GLENS FALLS — Martin ‘Marty’ ‘Tex’ Stockwell, 58, passed away on Saturday, April 29, 2017, at his home in Glens Falls.
Born on Jan. 14, 1959, in Glens Falls, he was the son of the Late Jack and Anna (Ireland) Stockwell.
Marty was a graduate of Hudson Falls High School.
Marty loved everyone and everyone loved Marty. You can remember him best by introducing himself to everyone he met ‘Hello, I’m Marty.’ You would see Marty walking all over Glens Falls, occasionally pushing a shopping cart full of empties that everyone would save for him. Marty walked fast, one minute you would see him at the west end of town at Walgreens, then just minutes later he would be over to the east side of town at Cooper Street Price Chopper sitting on the bench. He always made his daily trip to the post office to mail a letter and say hi to all the workers. Marty had a great memory, if he met you once he never forgot you and if he had seen you in weeks, months, or years later he always would go out of his way to say hi and call you by name. Marty will be dearly missed.
In addition to his parents, Marty was predeceased by his uncle, John Omiecinski; and his sister, Laura Kottman.
Survivors include his aunt, Helen Omiecinski of Hudson Falls, who raised him; his cousin, Carol Martin of Glens Falls, who was his caretaker and Nancy Martin of Hudson Falls who was like a sister to him; his brother, Gary Stockwell of Hudson Falls; his other brothers, Ronald (Beverly), Robert (Julie), and Jackie; his uncle, Robert (Anne) Stockwell of Hudson Falls; and several cousins and aunts.
A graveside service will take place at 11 a.m. Thursday, May 4 at the Moss Street cemetery in the town of Kingsbury with a celebration of life to follow the graveside service from 4 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, at the VFW on Cooper St. in Glens Falls.
Donations in Marty’s name may be made out to a Benefit Fund in Marty’s name at Glens Falls National Bank Trust, 250 Glen St., Glens Falls, NY 12801, to help pay for funeral expenses.
