Martin William Cummings Obituary
Cummings, Martin William
Martin William Cummings, 89, was born February 17, 1928 in Torrington, CT, the fourth child of Sallie Winslow and Martin Cummings.
He attended schools in Wallingford and Meriden, CT and spent two years at Quinnipiac College before transpiring to George Washington University, D.C., where he graduated in 1950.
He joined Payne Weber Jackson and Curtis in Hartford, working there until contracting meningococcal meningitis in 1960; suffering speech and locomotion loss, his recuperation took some months and he spent them at his sister's home at Andrew Air Force Base. While there he met Dr. Robert Stevenson, became his partner, and they observed their 57th anniversary in Santa Fe this year.
In Washington, Martin was active in real estate and was associated with J.F. Begg Co. and Mary White, Inc., until he and Stevenson retired and moved to Santa Fe, NM in 1993. In addition to his partner, he is survived by several nephews; all of his siblings having predeceased him.
Cremation has taken place, and according to his wishes no funeral and memorial services will be conducted. He asked that any remembrances take the form of local support for pet neutering charities.
