Martin “Marty” “Tex” Stockwell

Stockwell, MartyGLENS FALLS – Martin “Marty” “Tex” Stockwell, 58, passed away on Saturday, April 29, 2017, at his home in Glens Falls.

Born on January 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 on Thursday at 11:00 at Moss Street Cemetery in the town of Kingsbury with a celebration of life to follow the graveside service on Thursday from 4 to 6 p.m. 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 Street, Glens Falls, NY 12801, to help pay for funeral expenses.

    I have known Marty for a long time. As a matter of fact, Marty walked down the street I live on everyday for the 18 years I have been here. He always talked to me. He called me Jenny. Sometimes he would even just come to the door to say hello. I will miss seeing him go by and miss talking to him. I was so shocked and saddened to hear he had passed away. I am so very sorry for your loss.

    I would like to express my sympathy to all of Marty’s family and friends. When my Dad, Coach Tony Luciano, passed away Marty sent us a beautiful card and note he wrote to our family. It meant a great deal to all of us. I ran into Marty a couple of years later in Glens Falls. We had the nicest conversation about his days in Hudson Falls and memories he shared about Dad. We are so sorry for your loss. May he rest in peace.

      Marty was an angel walking the earth. His love for people and his innocence was wonderful to behold. I introduced myself to Marty at Cumberland Farms on Bay St, GF and said hello. I had seen him previously but wanted to let him know I cared enough to take time to show him he mattered. We spoke briefly and his smile never left him. I have a soft spot for all the Marty’s in Glens Falls because my sister, Claire, and my brother Kevin were both special like Marty. They also died very young. And now they are all resting in peace.
