Mr. Martin worked as a store manager for Winn Dixie of 45 years. He was an avid outdoorsman and was a longtime member of the Catahoula Hunting Club. He loved hunting deer and ducks and enjoyed fishing for sac-a-lait, all of which he passed on these passions for the outdoors on to his sons. Mr. Martin was also a lifelong fan of the New Orleans Saints and LSU football, and any football team that his sons or grandsons played on. According to one of his hunting buddies, "He didn't have a mean bone in his body.". He will be sadly missed by his family and friends.
He is survived by his sons, Terry Martin (Jaime), Ty Martin (Lani), and Travis Martin (Chelsea); grandchildren, Chet Martin, Logan Martin, Meagan Martin, and Sage Martin; brother Richard "Dickie" Martin; and his sister Juanita "Kitty" (Larry) Degeyter.
