History

Martin’s Mortuary and on-site crematory is located in Grand Junction, Colorado. Established by F.C. Martin and his wife in 1917, our funeral home's original location was at 648 Main Street. Two years later the building at 623 Colorado Avenue was purchased and occupied for the next 21 years. Then in 1940, our current funeral home was constructed at 550 North Avenue.

Our traditions

Martin’s Mortuary was operated by the Martin family for 3 generations. Founders F.C. Martin and his wife were followed in 1937 by Edward Martin and his wife. In 1952, Paul E. Martin and his wife joined the firm, which remained in the Martin family until 1982, at which time R.A. "Bob" Crist and his son, Martin, became the owners.

Community involvement

We are a member of the Colorado Funeral Directors Association and National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA). Edward Martin served as both vice-president and president of NFDA, was the president of CFD and held various other offices as well.

Additionally, we have been members of National Selected Morticians and National Association of Approved Morticians. Membership in these organizations is by invitation only. Members are required to maintain the highest standards of professionalism and business qualifications.

"I did not know what to expect but was very pleasantly surprised by the entire way this service was handled by ALL the staff I interacted with especially Bree and Benjamin. I was very touched by how respectful the staff was of my deceased wife and of me. They quickly came all the way to Glenwood Springs to pick up my beautiful wife at 1 am on a ver

y early Monday morning and treated her so gently and respectfully. I can't thank them enough. It was very, very important to me, our family and all of our friends. They did not let us down."
