Linda...sorry to learn about Marty's passing. In recent years we worked together. He always had a gentle word...kind heart...and a pleasant sense of humor. He will be missed by all who knew him. .

Linda and family, We are so sorry to hear of Marty's passing. We had many great experiences over the years as our kids grew up together. Marty was a great husband, father and friend to us all. He will be greatly missed. We hope the great memories you have of him will be some comfort as we all mourn his passing.

Linda, Greg, Pete, and Eric., Our hearts go out to you as you navigate your way through this most difficult time. While I never got to know Marty as well as most that honored him this morning, there were still some defining memories that will stay with me for which was just this past week: While we never spoke openly about it, I had a very real sense that Marty and I shared a bond of competing to see which of us could spoil Eric and Laurie's kids the most. Up until last week, I felt I was edging ahead, with the advantage of having some serious one on one time with the kids in the relative isolation of north central Pennsylvania. Then it happened, one fell swoop, Marty took an unrelenting lead in the contest. and created a memory that I will never forget, Marty not only retrieved Theos fishing line that I threw into a tree 15 feet offshore but he then gave Isabel the jacket off of his back to fend off the cold wind...and then, the defining point of taking the lead, as Theo sensed Isabel getting special treatment, Marty turned to him and gave him the shirt off of his back. I saw the writing on the wall, Marty had taken an unrelinquished lead in the contest, he then introduced the kids to hot fudge sundaes (light on the fudge) to seal the victory...all in the matter of a few hours...I had been bested by the Master. That day, above all else will define what I will remember about Marty...his love of his family, and his unconditional love of his grand kids...all of them..I will certainly miss Marty, but the love and caring that you, and your extended families share will always remind me if his legacy...and of the good and caring man that he was.

Linda and family, I will miss working with Marty. I will miss our phone calls regarding how everyone is doing. He remembered my birthday because I share it with one of his grand son's. He was a beloved, humble guy, co-worker and friend.

By Janie Katz - June 17, 2020

Dear Linda and Wolf-Sloan Families, I was shocked to read of the passing of your beloved husband, father and brother-in-law. I also know not as half as shocked as you were/are. The first time and regrettably the last time I met him with you was at temple in Pittsburgh about 2 yrs ago. It was very uplifting and heartwarming to see you together. I left with the impression he was a warm, kind and physically healthy man. The results we know only come from a happy and healthy loving marriage and family. He was truly blessed to have your love in his life and his love showed for you in return. A man you will all treasure and keep close to your heart forever. May he rest eternally in peace. If you need anything, shiva food delivered or just someone to reach out to by phone, Leslie and Linda at temple know how to reach me as well as the Chapel. Hang in there and know there are many of us are relieved and thankful the rest of you in his family are still alive.

By Beth Paransky - June 17, 2020

Dear Linda.. The shock of Marty’s passing is something that will haunt us all, most of all you and your family. Marty was that person that made us all feel comfortable, had a great joke, and an empathic nature. We have all known each other since we were barely adults and to even acknowledge this tragedy is not fair! I am thinking of you and know that your friends and family will be there for you. Fondly - Sheri and Wally
