I didn't know him personally but would see his photo ops on various facebook pages. Always enjoyed checking them out.
It's crazy to think that he just was at the Chiller show (I saw his op with Perfect Strangers) and just a few days later...
I wonder what must have been going through his mind in those last few days. Did he have anything planned or was it spur of the moment? And if planned what must he been thinking during the convention? One last fun day of photo ops?

Does any one what exactly he did?
Sorry if it offends, I'm just slightly curious.
Like 2-3 days before he died he was at the Hollywood Show in LA having the time of his life. This was a week after Chiller.

This was his second to last FB update, likely at his work. May 2 at 12:44am. And I quote:
I can't take what is going on at this toxic job anymore. Nothing is going to change.

I either have to quit, or it is going to kill me.

His last ever FB status update, May 2 at 6:30am. And I quote:
I am tired of fighting a losing battle. I am not fighting it anymore.

I saw something posted on facebook by someone name "Kris" who may be a celebrity but I've never heard of him. He posted that with how much money Martin spent and how many celebrities he met, he should be working in the entertainment field. I'm thinking the same could be said for a lot of you guys! Maybe meeting multiple celebs is more enjoyable than, say, working with one or two but seriously, you guys should be working in this field you devote so much time to. The Kris post was such a touching tribute.
:maybe:

Interesting concept but doubt they'd hire any of us.

I didn't see the Hollywood pics or if I did maybe just figured it was Chiller.
So sad.

Don't be so sure. Maybe not all of the board members could get a job but maybe a handful could be brought on as knowledgable and trustworthy hands.

Steve, did you see the facebook posts from people who were invited into Robert DeNiro's set trailer and got perfect photo ops and autographs...???

Saw those Robert shots. Couldn't believe it. Though at least one was invalid

Just for the hell of it I looked up where Martin lived and he straight up lived in the ghetto(West Baltimore) ...not a good area at all. Life could not have been easy there for him and between that and his job I can see why cons were his only escape.

Didnt even think about where he might be living. If the area was that bad, perhaps less cumbos and improving of living conditions might have changed things.

I know at one point he actually re financed his house so that the mortgage would be less. More years added but less monthly payment. This way he'd have more money to go to cons.

He would travel all over for cons. Think what joresky used to do for bus trips he used to fly. Then they cut his work hours so he limited his flying to Hollywood show in LA.

This is Martin's sister please don't comment on something you know nothing about. He lived where he wanted to live that was his choose. While I appreciate everyone's kind comments I don't appreciate the negative ones. Martin was a great brother and friend to many people. He did what he loved up until the day he left us. RIP little brother ❤️

People love to put their 2 cents in on things they truly have no clue about. The first time I spoke with Martin was at this past Chiller, but I am very
sorry for your loss.

Was there a memorial service for Martin ? Was there an obit published in a local paper ? I've looked on-line and I can't find any information.
