Martin was a kind, generous and loving husband, father and grandfather. Martin ran a successful Stucco business, but always had time for family and friends. Family was very important to him. We all have fond memories of time spent together at Falcon Lake and on family holidays. He loved to travel, garden and drive his 1956 Thunderbird.
