Edward J. and Linda Martin
Eddie and I met while I was in high school and Eddie was in the Marine Corp. We dated for a while and fell in love. After Eddie got out of the Marine Corp and I got out of high school, June 1963, we were married January 25, 1964.
Our love brought us 3 wonderful sons, Eddie Jr., David, and John. We also have five grandchildren, Morgan, Casey, Stacy, Dustin, and David Jr..
Eddie was a Steamfitter, Pipefitter by trade. Over the years Eddie had many operations (20). In November of 1999 he had a gastric–by-pass, he weighted 400 lbs. After years of losing weight it got so people would walk by him and not recognize Eddie. He got down to 205, a good weight for him.
Eddie over came many hurtles when it came to his health. He always had a smile and a good sense of humor. The doctors were always amazed at his quick recoveries and good attitude.
