Donna, Just heard the news of Marty’s passing, and so sorry to hear this. He and my Dad were so close for so many years, he would speak of him often and thought of you and Marty as family. You were at all our family celebrations from the time they met. They were true buddies. Leni and I wish you peace, and our thoughts are with you and your family. Al and Leni Rayburn

I was deeply saddened to hear of Marty's passing. He was such a lovely man. I appreciated his ethics and his hard work. He always had a smile. Thinking of his family and friends at this difficult time.

Marty, I’m glad I took that job in the studio that my dad told me I probably wouldn’t like (and to go with the job at Super Duper because it would be more social than working in a small office). I was 16 and you gave me a raise after 2 days and I only left 10 years later to become a mom to my first child. I’m still waiting for the keys to the company car. I have such joy in my heart when I think of you and what a significant and meaningful life you not only lived, but shared with others. I hope your Great Reward tops it all. Much love and peace.

Jason, you describe your father as a storyteller, among many other admirable traits. As I read about your dad and listened from his dear friends and family today, I heard so much that reminded me of you. You, too, are a storyteller - that is what makes you such an outstanding and trusted advisor and leader. Your love of baseball, fishing, and family are clear reflections of your father's influence. But what has made the most enduring impression on me is your sense of humor. No matter the situation, and without patronizing or diminishing, you have the keen ability to tease out the amusing, ironic, absurd, silly, nonsensical, and down right hysterical. I have never left one of our "Shabbat talks" without a smile on my face. This talent, which your father clearly modeled, has and will continue to serve you well. Jerry Seinfeld said, "The greatest Jewish tradition is to laugh. The cornerstone of Jewish survival has always been to find humor in life and in ourselves." May the memories of your father be filled with laughter, smiles, sweetness and love. And may his memory be for a blessing to you and the rest of your family and community.

Donna, We were so incredibly sorry to hear of Marty’s passing. He will always have a very special place in my heart. He photographed my Bat Mitzvah, my wedding, and my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah— and he went so above and beyond on my wedding day that I don’t know what I would have done without him. He was like family to so many in Rochester. May his memory be for a blessing. I will always remember him.

Donna, I am so sorry to hear of Marty’s passing. He was always so friendly and always with a smile on his face. I’m sure you are getting a lot of “He did my wedding and my daughters wedding”…add me to that list! My condolences to you and your family. Nancy Pulvino

Marty was one of the finest men I have ever known in my 74 years of living. Not only was he a wonderful conversationalist and positive influence on his world, but he was above all genuine. He lived what he believed, and he believed there was good in everyone. The whole world and especially our little portion of it, was diminished by his passing. May he sit by the right hand of The Almighty.

Donna my deepest sympathy!

I wanted to share that I remember Martin (Marty) for so many years at the Marriott Thruway taking photos of many many weddings. He was a wonderful man, photographer and colleague during the 90's. I always remember setting up a little table for him to be able to have his dinner during the wedding inside the ballroom so he could take pictures all throughout some one's special day! RIP Martin.

Marty did a wonderful job at our wedding and when I was younger I held lights for him. He was a very dear man and we reminisced quite a bit at the JCC Men’s health club. Our sincerest condolences to the family. Paul & Peg Friedman
