I'm so sad to hear this news. Marty was an amazing guy. He was a great friend during our time together at Smith's Furniture. My thoughts are with the family during this time.
May God bless you and your family and give you strength during your time of sorrow. So sorry for your loss.
My heart goes out to the family of one of the nicest person I have ever worked with. We all love him in Birmingham. May God give you all strength to carry on. My prayers are with you.
Sherry, I am so sorry to hear of Marty's passing. Marty, Bob Manteuffel, and I had so many great times running around together, back in the day. Marty helped me to get my first job at Kaelin's Restaurant. I also remember Oscar hiring us to do a job that ended up requiring the removal of the floor in the back of the house on Wendell Ave. I will try to come to the service.
I can say that I had the pleasure of working with Marty over the years, I never met him in person seeing that we worked in different states. I can truly say he was one of a kind. I great colleague, whom spoke of his family with great pride and love. I will miss hearing his voice on the other end of the phone working together at Havertys. My deepest condolences to his family and friends. May God cover you in His comfort and peace during your time of sorrow.

If we could have chosen the perfect husband and father for our daughter and their children, we couldn't have chosen anyone better than Marty. We loved him so much and will always miss him. The world has lost a sweet and funny man whose faith in God and love for his family were always obvious to anyone who knew him.
