Marty was a neighbor on my street from elementary through high school. When I think of puppy love, I think of Marty who invited me to his parents' country club for a "splash party" when I was 9 years old.

He was a sweet guy but also pretty mischievous too. Once, he walked me home from school as we got off the bus from Taylor Elementary and asked me to sing "Yankee Doodle", putting the letter "f" before every word. When I came to the word "stuck", I learned the "f" word at the age of 9. What a character!

I heard that Marty became a jockey, and I so wish that I could have seen him in action in FLA. I love to go to the Santa Anita race track just to follow the horses here in SOCAL, meet friends who know the jockeys and bugler there.  

Hope you're having the time of your next life with your favorite horses, Marty. May your memory be a blessing!

I remember Marty from gym class. He was tiny and he was quite a jock. He had his troubles because we hadn't progressed much socially then. Even then he was apprenticing to be a horse jockey a sport for brave men. I hope he found himself and got what he wanted. Sorry to see him gone.

Marty and I were friends for a long time. We were always seen as the "MUTT AND JEFF" duo with Marty being a future racehorse jockey and me being a future basketball player. I often slept over his house so I could help him with his early morning paper route delivery. He had a great sense of humor and loved getting into trouble in his own cute little innocent way.  I have very fond memories of him.

Marty's parents and mine were best friends, in fact I always grew up calling them Aunt & Uncle.   Marty & I did just about everything together from as early as I can remember as kindergarten.   We grew up together best friends, and lost contact mid way in our lives.   I remember having lots of fun with Marty and his love for horses.   He was the only person I ever knew that loved animals as much as he did.  Marty was one of the dearest, sweetest, kindest, fun loving persons I knew, and I will always have fond memories of those days with him and our families.  I know he's in the "eternal" winners circle.  RIP Marty.
