Marty was my boss at Baxter in the late 80's. He was more than a just a manager, he was a mentor. He led his team by example, with respect, with the highest expectations and with a laugh. He is also responsible for some of my most vivid memories.

The best example was 1987 when 5 of us were in Germany meeting with our supplier. This was still when there were two Germany's. We had finished our meetings and Marty smiles that smile and said "Road Trip! We're driving to West Berlin". Thus began the saga of driving 8 hours across East Germany, being chased by a Russian attack helicopter, discovering that Berlin was (and is) one of the most beautiful cities in the world and having one of the most exciting adventures in my life. Without Marty saying those two magic words "Road Trip" my life would never be the same.

He was a great man and will be sorely missed.

I was a young engineer working for Marty and Steve Wurgler. Marty was a great boss! Fun to be around, creative, and really smart. Loved history. I remember we used a large Viking sword to Christin our pilot plant in Round Lake. Wonderful person!

Its been about 60 years since I saw that face and YEP, that's Marty. We went to grade school together at St. Rose of Lima on the Southside of Chicago ... and played baseball between the slaughterhouses ... Cows, Pigs and Lambs. We competed in the Science classes - Marty built a robot named "Mort" and I diagramed U235 and U238 - Atomic Bomb components .. it was 6th grade and anything "goes" in 6th grade. More than a Scientist .. he played classical piano and mean "boogey-woogey" ... The Nuns were not too keen on that genre. In 7th Grade, Marty and I went to TONY PIET Pontiac on Western Ave and got 100 copies of a Civil Defense booklet on how to build a nuclear fallout shelter in your basement. The nuns were very impressed and passed it out to all the children in 6th, 7th and 8th grades. I'm smiling broadly now knowing Marty is entertaining all our friends who have passed up in Heaven right now. What a Great Guy !!!

To the best cousin ever! Seems like yesterday we made our communion together! You were the smart Sliva in first and second grade. Then we moved. No way could I have kept up with you! I know you're there with most of our family now. We will always love you and miss you. Rest In Peace.
