May 12, 1949 - October 16, 2017
Michael "Mikey" Martin, 68, passed away peacefully October 16, 2017 at his home in Prospect, Oregon surrounded by his family and friends. Mikey was born May 12, 1949 in Orange County, California to Betty Clark and Bob Martin. He spent most of his life living in Southern California until the death of his mother in 2000. At that time, he came to live in Prospect with his sister and brother-in-law, Vicki and Steve Rucker.
Mikey loved to do yard work like weed eating, raking, and anything to do with yard maintenance. He also loved to collect anything to do with transportation, planes, trains, and automobiles. He had quite a collection of Hot Wheels and WWII model aircraft. He was also an animal lover. There was never a dog or cat that didn’t like him. He was dubbed the "Pied Piper of animals."
Mikey was preceded in death by his mother and father; uncle, Jim Mills; and niece, Dawn Hubbard. He is survived by his sister, Vicki Rucker; aunt, Anna Mills; and several cousins, nieces, nephews, and grand-nephews.
Mikey will be dearly missed and will be in our hearts forever.
A memorial service will be held at the Prospect Nazarene Church and will be announced at a later date.
