Longtime St. Louis Cardinals front office executive Marty Hendin died Saturday night at the age of 59.

Hendin had worked for the team since 1973 in a variety of positions, including public relations, marketing and community relations.

"If you were a Cardinals fan over the past 35 years, there was a good chance that you had either met Marty or heard his name," Cardinals Chairman Bill DeWitt said in a statement released by the team Sunday morning. "He was friends with everyone from Hall of Famers to the casual fan. If you were a Cardinals fan, you were a friend of Marty. The entire Cardinals organization extends its sincere condolences to Marty's family and countless friends."

Hendin was active in many St. Louis charitable causes, including the team's Cardinals Care program.

"No one cared more for the Cardinals then Marty," Cardinals President Mark Lamping said. "He was an institution in the St. Louis community for many years and will be missed by his co-workers and by the thousands of Cardinals fans across the country who had the pleasure of knowing him."

Hendin is survived by his mother, Pearl; wife, Ronna Hendin; a son, Rob Hendin; daughter-in-law, Lauren Aronson and his sister, Linda Harber. Visitation will be held Tuesday, January 15 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at B'nai El Temple, 11411 North Outer 40 Dr, St Louis, MO 63131.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Marty Hendin Fund at B'nai El, Cardinals Care, March of Dimes and the Asthma & Allergy Foundation of St. Louis.
