Gregory Louis (Greg) Martin

1922 - 2018 Obituary Condolences
Gregory (Greg) Louis Martin

- September 1, 1922 to September 2nd, 2018

Greg Martin husband, father, engineer, inventor, and proud veteran of World War II passed away peacefully at his home in Meridian, Idaho, on September 2, 2018. He was preceded in death by his parents Yvonne and Orestes, brother Edward, sister Irene Rushenberg, and son Gregory Jr.

He is survived by his wife of 70 years, Stephanie; his two daughters, Maria Trampe of Meridian ID (Steve) and Yvonne Martin-Kidd of Nashville TN (Ron); his three grandchildren, Gina Whitney Hottle of Denver CO (Jeff), Lauren Scott of Eagle ID (Lee), and Margaret Kidd of Evanston IL. He also leaves behind four great-grandchildren and a bevy of nieces and nephews whom he cared for deeply.

With Bachelors and Masters degrees in physics from the University of Minnesota, Greg was a true engineer and inventor, earning five patent awards during his 25-year career in research and development at Goodyear Aerospace in Litchfield AZ. Importantly, he put those inventing skills to work at home, most notably for his highly functional modifications of automobiles and scooters to accommodate his travel adventures across the US and, in his later years, around his neighborhood.
