MECHANICVILLE - Martin “Marty” Vincent Chauvin, 87, of Mechanicville, passed away peacefully on Monday evening, September 28, 2020 surrounded by his family. He was predeceased by his parents, Dr. Emmett Chauvin, DDS and Lucille Carmody Chauvin. He is survived by the love of his life, his wife of 65 years, Bettina Izzo Chauvin. Marty graduated from Siena College and served two years in the Army. He spent the majority of his career working for the New York State Department of Transportation in Albany. He was an avid reader and he and Bettina made frequent visits to the Mechanicville public library. He enjoyed playing golf with his family and friends, known to prefer the fastest round possible at the earliest tee time. He enjoyed watching (and yelling at) the Yankees, Giants and Notre Dame, usually with a cold one in hand. Most of all, Marty delighted in spending time with his family, taking pride in all of his children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
