On January 29, 2011 he married Kelly McBride.
Marty worked for E.C. Styberg Engineering for over 42 years. He loved his job but enjoyed his free time even more. He was an avid biker and enjoyed his Harley. He loved to root for his favorite teams like the Cubs and Packers. He enjoyed fishing, grilling, bowling, skydiving, horseshoes, traveling, sailing and charter fishing, with his friends. However, he was happiest when in the company of his family, friends and especially his many pets.

Marty was also preceded in death by his best friend and brother-in-law, Shawn McBride.
