I will miss seeing Marty on my very early morning walks around town. We grew up together, were classmates in school & he was one of my dearest childhood friends. We always shared a good laugh…& also shared the same kinda Lakehurst kids sense of humor. So hard to imagine Lakehurst without him. My deepest condolences to all family & friends. RIP MARTY…You will forever be missed. -Diane-💔🙏
