It was June 22, 1982 when I meet you. You where two weeks into your probation period at UPS and I was just starting my first day. We shared a common birth month and you shared your dad's comment about your birthday being December 31. Over the next few years we got to know each other really well. I still have and use the drill you gave me as a birthday gift in 1989. I still tell the story of our first dove hunting trip; you shooting doubles as the doves flew over; you are still the only person I've ever seen shoot doubles. During the time when we were both single it was fun going to the clubs and generally having a good time. I always enjoyed going to the rodeo and the BBQ cook-off with you, young girls in tight jeans always got our attention and made us laugh at the same time. I'll never forget going to "the land" and creating a big barn fire and watching it burn while having a beer or two. I miss hanging out and laughing with you; it is funny every-time we hung out laughter was always the outcome of our conversations.

Rest in peace my friend.

When I first met you back in 1986 under the galleria when I started at ups I thought you were the biggest jerk. Fast forward to hanging out with you during both our divorces, camping trip,visiting your grandmas place, and the cool days we would wear our cowboy hats and sip jack Daniels , i counted you as one of my best friends. You would do anything for a friend in your inner circle. My daughter still remembers your rabbits in stafford. Rest my friend knowing you are missed and loved.

Sure sorry to hear this news about Martin. A lot of good memories from when we worked together at UPS. We lost a good man. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

I worked with Martin at UPS. I started as a driver in 1983 and Martin took me under his wing. We became good friends. Anyone that knew Martin would agree that Martin didn't let too many people get close to him. I was fortunate to be in his inner circle. I met his mother, grandmother and his aunt. They were all wonderful people and accepted me into their homes.

I have many stories I could tell and many more that I shouldn't but I will say that we shared a lot of laughs and drank quite a few beers together. Martin helped me get through a divorce and helped me acclimate to the UPS way of life. He was a good friend. I was transferred to Louisiana in 2005 and lost touch with Martin and will always be sad that I didn't reestablish contact with him.

RIP my old friend you are missed. God has a special place in heaven for him.
