L. Martin Courtney II, 92, passed into the everlasting arms of the Lord on February 15, 2010.
Marty’s warmth and sense of humor endeared him to many in his hometown of Toledo, Ohio and in the communities of La Canada and Fallbrook, Calif. where he spent the last 24 years of his life.
He will be especially remembered and missed at the Fallbrook Skilled Care Nursing Facility for his example of unfailing love and devotion to his wife, Madelyn. In spite of his own declining health he never gave up on loving and caring for her and was an inspiration to all.
Marty is survived by his wife, Madelyn; son, L. Martin Courtney III and his wife, Cherie; stepdaughter Madelyn Goble and her husband, Rick, and children, Carolyn, Gregory, and Jessica; and stepson John Randolph.
Marty’s 92 years were lived in faithful obedience to the Lord’s command to “be of good cheer” and if you hear angels laughing, it’s likely they’ve just been treated to Marty’s latest pun.
A memorial service will be held at the Fallbrook Skilled Care Nursing Facility, 325 Potter St., on Friday, February 26, at 10 a.m.
