It was an honour knowing Marty through my mother Annette Naiman, his friend for the last four years. We met several times, on his visits to Toronto and in Florida, most recently in February of this year.
I will always remember Marty as a gracious, sweet, kind and thoughtful man ~ a true gentleman. He was a wonderful companion for my mother and they had many good times together.
Please accept my profound sympathy.
