Martin Kornbluh

Martin Scott Kornbluh, a wonderful man who’ll be greatly missed, died on September 16, 2021 at the age of 74. We’ll remember Martin as ever-buoyant, with an irrepressible spirit and an indomitable will. He dealt with life’s difficulties, including the loss of his beloved wife Judy in 2019, with determination, discipline, and an optimistic energy. He was utterly kind and a thoughtful friend to all, always eager to lend a hand or send a card. He was also endlessly curious, and thrived on learning new things, meeting new people, and deepening his connections to those around him.


In lieu of an in-person gathering during these uncertain times, we’ve created this site as a space to remember and celebrate Martin. Though we’ll miss the chance to see you all together and to meet more of the many people whose lives Martin touched, we hope you’ll find as much cheer and comfort as we do in the photos and thoughts collected on these pages. If you'd like to offer memories or reflections for others to enjoy, you can share them here.
