News of our Friend Dave Martin – May 24, 2020

Dave Martin was a very special person who many of us knew well from the shuffleboard tournaments. I got a message from Al Dronsfield that I felt I should share with those who knew him.
“Good morning to all, I reported a couple of weeks ago that Dave Martin had entered into a home hospice care status. Dave chose to spend his final time in his home looking out his living room window as he called it his Million Dollar view of Lake Eustis. It was certainly that. We had many of his friends over the day he arrived back home, it was a nice get together.
With a very heavy heart that I am informing you that Dave Martin’s journey ended yesterday about 6:30 p.m.
Dave’s wife Helen stated it was peaceful, he had gone through so much to reach this point.
Helen has told me that there would be a family memorial of some kind back in Erie, Pa amongst family members. It was Dave’s wish to have some of his ashes spread in 3 places where he and I fished a lot. Helen will be returning to Florida and she and I will go out in my boat taking his ashes to the 3 places we fished together in the Dora Canal. I am also having a Memorial plaque made which we will have mounted in the canal where he once lived.
I was lucky enough to meet Dave’s children, Dan and Jessica. Quality kids, Dan is an MD and Jessica is an RN in Erie, Pa. Helen, Dave’s wife is also a very special person and i’ve been fortunate to meet her and come to know them all.
I hope you all will keep Dave and the Martin family in your thoughts and prayers.” He will be missed.
