I am his niece and was honored to be a flower girl in his wedding. His beautiful wife Kathy of 56 years is my Aunt (my fathers youngest sister). Aunt Kathy and Uncle Bucky epitomized “Match made in Heaven” God Bless the Martin/Gott family as they deal with the profound loss of a wonderful Husband/Father/Grand father/Brother/Uncle and Friend who touched so many lives.
My deepest sympathy and Love ❤️ Amy Fox
