Marty was a very hard worker. He was very handy: He converted the heating system to make the house one of the first all-electric houses in the area, remodeled the basement, added an addition to the back of the house and built a garage in the backyard. Marty was an avid golfer and member of the Bethlehem Steel Club starting in 1960. Along with his collection of golf trophies, he has, to his credit, a Hole-In-One on hole #4 at the Steel Club.
