Marty graduated from Elmira Free Academy in 1941, where he was captain of the track team and an outstanding pole-vaulter. In later years, he was inducted into the EFA Track Hall of Fame. He attended Syracuse University and graduated from the University of Maryland School of Dentistry. He served in the U.S. Navy Dental Corps during World War II and the Korean War. Marty began a 49 year dental career in Elmira, NY, where he and Louise raised their family. Marty possessed a wonderful sense of humor, quick wit, and a genuine care and concern for his family, patients, and friends. He was also a dedicated civic leader who gave back to his community. He served as President of the Chemung County Dental Society and Vice President of the Elmira YMCA, where he was awarded the Layman's Award for his dedicated service.

He was a member of Fur, Fin, and Feather and had served on the Board of Directors as well. Marty loved the outdoors and often hunted for pheasants on his grandfather's farm in Reading Center, NY and enjoyed fishing for trout in Catherine Creek and Seneca Lake. He was an avid skier and taught each of his children how to ski. Marty enjoyed golfing, sailing, and was very proud of his beautiful flower gardens. Marty loved life and loved his family dearly. He will be remembered as a dedicated, loving husband, father, Pop Pop, and friend. A private family memorial service and reunion will be celebrated at Seneca Lake in the fall.
