Damien and Family, I was saddened to hear about Marty. Although I had not seen him in years I have fond memories of him when we were all young. I did see him several years ago when my husband and I were visiting Clearfield. He was riding his bicycle through the parking lot of St. Francis Church. We were home visiting my mother who lived at the time in the house on the corner of Front and Walnut Street. May God Bless and watch over all of you during this time. Nancy (Woolridge) Auten

Well there goes a big part off my history. I met Marty when I was 18. He and Jonas were renovating a small house on Cape Cod that my friend and I wound up renting. For years after, I might not see him for 3 weeks, 3 months, a year, but I would have a dream....I'd wake up, feeling anxious, unsettled.....And I'd say, you watch, Marty will show up today, and like clockwork, he'd be on my door step when I got home. He was the source of happiness and heartache in equal parts, but I wouldn't trade that time for anything. He taught me a lot. I'm also lucky to still be here, some of the stupid things I did because he dared me, or to prove I wasn't the fluffy girl he thought I was. He called me Girl. I took a bus to Clearfield to find his Roots! I loved Mrs. Marino, such a lovely woman, and I wish I hadn't lost touch with Nancy. I think I thought he would live forever. He could be a royal pain in the ass, but one of my favorite people in the world. On Sunday, driving home from our Maine vacation, he passed through my mind. I wondered if there would be a post card from him, or a message, but I guess it Marty saying, I'm outta here. He was always here and gone tomorrow. Love from Jan E., it was a wild ride!

Damien; So sorry to hear about Marty. Even though it has been 51 years, I can still see his smile and hear his witty comments. Best to you and other family members during this time. Gregg Kitchen

Damian and family....Marty was a dear friend from high school, who sadly I had not seen since. Interesting is that this past winter while going through a box of personal memorabilia I came across a tie tack he made for me over 50 years ago. I was not holding my breath, but hoping he would show up at our class reunion last September so we could bring out the ascots and revive our rendition of "Barbara Ann". Oh well my friend we'll just have to save it for another time. My deepest sympathies and warmest regards.

Damien, Our deepest sympathies to you and your family. Possibly one day as we gaze into the clouds we will see him floating by on his bicycle with his biggest grin ever. May he rest in peace and God help you through your sorrow.
