Marty was a great guy and loved to laugh. We were Berkley buddies, neighbors on Sunnyknoll, played ball and hockey at Community Field and went through LaSalette together and on to Shrine.

I'm sorry we drifted apart but glad we met about 10 years ago and had a great time recalling great days in the neighborhood and at LaSalette and Shrine. Our course we broke our promise to "keep in touch.”

I'm heartbroken to read of his passing on the reunion page (and for all our dear deceased classmates).

RIP Marty

Mary, nice memories of our homework collaborations, including a term paper which got an A for content and D for typing and grammar! Strange I ended up a newspaper editor in Capac, MI just 11 years later. LOL!
