I will never forget the many years of triathlon competition I shared with Marty. Hours in the pool with the Master’s team at the downtown YMCA — and of course swimming across the Chesapeake Bay. He was an outstanding person and I will miss him dearly.
I met Marty about 5-6 years ago and we met in front of the USX Tower on a beautiful summer day to discuss business. I worked for Tektronix at the time and now I work for Xerox. Marty was interested in selling our Tektronix network color printers as a part of his business. I was shocked to see his picture in the obituaries. The short and brief time I knew Marty was a pleasure. May God rest his soul and best wishes to his family.
I haven’t seen Marty since I worked at PSI roughly 4 years ago. I always liked Marty and his passing was quite a shock to me. I’m sorry to hear that passed away,
Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Plummer Slade staff in this time of need.
