Obituary for Charles E. Martin, Jr.
On Saturday, March 19, 2022, God called one of his cherished children home to be with him. He will be truly missed beyond words, but God was ready for him to take a seat by him in Heaven.

Charles Edward “Boo” or “Katy” Martin Jr, was born on February 9, 1978, to Charles and Linda Martin Sr. He attended Amelia County High School, where he excelled in football and graduated in 1996.

He was baptized June 5, 2011, at Branches Runn Baptist Church. He was a member of the Men’s Ministry where he served as president and a member of the Ushers’ Ministry where he also served as president. He served God faithfully until his unexpected death.
