A faithful member of Brown Creek Baptist Church for many years, Mr. Martin loved nothing more than to play his violin in church for special services.

Caruso (Fred) of Fayetteville; and seven grandchildren. In addition to his parents, Mr. Martin was preceded in death by two sisters, Ann Cromartie and Alyce Fagan.
