Martin Edward Gahn,72, of Fremont, passed away Wednesday, January 30, 2019 at Fremont ProMedica Memorial Hospital.

Uncle Marty, you were a great role model. Growing up, you showed me what an uncle should be. You were a jokester who gave me a bra made from baskets, you were always ready to play wiffle ball or kick the can. You showed me how to treat my parents by treating grandma and grandpa with respect and kindness. You made an impact on me and I will always treasure you. Love you to heaven and back.

I have such fond memories of time spent with Marty during our high school years. He was a special friend, a very hard worker and always available for time to have fun. I loved the old car he managed to keep running somehow. We will certainly enjoy our eternity together because of our Savior's love for us.

Marty became a very good friend and I was lucky to have known him. We spent time daily during our off time sitting around a table and gabbing about life. He was a great guy and will be missed. Prayers from my home for the family.
