I have so many fond memories of my dear friend Marty and the many years we spent Thanksgiving together with my family. He truly became a part of our family. He loved my turkey stuffing and always said if I didn’t have my dressing he wasn’t coming to dinner. I treasure our trips to Hawaii and the three weeks I spent in Ireland meeting family , especially his dear mother and brother. He was one of a kind and such a good friend. I will miss him and my children and grandchildren who grew up knowing him will miss him as well. Thanksgiving will never be quite the same without him. We loved him and send our thoughts and prayers to his family. Linda

I met Martin in 1979 when we (among many others) were hired to staff the Rehab Medicine Dept. at the Hospital for Joint Diseases Orthopaedic Institute. It was a joy it was working with Martin over the years! He was smart, dedicated and had a great sense of humor. I am fortunate that we kept up after I left the hospital and he moved west. Although we lost touch in the recent years, I am very sad at his passing and extend my deepest sympathy to his family on their loss.
