    Martin M. Arlook, age 85, passed away peacefully on October 13, 2017 at his home in Sandy Springs, GA, in presence of his loving wife Elinor, son Richard, and grandchildren. Marty was a native of Jersey City, New Jersey, and served in various senior executive service positions for more than 50 years with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the nation’s premier law enforcement agency in protection of labor rights of private sector employees. He retired as Regional Director of the NLRB in Atlanta in 2011. At the time of his retirement from the Atlanta Region, where he supervised all agency operations in Georgia, northern Alabama, and eastern Tennessee, he was the longest serving active regional director in the country. He also served the NLRB in Puerto Rico, first as Regional Attorney and then as Regional Director (from 1969 to 1982). He began his NLRB career in the Manhattan Regional Office in 1960. He was a member of the Bars of New York, New Jersey, and the District of Columbia. Arlook graduated with honors from the Milford Preparatory School in Connecticut and received his undergraduate degree from the University of Chicago. He received his law degree from Rutgers University where he served as an editor of the law review and, from 1956 until 1959, served as an Assistant Staff Judge Advocate at 3rd Army Headquarters in Atlanta. He retired as a colonel in the U.S. Army reserves. Following active military service, Marty attended New York University where he received his Master of Laws degree in labor law. Marty’s first and most enduring love was his family. He is survived by beloved wife, Elinor to whom he was married for more than 57 years. Son, Richard (Nicole) heads The Arlook Group, a personal management, production, and consulting firm in the entertainment industry in Beverly Hills, California. Marty adored his five grandchildren: Rachel, Emily, Ethan, Dylan, and Romy, and was devoted to sister Florence. The Arlooks’ younger son Edward required and received specialized health care and passed away in 2006. Marty loved the law and felt privileged to devote his career to public service. At the time of his retirement in 2011, he said, “I shall miss doing the good work we do and, of course, those with whom it is done.” He mentored scores, if not hundreds, of labor lawyers whom he loved and respected and who loved and respected him in return. He was widely admired by those who knew him for his knowledge, his love of work, his love of music, his sense of humor (and ability to terrifically tell a hilarious and, at times, bawdy, joke) -- and his pursuit of life to the fullest. Sign online guestbook at The funeral will be held Monday at Bernheim Apter Kreitzman Suburban Funeral Chapel in Livingston, NJ, with Rabbi Matthew Gerwitz officiating; burial will follow in Mt. Moriah Cemetery, Fairview, NJ – times to be announced. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Weinstein Hospice, 3150 Howell Mill Rd. NW, Atlanta, GA 30327, Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.

    My sincerest condolences on Marty’s passing. He was an NLRB legend who was as vibrant and passionate an advocate as anyone I met in my 36 years with the Agency. He was certainly one of a kind.

    Please accept our sympathies and condolences and know that you are not alone at your difficult time of loss. Marty was unforgettable and his presence will be remembered by all of us forever. We especially remember his compassion and support when Wanda was recovering from cancer treatment when she worked in the Atlanta office. May his love and the memories comfort you.

    Dear Elinor and Family, I am saddened. Marty was a deeply committed public servant and his time and many contributions to the NLRB were when the Agency was at its zenith in terms of its effect on the working men and women of our country. I know he was proud of his service and I am confident that you are as well. In my positions in the NLRB's Division of Operations-Management and as a fellow Regional Director, I always enjoyed and valued Marty as a colleague and friend. His life made a difference. What more can you ask. I will miss him. Allan
