Marty Cooper

We lost a very important part of our club this last week.  Marty Cooper from Lake Mary died at his home of unknown causes.

He was a pivotal part of the trail system working on the trail more than riding on it, which he LOVED to do.  He was a VERY special person who touched the lives of many.  He will be greatly missed

We will ALL miss you Marty, may all your trails be smooth 🙂 PEACE my friend, you are and have always been a very genuine soul !

    Our family did not know Marty very well but too are shocked of his passing. He was a person that always had time to say hi and lend a helpful hand. His work with local snowmobile clubs went noticed by many and his presence at all functions was appreciated. Marty’s dedication will be missed and we wish his heavenly soul the comfort and happiness that he deserves. Marty, God Bless You and Ride In Peace.

    Did not know Marty very well, but knew of his presence at all the snowmobile functions in the Marinette County area as well as all the time he put in on the trail system. Only talked to him at Bear Point a few times, but know he will be greatly missed and I wish I could have got to know him better. God Bless Marty may there be smooth trails ahead.

      I’m Marty’s little sister,I was just thinking about you, ya know Marty’s had the picture of you and him and Liberty and Spider hanging on the wall of his place for years. He had given me your number several years ago when I was looking for a bike. I literally just found it earlier tonight still buried in the glove compartment of my truck.
      Marty passed away from pneumonia, which makes it even more difficult to deal with. I don’t think he knew how many lives he had touched, he will be missed by so many

    I am also shocked to hear of Marty’s passing. We didn’t know hime very well, but he would always makes sure he came and talked to the hubby and I whenever he saw us. Our prayers go out to his family. He will be greatly missed by many.

    Marty was one of the nicest people i knew, not too many people left in the world that would help you out and never ask for anything in return. He will be truly missed by me and my family. Rest in peace my dear friend, and we will meet again one day

    We have lost a good neighbor, and snowmobiling has lost one of the most devoted, hard working trail people we know, MARTY COOPER. We have known Marty since he moved to Lake Mary and snowmobiling was his passion, expecially working on trails. Marty worked on trails, signs, and projects year round. Thank you, MARTY! Only a few people know the time he put in to improve the sport for everyone. We hope the man upstairs has a Ski-Doo for you to ride, and a cool Pabst for you to drink. We will have you in our memory every time we drive past your place to get to our place.

    I loved Marty as a brother and a friend and I will miss him more than words can ever tell. It has been a great comfort to see the out pouring of love from everyone. I knew he had a lot of friends that cared about him, but this has been overwhelming. I can picture Marty standing there with a Pabst in hand saying “I don’t know what the big deal is” He didn’t think the stuff he did was a big deal, and I think that’s part of why we all loved him.

    Roxy as I said on the phone Your brother had no idea how many people he touched and cared about him. As you said to him it would be whats the big deal all about.

      With some uplifting thoughts……last I laughed with Marty and Slug was at the snowmobile raffle in Crivitz when Slug and Marty were telling me of Marty’s bright white legs sporting shorts on their river float – I think I pictured that all the way home that day, may had come close to missing a few corners chuckling with a vision.

    Marty always had a smile for you. He will be missed by many. May happy memories carry you through this sorrowful time. You will always be in our hearts.

    We didn’t know him but what we read on here We wish that we would have met him.
