COOK -- ROBERT MERTEN A big man with a clear vision and social conscience, died on Tuesday, November 29, 2011 at The Retreat, an Alzheimers/dementia facility in Rio Rancho, NM where he had received loving and attentive care for the last 21 months of his journey with Lewy Body Dementia. Bob, as he was known, was born at home on June 12, 1934 outside of Paterson in Totowa, NJ. His mother, Gerda Merten, was an immigrant from Germany. His father, Nicholas came from Holland. Bob attended grammar school in Totowa and high school in Little Falls, NJ. He earned a degree in Management Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, an MA and PhD from Princeton University and a LLD from the University of Connecticut School of Law. He may have been proudest of his welding certification which he acquired during his 20 years as an union ironworker and member of Local 357 in Springfield, MA. As a recipient of a Halloway grant that paid for his education at RPI, Bob spent 3 years as a Lt. in the USMC. After completing his studies at Princeton he became an assistant professor of Sociology at Yale University. In the 1960's he became involved in the civil rights movement. Twice he ran for the US Congress as a member of the American Independent Movement (AIM), a New Haven community group opposed to the Vietnam War. In 1973 Bob and his family left New Haven and moved to a remote hillside farm in Worthington, MA. There, while traveling at times to do ironwork, he rebuilt the old house, brought water to it from an up- hill spring, installed solar and wind systems to provide electricity, developed a maple syrup business, purchased and operated a sawmill and cut 20 cords of firewood each year to heat their home and boil the maple sap. At the age of 62 he returned to school, this time to become a federal attorney working seven years with the National Labor Relations Board. Throughout his entire life Bob sought knowledge. He seemed to be able to do almost anything. His desire to see social justice guided his actions. He was a gifted teacher and spoke with courage and elegance for the causes he believed in. He was the author of numerous publications. In Worthington he was at one time chairman of the planning board, a founding board member of the Maples Senior Housing and a member of the zoning board of appeals. In 1990 he was a candidate for the Massachusetts State legislature. Bob is survived by his wife and partner of 55 years, Karin Koger; two sons, Christopher Merten Cook of Gloucester, MA and in Albuquerque, NM, Benjamin Koger Cook, his wife Jacqueline and their two sons, Mackye Nicholas and Joshua Jackson. His daughter, Leslie Jane, died after a car accident in Cambridge, MA in 1979. Bob also leaves a sister, Gerda Ann Spiotta, her husband George, their three daughters and two cousins. To further understanding of the terrible disease that took his life, Bob's brain has been donated to Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. A Memorial Service will be held back in Massachusetts at a later date. Those wishing to honor his life may do so by contributing to the Alzheimers Association and most especially, following Bob's example, doing something that will make this world a better place.

MARTIN -- RANDALL WAYNE MAJOR USAF, RETIRED Age 56, of Albuquerque, NM, died Monday November 28, 2011 after a courageous fight with Multiple Sclerosis. He was born April 26, 1955 in Laramie, WY to Roy and Carol Martin and grew up in Cheyenne. His father inspired him to earn his Eagle Scout Award. He graduated from East High in 1973 and from the University of Wyoming in 1978. After graduation, he joined the Air Force in which he served proudly for 16 years. Randy married his high school sweetheart, Kay Vondy, on June 20, 1976. During their tours of duty in CA, ND, and ID, Randy and Kay had three children, Jennifer, Janelle, and Jason. In 1984, the Air Force brought them to NM where they made friends that they treasured dearly. He was deeply committed to his family, immediate and extended. In the last 12 years he was proud to be a Grandpa to his three grandchildren. During his Air Force career, Major Martin served as a Navigator and Electronic Warfare Officer on the B-52, and an Analytical Scientist for the IFFN and AFOTEC programs, EF-111, F-117, B-2, and F-22 airplanes. During Operation Desert Storm, he "flew" proudly from his computer desk. He retired from the Air Force in 1995 with the rank of Major and continued to be dedicated to God and Country throughout his life. He was a member at St. John's Methodist and later a charter member at Sandia Presbyterian. He was a choir member, deacon, videographer, and a friend. He helped organize Boy Scout Troop 1 and enjoyed many Bible study groups at SPC. He was a visionary, always looking for a way to improve things. He also volunteered at the VA fixing computers. He and Kay enjoyed traveling the country to visit their extended family and friends. The most remarkable thing about Randy was that despite living with MS for 26 years, every day he chose to have a positive attitude. He relied on his faith in God and his own philosophy that "life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it." He will be remembered by his caring heart, gentle spirit, and his contagious smile. Major Randall Martin is survived by his wife of 35 years, Kay; children, Jennifer and husband David, Janelle and husband Jordan, Jason and wife Staci; grandchildren, Brandon, Tyler and Katelyn; his mother, Carol; brothers, Rich and wife Jenny, David, Steve and wife Chris; sister, Karen and husband Frank; nieces, nephews and many other relatives.
