Survivors include his loving twin daughters Bonnie Martin and husband Tony and Brenda McClung and husband Paul, all of Meadow Bridge; 10 grandchildren Levi Martin, Luke Martin (Kayla), Nole McClung (Megan), Natalie McClung, Christopher Watson, Betty Watson, Cordell McClung, Faith Martin, Tony Martin, and Isaac Martin; 4 great-grandchildren; 1 sister-in-law Joann Crowe and husband Edward of Meadow Bridge; and several nieces and nephews.
Services will be 12 noon Wednesday, November 15, at Smathers Funeral Chapel, with Pastors Mike Nutter and Al Whitt officiating. Burial will be in the Wallace Memorial Cemetery at Clintonville.
