I am sorry for your loss. While rejoicing that Mr Goldberg is in heaven with God, I hope that you feel the loving comfort and peace from God in this time of grief and sorrow as you learn to live your “new normal” as life goes on with him. Prayers for you all.

It is with sadness that I learned of Marty's passing. I will say a pray of remembrance for him and his family. He had a very positive influence on everyone who came in contact with him with his infectious laugh and grin. He will be missed, but not forgotten. Rest in Peace my friend.

I had the great opportunity to know and work with Marty the past years. Marty was an intelligent, kind and jovial person who people liked being around. I will miss him during the track season when we officiated track meets. RIP Marty

Marty was a special person. We were classmates at Allegheny. He was a New Yorker all the way. I was so pleased when he came back and lived much of his life at Allegheny. I truly enjoyed every moment with such a positive and upbeat guy. There is no other who treasured Allegheny like Marty. Deepest sympathy to Rita and Arleene.
