Attitude wrote: Martyn was a brilliant, witty friend of Attitude who had previously shared his infectious humour by writing several pieces for us. We share everybody’s shock and sorrow at news of his passing and would like to extend our deepest sympathies to his loved ones at this time.

Though we never knew him personally, it always heartbreaking to hear the news that a member of community was taken before their time. Innocent people, that have their whole lives ahead of them; that are about to go chasing their dreams before having that opportunity and all the others unruly taken. Our hearts go out to his family and friends – stay strong.
