Martin was a very kind and gentle man who was loved by all who met him, but he was also strong minded, highly opinionated and hopelessly inexorable. He worked hard and studied electronics at Wright College and computer science at Northern Illinois University and worked as a technician for over 40 years and he also was an avid chess player. Martin was also a man of faith, and confessed his love for Christ at an early age.
