It all started when...

Larry W Martin was born to Harold and Patricia Martin (you know them as Hop & Pat) on November 15th, 1961.

Larry

Larry was the eldest of four boys.

Larry, Terry (Tig), Gary & Jesse.

When Larry was twelve years old, he and the twins went deer hunting in their back yard. With sticks and rocks. Larry hid in a tree above a deer trail with a stick he had sharpened himself. Gary and Terry hid nearby, armed with rocks and additional wood-based weaponry. When an impressive buck passed through the trail, Larry dropped onto its back and attacked, while the boys leaped out of their hiding places. The deer got away.

Dad soon started working at his grandpa's gas station so he could save up for his first rifle.

In 2009...

Larry received a liver transplant, saving his life. As a family, we strongly encourage everyone to consider organ donation. We can not overstate how precious and valued those extra years were to all of us.
