Marty joined Willkie Council 3575 in 1960, transferring to Unity 5707, then to Msgr. Janssen 4959 in Regina, on to Charter GK of 8896 and presently at 9539 in Saskatoon. During 1988-1990 he served as State Deputy and from 1993-1997 was Vice Supreme Master of the Simon Fraser Province 4th Degree. The ceremonials of the Order provided some of his greatest satisfaction, conferring the Third Degree over 70 times over more than 20 years. This culminated in 2002 with an invitation from the Supreme Council to serve as a Ceremonials Coordinator for the Order. For over 10 years, he travelled extensively throughout the USA and Canada, mentoring Degree Teams. He still delivers the Fraternal Charge in the Third Degree.
His love and concern for the Foundation led him and Clare to set up an Endowment Fund with particular interest in end of life issues, palliative and hospice care.
