  3. What wonderful words your kids put together for you! I miss you Uncle Mart! I will always cherish the times we spent together – from our late night games of pool or ping-pong to me tagging along with you at the flea market or throwing newspapers those are some of my greatest of memories of you. Wishing you all the best buddy.

  4. I’m so very sorry to hear the passing, although I never knew Marty. I work with Jason, and Jason is a honor to work with, no one is better. Marty is at Peace in Heaven, ALWAYS remembered, and my personal favorite saying, “Remember me with smiles and laughter, for that’s how I’ll remember you all, if you can only remember me with tears, then don’t remember me at all”.

  5. Marty, you were always so gentle and kind, teasing (lots of teasing), telling stories and laughing. You will be missed by your family and friends. I’ll be praying for your children to find peace.

  6. Marty was a wonderful person he will be truly missed. But now his Spirit soars up there in heaven. Now Danny and Daryl and Marty and Ann are all up there together having a hell of a time the best of us are gone. I’ll think of you fondly. Give Danny a big hug and kiss for me.R.I.P.Marty Bixler my buddy.
