Ronald E. "Ronnie" Martin



Ronald E. Martin (“Ronnie”), 73 of Lovingston, passed away Friday, October 21, 2022, at his residence.  Born March 13, 1949, in Lynchburg, VA, he was the son of the late Homer T. Martin and Marion Christine Mays Martin of Tye River.

Ronnie was a retired painting contractor with Spectrum Painting and Wallcovering.  He was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather to his family.

Ronnie enjoyed fishing, hunting, golfing, but most of all spending time with his family and friends.  He never met a stranger and was always eager to crack a joke to see you smile.  He was always patient, kind and giving.

He is predeceased by his wife of 47 years Carolyn P. Martin, brothers, Harold T. Martin, Kenneth W. Martin, and Steve F. Martin. 

He is survived by his devoted daughter, Kimberly Martin Moore; devoted grandchildren, Martin N. Moore, and Mary Beth Moore, as well as several nieces and nephews.
