Marty and RaeLynn are the first people I met when I began attending Nixa Band competitions. Marty had the sweetest, kindest spirit about him. He always had a smile on his face and was willing to help when needed. I dreaded the end of band season because I knew life would swallow us all up and we wouldn't get to see each other again until the next season. Scott and I appreciated everything Marty & RaeLynn did to make the season fun. RaeLynn brought the cookies and boosted Scott's ego about how "purty" his truck was and Marty could ALWAYS be counted on to help any way he could with a few jokes along the way. Our hearts go out for the loss of such a wonderful father, husband and friend.

Marty was a caring and fair man. He made all those around him better. Marty mentored many people and helped shape many careers. He had a great zest for life, a great smile and laugh. Marty was a credit to the great state of Minnesota and the Iron Range. Marty, love to you and your family.
