March 7, 1939 — July 4, 2024

Lawrence "Larry" Martensson, 85, of Castleton passed away at St. Peter's Hospital on July 4, 2024 after a brave seven year battle with cancer. Born in Pittsfield, MA, he was the son of the late Nils "Helge" and Bertha Martensson. Larry was a United States Army veteran having been honorably discharged just prior to the start of the Vietnam War. Before moving to Castleton, where he has resided for the last 48 years, Larry started his data processing career at State Mutual Life Assurance in Worcester, MA and moved to Oneonta, NY to accept a 2 year position at SUCO in 1973. Larry held several computer software sales positions in the Albany area and started his business, KLM Search Services, where he worked closely with the DMV to obtain information for his clients. He ran his business for 30 years retiring in 2021. He enjoyed playing golf and bowling in his younger years and had a passion for working on his cars.

Larry is survived by his loving wife Sherry Martensson; sons, Kenneth Martensson of Clifton Park and Kevin (Brandie) Martensson of Stevensville, MD; grandchildren, Weston, Max, and Nolan Martensson as well as several nieces and nephews. Larry was predeceased by his two siblings.
