Richard Boyd Martin
Richard was born to Lewis and Mary Martin. Richard spent well over four decades teaching others about his love for Jehovah God through his ministry. Anyone who knew Richard, knew that he never met a stranger. His booming voice and infectious laugh were two of his memorable qualities. He loved people and he loved to tell stories of his many adventures. He also displayed a talent for drawing and poetry.
Richard passed away on Nov. 9, 2019, after an extended illness.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Lewis and Mary Martin; and all of his siblings, except for his sister, Bessie Martin.
Richard leaves behind to cherish his memory, his wife, Mae; his children, Felix Martin, (Lavunda), Regina Humes, (Glenny) of South Carolina, Sean Hopkins, Malcolm Hopkins, (Christina) and Roger Hopkins of Indiana; sister, Bessie Martin of New York; a host of grandchildren; and special friends.
Services will be held 3 p.m. Friday at Glazebrooks Funeral Services, 2822 Nichol Ave., with visitation held from to 2 to 3 p.m. prior to services.
