Marty was an architectural engineer who was fundamental in the execution of many major construction projects, primarily in Western New York. 

He was also a history and trivia aficionado who loved sharing his appreciation of military aircraft and history with his loved ones. 

Marty made incredible homemade bread, buffalo-style chicken wings, and barbeque ribs. He loved talking politics, cracking jokes, being a stickler for game rules, loading the dishwasher just right, and turning his backyard into Shangri-la. 

He will be truly missed by his loved ones.
