Chuck Martin 1936-2021

Charles Henry “Chuck” Martin, 84, passed away Sunday, Jan. 3, 2021, at his home, surrounded by family.

He was born Aug. 25, 1936, in Seneca, to John and Merwina Martin, who preceded him in death. He had nine siblings.

His wife of 62 years, Beverly Martin, preceded him in death.

He was survived by eight kids, Charlie (Julia), Jenny (Josh), Theresa (Steve), John (Vonnie), Patty (Scott), Chrissy (Chris), Tim (Jeni) and Fran; 22 grandkids; 47 great-grandkids; and two great-great-grandkids.

He was a handyman. He loved tinkering with stuff in the garage, taking care of his chickens, hunting and fishing, and being around his family every Sunday. He was a devout Catholic and attended Assumption Catholic Church in Topeka for many years with his brother Leroy. He never missed a KU game, even if it was on the radio.

Private celebration of life and graveside services will be held at a later date.
