Rest in peace CT. To his children: your father was a consummate gentleman, such a hard worker! My husband Jack and I met CT as we campaigned really hard to help get our mutual friend John Lewis elected to Congress. CT was very instrumental in John’s success...including helping us host a fundraiser with John and Lillian at our home in Sandy Springs! We hope you feel so proud of your dad. Rest In Peace CT...you deserve this

CT Martin was a genius! He thought strategically and was very philosophical but shared practical advice helping you to make an informed decision. His legacy will live on through all of us he mentored. Condolences to the family, to Councilwoman Andrea Boone and all he influenced. We are all better because of his contributions and his love of community. Rest in power CT. You will be forever missed and never forgotten!

II am saddened to hear the news of my dear CT Martin. He was a mentor, a fierce advocate, and a dear friend. His heart and spirit for justice was big. He understood the struggles and challenges facing African American businesses and communities. Although soft spoken, he was brilliant and bold. Atlanta has lost another of its giants. I will miss him dearly.
