    I worked with Marty back in the 70's at a car dealership in Frankfort and my wife, Sandy Schultz, worked with Marty for several years when he was at Yanson Chevrolet.  He was always a delight to be around.  He was a very sharp automobile man, and always the impeccible dresser.  Only now, do I realize how long ago it was that I was around Marty.  Our deepest sympathies to the family.
