Martin was a proud United States Marine veteran who devoted his life to working. At a young age he started collision work and eventually opened up his own shop in the buffalo area where he grew up. Marty moved to Darien in his 20s where he spent many years as an EMT at the Darien fire department, he held many positions and eventually became chief. He then went on to be a correctional officer and after dedicating 27 years he retired from Attica State Correctional facility. When Marty was in his late 40s, he moved to Attica where he resided the rest of his life. He liked to do his own handy-man work and in the early 2000s he and his wife remodeled the home and built a 2-car garage. Marty spent his free time with friends and family. He enjoyed going out to eat, vacations, going for a drive to jam out with his daughter Taylor, doing work around the house and being outside, going to different casinos with his wife Barb, but Marty most loved spending time with his “pride and joy” Taylor.
