Marty Ochs died Jan. 21, 2008.

He entered Princeton from Baylor Prep in Chattanooga, Tenn., and joined Tower Club. His Princeton career was interrupted by service as an intelligence officer in France and Germany, after which he returned to Princeton and received a degree in English in 1947.

Marty became editor of the Chattanooga Times and married Celia Latimer in 1952. He moved to Charlottesville, Va., to become an editor in public relations at the University of Virginia. He then went to Egypt to teach mass communications at the American University in Cairo. Marty later returned to the United States and retired in Charlottesville.

Celia predeceased him in 2007. Marty leaves three children, Patricia Ochs Manning, Celia Martin Ochs, and Shelby Ochs Owen, to whom the class expresses its sympathy.
