Play Tribute Movie

Junior Ray Martin was born May 7, 1951 to Alta Spears and Jerry "Bud" Martin in Arkansas. He had 10 siblings; Sue, Bob, Glenn, Mike, Rex, Jerry, Kelley, Jim, Celesta, and Reedee. He is survived by Bob, Rex, Jerry, Kelley, Jim, Celesta, and Reedee. Throughout his school years, Junior was an exceptional wrestler, a strength he carried with him beyond high school as he entered the military. He served 10 years in the military, as a devoted and honored marine. After the military he became devoted to his family and career as a truck driver. Junior loved being a family man and enjoyed watching his children, Heidi and Jared, grow up. His love and loyalty continued on as a proud Papa to Heidi’s children, Jordan and Maci (great-grandson Braxtyn), and Jared’s children, Jonah and Logan. His family quickly grew when he met his match and loving wife, Rosie Dimas, in 2009. Junior became a stepfather to Rosie’s 6 children; Lisa, Mary, Erica, Rosie, Michelle, and Daniel; 18 grandchildren; and one more great-grandson. He cherished time with his family as he filled his life with birthday parties, watching his grandchildren play sports, going on camping trips, and fixing meals for all of those he treasured and cared for. He was a strong, brave, kind, respectful, selfless, loving man that we will continue to honor. He will be forever missed, but always in our hearts.
