Obituary: Martin A. Olsen Jr.

Friday, 29 January 2010 10:41
Martin A. Olsen Jr., 46, passed away at his home on Dec. 23, 2009, surrounded by his family and his dogs. Marty was born on Aug. 8, 1963, in New York City, and grew up in Sands Point. From this point, Marty went on to live his days more full of life, or perhaps larger than life, than most we know. There is so much that he did in one lifetime, but what was most poignant is how he did it, with a beaming smile and kindness in his heart. The louder his bark, the greater care and passion he had for the people around him. Whether sky-diving, ski patrolling, or sailing, Marty was always a boisterous, take-charge, loving helper and teacher.
