Mr. Thomas E. “Tom” Martin, 76, of San Mateo, Calif., went to be with his wife Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2022, at HCA Florida Putnam Hospital in Palatka, Fla. Tom was born in Saxis and had been a resident of San Mateo for the past two months, coming from Temperanceville. He served honorably in the U.S. Army Reserve. He grew up in farming and later worked as a truck driver, hauling produce and chickens. He was a NASCAR fan and enjoyed hunting, fishing, and eating at the Texas Roadhouse. He served others less fortunate than himself by delivering meals he picked up at the food banks in Saxis and Temperanceville. He was a big man with a big heart who loved life. He loved taking trips with his wife to Pennsylvania to visit the Amish markets, bringing back fresh milk and whoopie pies for all he could.
