I knew Marty when he lived in Freehold. We spent many years together along with a lot of mutual friends enjoying the summers in Asbury Park. He was always full of fun. He will be missed.
Marty, I surely will miss our 55 years of friendship.
Marty you were my neighbor and my friend. I always admired your sweet nature and friendliness. You were kind to everyone, but it was your kindness to animals that touched my heart. I remember how you would put out Cheerios for the chipmunks and rabbits. RIP my friend. I only knew you for a brief period, but you will be missed and remembered fondly. Sandy Walker
