Guestbook

  1. Together we worship and thank the Lord for the gift of Marty. The Lord received and continues to receive Marty’s gifts -> “Lights of souls that came into a deeper relationship with Jesus because of Marty’s example and love of Jesus. ” Alleluia, praise the Lord!

  2. When I first started in the DPD Crime lab, Marty took me all over Denver describing the crimes he had investigated in detail, every alley, shadowy lane, or warehouse. He was great to be with, always laughing and happy with where he was. A real artist of the human condition.
    My condolences to his family.

  3. My thoughts and prayers are with Marty’s family. My husband passed in 2017, but we knew Marty through his photography, his work with the Colorado
    Council of Camera Clubs and he judged many times at our club, the Denver Photographic Society. Marty was always friendly and helpful and just a joy
    to be around. He will be missed by so many.

  4. Oh we are so sad that we are just seeing this. Our deepest condolences to Judy and the rest of the family. Marty was always the kindest man when he came in to our shop.

  5. I am so sorry to see this. My sincere sympathy to you Judy, and family. Marty was always so upbeat and cheerful and one of the kindest men I have known. He was a very talented photographer and artist and I always admired him so much as an artist as well as a person. He was the one person I admired and missed most from my years with the Aurora Artists Guild.
