Letter to the Editor: In remembrance of Marty

Dear Editor,

Marty Brown was a true original, possessing a king-sized heart and a gift for relating to the people who needed the services he provided at Habro's Garage. I depended on Marty and his capable staff to extricate me from mechanical catastrophes and they accomplished this with speed, accuracy and a fair price all the while making me feel like I was the most important
client of the day.

Marty could turn an unpromising situation into a three-ring circus with the exchange of phone calls (always amusing) that kept me apprised of progress and finally the phone call that said "your car is all ready, I'll bring it down." The ride back to the garage was literally a "trip." He was a wonderful person to be with. My heart goes out to his beautiful family and the many friends he leaves behind. He was a true asset to this community and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.

With heartfelt appreciation,
Tim Owings, Mission Farm
