Marty had a life-long passion for photography and enjoyed sharing his photos with family and friends. He loved fishing and the outdoors. He spent many hours volunteering and helping others less fortunate. He attended the Broad Street United Methodist Church and volunteered at their soup kitchen at the homeless shelter. He knew and accepted the Lord as his Savior. He is survived by a daughter, Robin Lantz (Josh) of Toledo, OH, a son, Anthony Pardo of Defiance, OH, and by grand-daughter, Adena Lantz, Toldeo, OH.

He was preceded in death by his grand-parents, Howard and Evelyn Davis and by Juan and Antonia Pardo. A private memorial service will be held in Punta Gorda, Florida at a later date.
