On Thursday, Sept.22, 2022, in the very early hours of the morning, God called and needed someone very special to help out in heaven.

Upon arrival, Hattie and Dean Lorance, Marty’s beloved parents, father-in-law Larry Marshall, and mother-in-law Nancy Marshall Metz were there to greetContinue Reading

This news hurts my heart. Marty was such a good friend to my family, especially my brother. He went out of his way to help others. I always enjoyed calling him to order gravel because we would end up talking about everything but business and the call always ended in a good laugh about something. Marty had a heart of gold and will be truly missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Melanie, Karyn and I were so sorry to hear of Marty's passing. He hauled a lot of gravel for me and I always enjoyed talking with him when I called in. We could never have a short conversation, we thought a lot alike! What a fun guy to play golf with. Marty will be missed by all who crossed paths!

Paula and I send our prayers and condolences for you and the family. He was such a good person to get to know and to be around. I loved playing golf in his group and serving on the board with him. I will miss his humor and smile.

Melanie and Claire, my sister (Cheryl) and I are so sorry to hear of your loss. May Jesus comfort you during this time and in time heal your loss. Marty and I have played many softball games together over the years and had lots of fun in between games and tournaments. Marty will be greatly missed, and not forgotten.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Marty was such a good friend, classmate, and fellow Galloway kid as we were growing up. He could always make me laugh. It was fun to see him at the class reunions and reminisce about school, growing up, other Galloway friends and all the wiffle ball games we played in my front yard. My condolences to Melanie and the family.

I will always cherish the time you spent with myself and the Twin Oaks Golf Pro's at the Club-Car event at Silo Ridge! What a fantastic time we had watching you stripe it down the middle and bailing us out all day! Great stories, great friend and Member. You will be missed! "Play well Prez" Rich

Sad. I coached Marty in slow pitch softball. The team was over half State Troopers. They were always asking ,Marty if he wanted to confess to anything. Everyone on the team liked Marty. He'd play tricks on everyone including me. He was such a joy to be with. We became friends and I'd see him on the road in his truck waving and smiling. He was a very good athlete . Marty will be missed. What a good guy. Bill Tandy
