Shreveport, LA - Terry Edward Martin, born November 25, 1948 at Barksdale Air Force Base, passed away on June 8, 2014 after a lengthy illness. A lifelong resident of Shreveport, he worked his entire career at Martin Specialty Coatings, beginning under the tutelage of his father who founded the company and continuing with his brothers until his retirement.

He is survived by a family that he both loved dearly and took pride in helping develop both professionally and personally. That family includes 2 sons, Gregory Edward Martin and wife, Rebecca and Jeffery Wayne Martin; his mother, Rosalie Holman Martin; one sister, Connie Martin Howard and husband, Don; and 3 brothers, Kenneth Wayne Martin and wife, Dena, Stephen Charles Martin and wife, Sue, and Randall Robert Martin and wife, Jeannie. He is also survived by 2 granddaughters, Kylie Martin and Bailey Martin; as well as a host of nieces and nephews.

Terry loved the outdoors and spent nearly all of his life within casting distance of Cross Lake. He raised two sons who are very proud to call him their father and gave them immeasurable life lessons and guidance. His parents raised the entire family to be devout Christians and he was committed to his faith which now allows him to be with his Lord and his beloved father, Edward Fulton Martin.

Visitation and a Memorial service will be held at Lakeview Methodist Church on Saturday, June 21, 2014. Visitation begins at 2:00, followed by the Memorial at 3:00.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be given to either Hub Urban Ministries or the Shreveport Rescue Mission.
