Martin S. Riger, age 83 of St. James, New York passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Monday June 6, 2022. Marty was born May 21, 1939 in Brooklyn, NY to his parents Sally and Joseph Riger.
Marty led an exemplary life of service and was a devoted husband to his wife Linda of 60 Years. Marty was an amazing and loving father to his children Robbin Riger Hartman and Michael Riger and to his son- in law Jeff Hartman and daughter in law Tracey Riger. He cherished his 6 grandchildren Courtney Hartman, Josh Riger, Samantha Hartman, Rachel Riger, Zachary Hartman and Ryan Hartman who viewed their grandfather as a living superhero. Marty was also a loving brother-in-law to Jackie and Bill Frank as well as a dedicated uncle to Steven Frank and Lisa Cardarelli.
Marty made it his lifelong practice of being a positive and uplifting influence to all those he came into contact with. He received numerous coaching awards during his tenure and is a member of The Jewish Sports Heritage Association and Brentwood High School Basketball Halls of Fame.
Our family greatly appreciates the heartfelt outpouring of support from Marty’s former players, friends, relatives and colleagues. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Martin Riger’s name be made to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center: secure2.convio.net
