Roddy was a great man. I lived next door to the Martin's for several years in Sunset Acres. So sorry for your loss. You are all in my prayers. Debbie Taylor Williams, Keithville, LA

Evelyn Ann & Mary Helen, Connie and I are so sorry for the passing of Roddy and his presence among you. All of the years growing up and being with y'all at Aunt Dot's are memories flooding through our minds. May God's peace comfort you. Linda Lewis & Harold; Connie & Mary Beth Ohlig.

We are so sorry for your loss. We remember all the good times like going to the State Fair and all the visits to different states where Uncle Martin was stationed when we were all kids. Remembering how we all slept in one bed and Roddy told us not get up in the night because he had a pet alligator under his bed. We didn't get up.

The Final Salute

“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.

This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to Roddy Carl Martin our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Roddy. And to Roddy it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the devoted and selfless service he rendered to his country during the Vietnam War while serving in the U.S. Air Force. Roddy, we commend you for your honorable service. You are a true patriot, who served with honor and distinction. You upheld the finest qualities of an American patriot warrior: courage, commitment, generosity, sacrifice, love and devotion to family and country. You were a true friend. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace.

On behalf of the 1,261 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion and the 233 veterans of VFW Post 2238 in Shreveport, Louisiana, we extend our sympathies and our condolences to Roddy's family and loved ones.

My wife Carolyn and I send our deepest sympathies on Roddy's loss. I faintly remember him, when I was very young. I have moving pictures of him taken on 8mm film back from his Sunset Acres days. What a wonderful life, and an honorable military career. May he rest in peace beneath the starry skies.

Mary Helen, Evelyn Ann and all of the rest of the family, I'm so sorry to hear of Roddy's passing. I know it has been a long illness and can sincerely appreciate what you have been through. I'll never forget growing up next door to the "Big Kids" and wanting to be a big kid, too.
