Joe F. Martin, age 83, of Bangs, passed from this life on December 4, 2019.

Joe was born on November 12, 1936 in Santa Anna to Mary “Edith” (Sikes) and Charles LeRoy “Roy” Martin. He was a graduate of Brookesmith schools.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you take this time to reach out and visit with your own grandparents or parents, and let them know how much they are loved.  We also request you donate to your local animal shelter, to support the next “Sarge” that may find his way into someone else’s heart, the way Joe’s dog found its way in to his.

The family will have a private memorial service at a later date.

Services are under the direction of Heartland Funeral and Cremation Service.
