Born in Dallas, Texas. Long time resident of Grand Prairie, Texas. Graduated from South Grand Prairie High School, Class of ‘87. Martin will be remembered as a great Husband, Dad, Papa, Brother, Uncle, Cousin, and Friend. He could always make you laugh; just ask many of his friends, coworkers, and neighbors. Martin was a boxer in his younger years and had many trophies to show. Family always came first, unless a cowboy game was on. He was a huge fan, win or loose. Heather, his gracious wife, allowed him to have a man cave full of Dallas Cowboy memorabilia. If not watching the Cowboys or grilling, he would head to Traders Village to find many treasures. Martin believed Jesus Christ was his Lord and Savior and always led his family to put God first. He worked at Artex Overhead Door for sixteen years. Respected by his coworkers as a go-to for help on any project. He would always help in anyway he could. That’s the kind of man he was. His sense of humor, pranks, and jokes will be missed by all.
