Posted Condolences:


  1. Sad to hear this news. Great memories of working with Larry in the summer of ’77. While I didn’t know your dad well, he always seemed like a genuine class act and I know my parents felt that way. My condolences to all family and friends.

  2. I am sorry to hear about Marty’s passing. Marty was such a nice man. He was a valued leader in our little church. I remember walking to school past the Chevy car dealership and occasionally waving to Marty as he was working. I was always happy when on my return visits to New Rockford I had a chance to visit with Marty and Eloise. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

  3. So sorry for your loss – Marty was truly one of a kind and will certainly be missed! He was a dear dear friend of my Grandpa (Richard Klemin) and memories of Grandpa usually include time at the Legion or BR Chevy and Marty was ALWAYS a wonderful part of that and as we grew up, he always had a warm smile, chuckles, kind words and best wishes for whatever we were doing, genuinely interested. Nice, nice man!!
