Martin J. ("Marty") Sweeney was a son, brother, husband, father, uncle, nephew and friend. Marty was born in Cleveland, Ohio as the second oldest child of Anthony (also nicknamed "Marty") and Bernadette (nee Traynor), (both deceased). He was a brother to Rosemary, James, Michael (deceased) and Tommy (deceased). Marty was a husband to Sharon (nee Oles), and father to his two beautiful daughters, Jacqueline and Brittany. He was an uncle to Tom DeSilvio, a brother in law to Wayne Oles (deceased), Mark DeSilvio, and Marie Sweeney, and a nephew of many aunts and uncles that are part of a large Irish family. He was also a friend of many, some since childhood.
Marty graduated from John Carroll University in Cleveland, Ohio and obtained his law degree from Cleveland Marshall College of Law. After graduating from law school Marty moved to Dallas, Texas. He dearly loved Texas and considered himself a Texan. Marty worked for several law firms in Dallas, specializing in litigation. He was a fierce advocate for his clients in the courtroom.
Marty's main joys in life were his daughters, from attending their sporting and school events as children to proudly seeing them grow into young adults.
Marty was very devoted to his Catholic faith, often attending daily Mass. Even during his life challenges, his faith never waivered.
Marty was unexpectedly taken from this life a little over a week after his 67th birthday. We will miss him and hope that he has been reunited with his Lord and parents and brothers.

Cuimhnigh nach bhfuil mo troid ar an anáil
Cuimhnigh nach bhfuil an striocht
Ná téigh ar mo bhás
Ach ceiliúradh mo shaol
translation: Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife
Please do not dwell upon my death
But celebrate my life.
