Asking God to give you the comfort only He can give. He speaks to renew our faith, offers His love to cover our pain, and give us grace to help us through.
We were privileged to get to know Marty through the past 40+ years of attending New Hope Church together. He was a servant of Christ, and also helpful to his church friends. Marty dedicated a lot of his time in making our church grounds beautiful and helping our church grow in number and in faith. He will be truly missed by us!

Lynne and family, so so sorry for your loss. Marty always seemed to have a smile and something ornery to say when I would see him. what an amazing family. My dad said one of the best golf games he ever played was when Mary was his partner. He will be deeply missed. Prayers to the family.

I was so sad to hear of Marty's passing. I've been a customer of Roembke Mfg. for many years and have wonderful memories of working with Marty. His sense of humor and laugh were the greatest. He was always extremely helpful and when I was a young engineer I learned a lot from him. I've always appreciated having known him. My prayers are with his family.

So sorry to hear about Marty. He was one of the nicest guys I ever knew. Just before we were to move, he wanted to know all about it. The community has lost a great person. So sad.

Lynne and Family. Sorry to hear about Marty. I remember him playing ball in high school and then he was one of the 'big guys' at the Shell Station when we hung out there. Always seemed to enjoy life. Too soon to go. RIP!
