Man, this has been a bad January. Poor Denise has had some many obituaries lately she can hardly fit them in. And, again, Marty was around my age and therefore only a kid!

Must be the father of the Marty Lemelin I know. Or I'm a whole lot older than I thought.

He will be greatly missed. He was a really nice guy and we were lucky to have him as a neighbor. Our deepest sympathies and condolences to the family.

I had Marty as a teacher at MCC back in '94 and '95 and I'm sure one of things that will be missed most will be his heartfelt laugh. Any teacher there would tell you, they knew when Marty got to the school in the morning, because at some point you'd hear him laughing in his office or whomever's office he was sharing a joke with at the time.

As a kid, I always kind of thought it unfair for someone to be that happy first thing in the morning (ie, Ed Mayberry) but know understand it's one of the sure fire things to keep you young at heart. And when nothing else is working, remember the K.I.S.S theory!

You will be missed Marty

I to had Martin as a teacher in 93, and 94 he was a great guy. Chris remembered the kiss principal but what about if you assume you make as ass out of you and me.Also if you were in his class you were a Lemelin's gremlin.First thing in class was about a 30 minute b.s. session, and then what was on the news the night before.Then we got down to electronics, but if you wanted toget him off subject or task you asked him about the army air corp.service time he had.He was like George Burns delievered jokes just like him and his wifes name was Gracey.
