Marty worked for Kodak from 1979-2003 and then relocated to Denver where he enjoyed the big city and all it had to offer.
He loved gardening, especially flowers, and was a three-time Grand Champion winner at the Weld County Fair where he participated from 1987-2003. His favorites were dinner plate dahlias and stargazer lilies.
Marty was an avid runner, participating in marathons, attending Elton John concerts (attending his last concert in February 2019), watching the Denver Broncos and decorating his home for the seasons, especially lighting up his house at Christmas. He also loved watching the Golden Girls and Star Trek. His fondest memory was getting the chance to see William Shatner at an event in Denver.
