Obituary for Bruce Martin

Bruce Martin died peacefully February 8, 2020. He was 85 years old. Bruce was born in Brooklyn, NY, October 23, 1934, to Margaret (nee Lenon) and Raymond Martin. Bruce grew up in Wilton, CT, and graduated from the Villanova University in 1956.

He entered the business world upon graduation where he met Sue, whom he married in 1960. Bruce was a loving husband, completely dedicated to his wife and he worked hard his whole life to provide the best possible for her and their son, Chris.

Bruce and Sue loved spending time in and around Harbor Springs, Michigan, Vero Beach, Florida and playing golf and dining with friends at Orchard Lake Country Club. He was a devout and conservative Catholic and deeply religious throughout his life until the very end.
In the last few years of his life, Bruce’s health had taken away his ability to walk and play golf but he never lost the quick-witted and dry humor for what he was known. But his deepest loss was of his beloved wife of 57 years who passed away in May 2018. He is also preceded in death by his brother, Thomas Martin.

Bruce is survived by his son, Christopher, and his grandchildren, Jake and Lane Martin. He is also survived by one sibling, Joan Burke.

A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at St. Hugo of the Hills Stone Chapel, 2215 Opdyke Road, Bloomfield Hills, Friday, March 13, at 11am. Friends may visit in the chapel beginning at 10:30am.

Memorials appreciated to the Solanus Casey Center, 1780 Mount Elliott Street, Detroit, Michigan 48207.
