I haven’t seen Marty since 1982 when I left Hibbing, MN. He was always the greatest guy. Happy and friendly to everyone. I can’t remember him finding fault with anything or anyone. God Bless you my friend, I am saddened to hear this. It’s been 30 years and I remember you fondlly! Rest in Peace…..
Marty, we will miss you. The press box at the NHC won’t be the same without you. Thanks for all the great memories.
Marty, I will miss you! My trip to St. Cloud will not be the same without seeing you and hearing your laugh! Journey well my friend! Slade
Marty-I’ll never forget the time I stumpped you with my school mascott. You never forgot after that. Tho I’ only knew you for a short time, I know what you meant to your friends to include my daughter Jen. They all looked forward to your being at a function. RIP Marty We’ll see you again!!
Soar high and free my friend. You will be missed by so many. You touched so many people in so many special ways. You will never be forgotten.
Too young, my friend. Too many years between us, my friend. Both make my heart heavy, my friend. Peace to you, Marty.
We will miss you good friend. Those “Only Game in Town” road trips you were on with us made for delightful fun and the miles fly by. Thanks for those wonderfully hilarious times. Rest well.
Mahty, you went away from us much too soon, but your memory will live forever in the hearts and minds of so many. When people met you, they were different from that point forward — always for the better. You were a loyal friend who lit up any room you entered. You were a true original that will be sorely missed by the hundreds of people whose lives you touched and the impact you. I can still hear your distinctive laugh and it makes me smile, even if my eyes are teared up. God gave me one brother. Meeting you gave me another. R.I.P., Mahty. The world has lost a shining light. Gone, but never forgotten.
Marty was my teacher for one quarter at MSB. I didn’t know him very long but I will remember his wonderful personality. He was a wonderful guy and teacher who could light up a room as he walked in. RIP Marty
Sad to hear. Always a good guy with a smile and a giggle. I’ll tell my boys a Marty story at dinner tonight. 1984 forever…
Rest in peace, Marty. You will always have a special place in my heart.
