Martin was born on August 4, 1957 in Arlington, Virginia. In 1982 he moved to Williamston, Michigan where he met the love of his life Dawn and the two were wed on September 20, 1985. One of Martin’s passions throughout his life was cooking. Whether it was as a chef at Papa Dick’s Bistro, The Seahawk Restaurant or simply just whipping up a home cooked meal, Martin loved being in the kitchen. Martin was not shy about his love for his grandkids, often saying “those grandkids are my life.” Dad loved to make people laugh. He was always telling classic “dad jokes” and making up silly songs, he will forever be remembered for his witty sense of humor and his infectious laugh. Dad loved football, especially his favorite team the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Martin is survived by his wife Dawn, children Martin Lee Fitchett, Maranda (Tim) Fitchett, and Mark (Mallory) Fitchett, grandchildren Hunter, Braden, Payton, Payge, Madisyn, Gavin and Gunner, siblings Peggy (Bobby) Bohi and Mike Fitchett and beloved canine companion, Ginger.
