There were many community groups that he was involved with. He dressed up like Santa for children at Christmas, was a mentor to many people in Central New York, and volunteered a helping hand in whatever had to be done. Marty was devoted to his wife, daughters, and extended family, and would include them in his many adventures through life. He had a very active lifestyle, never stayed still for long, and was always up for a good card game.
