Born in Providence, a son of the late James F. and Viola (Laramee) Martin.

He is survived by a brother, Kevin T. Martin and his wife Barbara in Arizona and many wonderful nieces and nephews, cousins and friends.  A special place in his heart will be held for his long-time companion, Lillian Phillips-Hatch of Coventry who was by his side throughout his journey.
