My condolences to Marty’s brother David, his sister Lynda, his many nieces, nephews, also his companion Dolores, on the passing of my friend Marty. I first met Marty thru my cousin Jimmy Amerault after I was discharged from the US Army in 1965. Marty was my best man at my wedding three years later in 1968. He was the God Father of my first born son Christopher.
We both worked for and retired from Polaroid. I know the past few years were very difficult for Marty, his health had handed him many challenges throughout his life. It was cancer that took him away from us. I have known Marty for fifty-one years. I will miss visiting with him when we come back home to Medford from our current home in Las Vegas. May you finally find the peace that you deserve.
