MANCHESTER - Justin Peter "JP" Martel, left this world on Oct. 28, 2012.
He was born on March 7, 1974, in Killeen, Texas, the beloved son of Ken and Tish Martel.

He loved the city and became a fierce advocate for social responsibility in all socioeconomic backgrounds.
Members of his family in addition to his parents include his cherished brother, Christian Martel and wife Miranda; he was a fun-loving mentor to nephews, Jackson and Carson Martel; and precious grandson to Lucille Martel.
