Was saddened to hear another beautiful soul has passed. Picturing Marty and Ed sitting close, cigars and sambuca with a bean- toasting life with a big smile. Always looked forward to seeing him, as business trips became a family gathering when he was present. His stories, his humour, his honesty- will be missed. Remembering ski trips and Gretals amazing cooking. Remembering a business trip to the kansas factory- him chuckling as I walked in heels and a hard hat thru a steel yard . Remembering the way he became “foodie” host to only the best restaurants in every city. Remembering him and Ed exchanging jokes and jabs on the golf course. Loved this man very much.

Every year growing up I’d spend part of the summer with my Godparents in NY. My godmother is Tia Gretel’s sister Marcia. One summer though I spent with Tia Gretel and Uncle Marty. It was the summer of 1973 and they had just moved down to Florida. Uncle Marty already new so many people and things to do. I remember him taking me to Steak n Shake in his Olds Delta 88. They even bought me a bike so that I could play with the other kids in the neighborhood. It was quite the summer. I think people got sick of me talking about the fun I had. Years later they came to California and were in LA for a night. I took them to a restaurant called Houston’s. It was a Saturday night and we didn’t have reservations. But somehow Unlce Marty turned on his charm and pretty soon we had the staff gladly getting us whatever we wanted. I thought to myself, “How’d he do that?!?” But that was his gift. We were lucky to share in it. Love to all of you!

7/1/18 Gretel, Michelle & Marianne: So sorry to hear of your great loss. Please know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers as you go forward on your grief journey. It is NEVER easy when a loved one passes away, but they will ALWAYS be with you in your heart and memories of times you shared. Marty and I were like brother and sister they many years I worked for him (believe it was 13 yrs ?). We'd fight over the thermostat on the A/C, being a few minutes late for work, and when I talked back to him.....he'd let me know. He was a good man and very intelligent.
Again, I'm sorry you will be experiencing this pain. Hopefully, I will see you on both visitation night and the services on Friday, but for sure Thursday I will attend.
Love, Diana Reams
