    Marty was an intelligent and compassionate man who was always ready to listen. His caring nature was a big comfort to my husband and I. He was a gentlemen who we admired so much. The world was a better place with Marty Steadman in it. Rest in peace, Marty.

    I had the distinct pleasure of meeting with Marty weekly during many legislative Sessions, he was my first (very early, unscheduled) meeting every Tuesday and I was always assured a good story as we tried to figure strategy on how to get our shared bills passed. He was a tireless advocate for the UFOA and the larger labor family and a helpful mentor to me in my initial years handling labor issues in the legislature. Deepest condolences to his family.

    Thoughts and prayers are with your family. I never met you Marty but knew your son Jim who was my #1 volunteer at the Long Island March of Dimes walk-a-thon. My sincere condolences Jim. May your Dad Rest in Peace.

    You had to listen carefully to Marty, but it was certainly worth. Few knew Albany better then him.
    Marty had a passion for truth and knew how to tell the story. It is what made him such a valued advocate.
    It seems trite to say they broke the mold, but it is so true of Marty. We are so much richer for having known him.

    Dearest Marty,
    We’re so fortunate to have visited with you only a few weeks ago.
    My wife Madeleline and I got a chance to see you, hold your hands, give you our love, and say our final goodbyes.
    We count that as a blessing considering how much your good counsel and friendship was a steady and reliable source of support and comfort during six terrible years in our family’s life.
    We benefited from your expertise and incredible knowledge. We benefited from your compassion and your fierce devotion to the truth.
    You were a gentleman, and an honorable man, that hailed from a generation of men who showed us what patriotism, and love of family, and country is all about.
    For our family, you were a tower of strength, and we will always cherish the gift of your unwavering help and guidance
    thanks to the FDNY.
    Thank you hardly seems enough.
    Now you can Rest In Peace with your beautiful wife Peggy. God Bless you!
    All our love,
    Stephen, Madeleline Sharp and children

    I didn't spend a lot of time with you Marty; I regret not having spent more. But, I will never forget that time, and will forever cherish it You have worked long and hard Marty, so rest in peace my good friend.

    Marty had the spirit of a blue-collar turnstile kid at Yankee stadium, with a grilled cheese in one hand and a giant grin on his face as he got in for a dime and watched from the bleachers. He brought that spirit of buoyant curiosity, working-class sensibility, and sharp observation to the halls of greatest power and simply called things as he saw them. His kindness and generosity were a gift to the world. Enjoy the games from up there my friend, I am sure the view is fantastic.

    A gentleman and friend such as Marty played a significant part in anyone's life who had the pleasure of meeting him. Intelligent, kind, moral and loyal are just a few of the attributes Marty possessed. He and Peggy were a wonderful couple who loved one another throughout their many years together. He carried that picture of Peggy in his wallet and was proud to show it to you at anytime. My wife and I had the opportunity to spend a few days with them in Grand Cayman and enjoyed every minute being with them. Marty was special in many ways but mainly in his friendship. He never hesitated to mentor you if there were any complications he saw and you did not. The UFOA was very fortunate to have Marty in our ranks. God rest your soul Marty and enjoy your heavenly time with Peggy. Jack & Denise McDonnell

    Marty was a true mentor and an incredible source for sound advice in navigating the complexities of American politics. He was a dear friend of me personally, however, he was a greater friend to all those in the FDNY who continue to benefit from all the incredible legislative bills he played a major role of getting signed. We are eternally grateful for your dedicated service and passion for helping others. Thank you Marty, my Woodside comrade!

    I used to tease Marty that he was a flame-throwing, card-carrying, commie agitator. What he really was, though, was a tireless and passionate champion of the working man. God bless him.

    Marty Steadman was a wonderful and wise man. He provided priceless press and governmental advice to generations of the Uniformed Fire Officers Association. Every member of the FDNY owes our friend a debt of gratitude. Thank you Marty!
