The gentle man with a huge heart, Frank J. Martin, III, 67, of Key Road, Keene, NH, will be greatly missed with his sudden passing at his home in Keene on Tuesday, July 9, 2019.

His parents, Edna (Sturgill) and Frank J. Martin, Jr. welcomed their son into the world on February 12, 1952 in Keene, NH.

A lifelong resident of Keene, Frank worked as a grocery clerk with the former OK Fairbanks Grocery Store in Keene.

Frank married his soulmate, Linda Adams, on September 21, 1974 in Brattleboro, Vermont. The two enjoyed countless rides in the car together, exploring the countryside and traveling through covered bridges, Frank’s favorite pastime. He also enjoyed going out to eat. Frank was an avid fan of the Patriots, Celtics, Bruins and Red Sox.

He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Linda E. Martin of Keene; a brother, Paul Martin of Hartwell, Georgia; a sister, Diane Tinker of Keene; and several nieces, nephews and extended family members.

A graveside service will be held on Monday, July 15, 2019 at 1:00PM in the Monadnock View Cemetery, Park Avenue, Keene. All are welcome. There are no public calling hours.

In lieu of flowers, for those who wish, donations may be made in Mr. Martin’s memory to the American Diabetes Association, 260 Cochituate Road #200, Framingham, MA 01701.

Dear Linda,

I am so sorry for your loss. Frank always had a smile on his face, whenever we talked. And he finally made friends with Frostie. He was a big man with a heart to match.
