He was born Feb 8 1933. Died Aug 15 2006.

We know very little, & are unsure if what we know is fact or surmising.

What we have heard is that he was born to a 17 year old single mother, and placed in foster care through Millersville Children's Home, Millersville Pa

Possibly a connection to Juniata Co., or Boyertown, Berks Co.

We know he had at least one brother that he found,but we have no information.

The 1940 census has his name as Marlin Frederick FRY, however as long as anyone now living knew him with a last name as FREY. He had mentioned to someone about changing the spelling of his last name

According to one tree on ancestry.com, his parents were Henry W. Martin (born 1907) and Ada B. Zimmerman (born 1908). I don't know why he'd be a Frey if his mother was a Zimmerman. They reference the following source:  Zimmerman's Family History 1720 - 1988, compiled By Ezra & Maria Zimmerman, R.D. 3, Ephrata, Pennsylvania 17522.

I located his obituary and it states that his parents were Henry W. & Ada B. (Zimmerman) Martin.  So... are these his foster parents?

Yes these were his foster parents. This is what I'm finding in every genealogical search I do. Hoping there's someone somewhere who can tell me anything! :)
