Martin loved the outdoors, music and putting a smile on someone else's face. He was fascinated with extreme sports and was particularly talented in skiing and soccer. He loved having fun, traveling, experiencing new things and driving turbo engine VWs. He had a talent for fixing things, a quick master of any new device. Friends enjoyed his inspired meals, his sense of humor and his sensitivity to others.
His presence and his smiling face will be sorely missed. We look forward to seeing him again strong and healthy enjoying eternal life in Christ.
