Let the memory of Martin be with us forever

This memorial website was created in loving memory of Martin Milrad, born on September 9, 1930 and passed away on October 19, 2015. 

Marty was one of a kind - a master at sardonic humor, a loving husband, a loyal friend, and a generous father who deeply loved his four children. His imperfections made him special - and he had a unique way of bringing a smile and a laugh to the world.

Marty, Daddy-O, friend and partner, we miss you and love you always.

"Dad,

Thinking of you today, on your 87th birthday.
What made you great were the simple acts of kindness you showed me throughout my life.
The cards, the articles (including when you circled a picture of a monkey and said it resembled you), the ceaseless encouragements and compliments, and your awe and amazement at everything I achieved.
You weren't perfect, and at times you were more absent than I wanted you to be. As a child, it angered me that you and Mom weren't able to stay together - but as I grew older, I realized that you did the right thing for all of us.
I miss your kindness, your encouragement, and your imperfections. I miss your sardonic humor and wise cracks. You were one of a kind - and will forever remain so in my heart.

Love ya Daddy-O,
Jared"

"Dear Marty,
We were married in 1975 and divorced in 1992,
We have two incredible sons Shawn Mitchell Milrad and Jared Perry Milrad.
Marty was my beloved friend until the day he died.
While we couldn't make our marriage work forever we loved each other.
He was a sweet man.
Yes, of course he had his flaws who doesn't but he was caring, loving and kind always.
I think of him every day.
Looking at my two sons I see so much of Marty in them.
Life is short so they say but Marty if was a lovely moment when we fell in love.
I am grateful for that.
Bless you Dear Marty and now you are at rest.
I will always miss you as will your son's Shawn & Jared.
LOVE,
Jan"

"Thinking of you today, Dad, and everyday. I've missed you each day since I last saw you, and think of you often.

Hope you're laughing somewhere and enjoying Chinese food for the ages, perhaps in an alternate universe where you get along with all the waiters and the spring rolls are always very well-done.

You made me a better man and a better son, and I carry on your faith in me, always.

With love,
Jared"
