Our prayers and condolences extended to the family during a difficult time. What a kind and loving father, and family setting 'Marty' created. I know this because I went to school with son, Gene. What a genuinely kind,ever concerned, and sweet spirited gentleman. He chose a gorgeous wife of the same nature!! Both- gently equipped with tender,quick wit, Both- a pleasure to know!!

To the Hochberg Family: My heartfelt sympathy goes out to you all. Your father was one of the most caring, passionate persson I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. There are many fond memories of him, Armand, Jack Lubeznik and my Grandfather Nate gathering at his home and betting on their football games on Sundays. Marty was a very funny person with the greatest sense of humor. I will miss him. I feel honored to have known Marty for many years. May his memory be a blessing to all that were fortunate in knowing him. He is now with those he loved and loved him and is now at peace with your dear mother Edie, whom he expressed is deep love and devotion. Rest well my friend and until we see each other again may everyone feel the light you shine in their lives.

Dear Diane,Bruce and Gene, I am truly sad to hear that Marty passed. I really felt apart of your family,and enjoyed many days @ your house tanning and playing cards. There was a lot of laughter in your home and I miss Edie and Rose,Nana too. I appreciated all the interest your dad took in my dad..setting up pool dates and making sure he swam. Your dad ocassionally took me aside,and clued me in when I needed it. He was an honest and caring dad and I was impressed that he would go in the prisons and carry a message of hope...which many people wouldn't dare do. I'll miss you Marty...he had a nickname for me...I think squirt..Until we see again. Love you!
