Your racing today Mitch! God speed!
Craig Brandt says
I met Marty when my parents built a cabin near his parents farm, and got to know the family. Good people.
I later worked with Marty at the motorcycle shop and became friends.
God’s speed Mitch!

I just found out my cousin had died yesterday. Marty was a great guy and I always respected his service to USA and all the interesting things he was involved in. I know he was a pilot, and Mark and I use to ride his Yamaha dirt bike on the track in rural Albia. So many memorable times at the Mitchell’s farm. God Speed Cousin Marty! You will be missed.
