Donald Clifton Martin, Jr., age 65, passed away peacefully on Tuesday April 10th, 2018 at Halifax Hospice Orange City surrounded by his loving family.
Jr was born on Saturday, February 7th, 1953 in Towanda, Pennsylvania to Evelyn Ramsey and Donald Clifton Martin Sr.
Jr is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Tammy Martin. He also leaves behind his children: Tanya Martin, Donald Clifton Martin III (Melissa), Jessica Guzman (Victor), and Emily Martin (fiancé Chris) as well as three adored grandchildren: Lyla Marie, Bryce Clifton, and Alexandria Norelle. Also grieving Jr’s passing are his siblings: Sharlene, Patti, Donna, Lori, Tommy, and Jim.
Jr was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He was an accomplished carpenter and lover of the outdoors. He spent much of his life fishing, shrimping, “tinkering” in the yard (as he could fix anything), and he constantly kept his family laughing. Jr was creative, talented, and skilled beyond measure.
His family and friends will feel his absence tremendously, but will always cherish the memories he helped create.
A Gathering of Family and Friends will be held on Friday, April 13, 2018 at 11:30am with a Funeral Service at 12pm at Halifax Health Hospice 1625 Veterans Memorial Parkway Orange City, Florida 32763. Interment will follow at 1:30pm at Pinehurst Cemetery 495 East Retta Street De Leon Springs, Florida 32130.
In lieu of flowers, Jr’s family asks that donations be made to Halifax Health Hospice in his honor.
