Martin (Marty) J. Meehan, 69, of Oswego, passed away unexpectedly of natural causes on March 27, 2021.

Born in Oswego, he was the son of the late John E and Helen (Diviney) Meehan.

Marty was predeceased by his brother, Michael T. Meehan, in 2018.

He was a graduate of Oswego High School and Bradley University. After an extensive career in construction engineering, he retired from the Onondaga County Department of Water and Environment protection in 2012.

Marty was an avid golfer and lovingly remembered by routing on his favorite teams the New York Yankees and Syracuse University men’s basketball. Marty was a gentle soul, helping out anyone in his path that may have needed it. He could often be found at one of the local establishments, warming the hearts of many with his kind, generous and caring nature. His grandson brought such joy to his life and he was looking forward to the birth of his second grandson, a brother to Cashel, in August 2021.
