how many years had passed between visits. He would always greet you with a hug and a smile. He will be MISSED. My deepest sympathy to Stacy and the family. Praying for peace and comfort.
