James W. Martin

James W. Martin passed away Jan. 4, after a courageous two and one half-year battle against cancer.

Jim was born in Crawford, Neb., on Nov. l6, 1936. His family later moved to the family ranch north of Lusk where he was raised.

In 1956, he and his older brother, Virgil, enlisted in the U.S. Navy together. They remained together throughout their military career, with both becoming structural steelworkers with the Seabees. They spent most of their service with MCB 10 and 11 in Guam. After his discharge from the Navy, he continued in that career field. He retired from Point Mugu after 30 years of service in January 1992.

He is survived by his loving wife of 48-years, June; daughter and son-in-law, Belinda and Tom Gow; grandchildren, Jennifer and Joseph Gow; sisters, Sue Bartlett of Ogena, Wis., and Vickie Kennedy and her husband Gale of Casper, and brother Bill and his wife Kris of Lusk.

He was preceded in death by his parents Virgil and Anna Martin, brother Virgil Jr. and sister Virginia.

Memorial services were held at 11 a.m. on Jan. 13 at James A Reardon Mortuary in Oxnard. A reception followed at the Oxnard Moose Lodge.

Donations in Jim's memory may be made to the American Cancer Society.
