Ronald G. Martin

July 22, 1939 — December 16, 2023


Ronald G. Martin, age 84, entered into eternal rest on Saturday, December 16, 2023.  He was preceded in death by his parents: Gilbert and Lauretta, his wife: Jane, his son:  Michael and his grandson:  Joey. He was a son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle and friend who will be dearly missed.

He is survived by his children: Kimberly(Robert), Patrick(Kris), Ronald(Mary) and Lauretta(Dean), his sister: Carolyn, his grandchildren:  Ashley(Adam), Cory(Ashly), Elle, Danielle(Jasen), Michael(Nadine), McKenzie(Joe), Brody, and his great-grandchildren: Joey, Thomas, Addison, and Ezra.  He is also survived by an extended family and many friends to cherish and honor his memory. 

Ronald was born in Acushnet, MA.  His work ethic was instilled in him at the early age of 8 years old, washing windows and pumping gas at a local gas station for money to buy himself a horse.  He was forever after driven in everything he did by that same focus.  Some of his accomplishments throughout his life include: mechanic, steel worker, house builder, policeman, ambulance driver, appraiser, draftsman, general contractor and film production equipment developer.  If he could think it and draw it, he would find a way to build it.

He was an avid car enthusiast:  whether it was building them, owning them or racing them.  His natural curiosity and wanderlust sent him driving all over the country just to see what was up the road and how fast he could get there.  His smile, quickly followed by his boyish chuckle will be forever missed.
