Marty had such a great spirit and was such a smart, sweet and fun guy of the 10 years I've been with Daymon. He will be missed terribly.

Dear Tiffany, Marty was a great guy and a better friend. I can still remember how excited and happy he was on the night he met you. I wish I had kept more in touch over the last few years (we both kept trying to make plans to touch base, and assumed time was not an issue). I can only remember that classic Marty smile while he was trying to make me laugh, or while he was helping me in some way. I don’t think I ever saw him in a bad mood, and he was always trying to bring everyone else up to his level of happiness.

To Tiffany and the Steeves family, I feel so lucky to have known Marty and am incredibly sorry for your loss. Marty and I met during the interview process at Caldor. He was a one-of-a-kind friend who will be missed by everyone. He was selfless with his time- always helping those in need. And, he was incredibly generous with his insightful wisdom on nearly every topic. Without a doubt, he was one of the funniest people I've ever met. I'll never forget him. My deepest condolences are sent to you. Ruth

To Tiffany and the Steeves Family, Although Tiffany I've never gotten the pleasure of meeting you but I feel like I've known you through Marty. He's talked so much about you and was so happy with you. I've gotten to know him through Right Management, he always brighten up the place when he showed up. I always looked forward to seeing him. He was a one of a kind person, a special person and I truly believe he's in heaven for all the good he's done. I was on vacation and just returned to work today (Tuesday) and found out otherwise I would have been there last night. I am so sorry Tiffany, I'll never forget him.

To Tiffany & the Steeves family. Rose and I are sorry for your loss. At this time there are no words that can be said to take away the pain you feel. May God bless you and comfort you during this difficult time. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Marty, you were one of a kind. You touched the lives of many and brought them together. I am so grateful I got the chance to be part of your life. Although I am extremely sad that you are gone from this life I know God had a reason to take you. It must have been a job he was saving for you. God took a good man and you'll do good work for him. I'll miss you my friend. I'll always cherish the times we had together. I look forward to seeing you again someday. Take care Marty. Kevin & Rose DiMattio
