We were surprised and saddened by the passing of Martin. It was a joy and privilege to get to know Martin as a driver for Homebound Meals. He always had a smile and a thank you. We will miss our good visits at the end of our route.

Let me add to the accolades. Best teacher, hands down, at Lakeside Jr. High in 1963. A memorable line from his classroom was, \\\"This is an English class, and as long as we speak English, we can talk about anything you like.\\\" Very progressive and engaging. I took guitar lessons from him some years later, and saw him play El Gallo in \\\"The Fantastics\\\" downtown. What a guy. Rest in Peace, Mr. T.

I fondly think of Mr. Tierney often, hands down my favorite teacher at Dwenger. Loved this man for how kind he was to me and because he believed I could sing. A teacher who truly cared about you and not just because it was his job. Thank you for always making me feel special. God bless you Mr. Tierney ??
