In Memoriam


In Memory of

Martin (Lefty) A. Cohen

March 7, 1927 - September  6, 2016


Martin Cohen (AKA "Marty" or "Lefty"), Port Authority Police Officer from 1952-1972, Badge number 1193, and member of the United States Coast Guard in World War II, Marty was 89 and passed away on his own terms at UC Davis Medical Center after the rupture of his abdominal aortic aneurysm on Tuesday, September 6, 2016 at 5:30 p.m.

His daughter Marlo was at his side the entire time, holding his hand and telling him how much she loved him while they listened to Sinatra on the radio. Marty will be missed more than words can say, but his sense of humor, his stories, his strength and his love will be remembered and carried on by his children and grandchildren and by all those whom he has touched in so many ways.

Have a cigar or a glass of bourbon in his honor. A pastrami sandwich or cannoli will suffice too. A memorial service will be held in Marty's honor on October 9, 2016 at 2:30 p.m. at Congregation Beth Shalom, 1455 Elm Street, Napa, CA. Condolences can be sent to Marty's daughter Marlo at He was so proud to have served New York City in this capacity.
