Robert Andrew Martin

Robert Andrew Martin, 92, went to be with his Lord on November 13, 2019 at White Oak Manor in Kings Mountain, NC. He was surrounded by family.  He was born July 27, 1927 in Springfield, MA to the late Walter and Laura (Chamberland) Martin. He was a 1944 graduate of Wilbraham Academy and attended the University of Notre Dame and received his Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees from American International College.  He served in the U.S.  Army during the Korean War. He married his sweetheart Ardith Cattermole at St. Mary’s Church, Longmeadow on June 5th, 1954. He had a successful, long career as a Manufacturer’s Representative for several different companies, but balanced that with a rich family lifestyle. He was a member of the Holden Chapel, Gideon’s International and the Worcester Country Club.

“Bob” Martin was an energetic and enthusiastic soul who enjoyed life to the fullest. He loved with his whole heart and was loved in return by many. He loved sports, particularly his beloved Red Sox and attended many a game at Fenway.  Although he enjoyed watching the Red Sox, he would forfeit that to play a round of golf.  He loved his family and friends more than life itself, but more than these, he loved his Lord.

He is survived by his beloved wife, Ardith, his three children, Ardie Henry and her husband John of Dunstable, MA, Greg Martin and his wife Bridget of Kings Mountain, NC , and Heather Farrington and her husband Kurt of Worcester, MA; 9 grandchildren Ryan and Eryn Henry; Kirsten, Drew, Alex, Brody Martin and Ariel Plath; and Nichole and Andrew Farrington. He is also survived by 3 nieces; Chris Ann Porter, Pamela Cardaci and Trish Ray.

He is predeceased by his daughter, Angela, his son, Jeffrey, his sister, Rita Lovett and his brother, William Martin.

Memorial services will be held in Holden, Massachusetts at a later date.
