Charles Martin, of Mansfield, passed away Thursday, September 30, 2021, at the age of 61. Charlie, affectionately known as “Pa” by his grandchildren, was the owner and operator of Scoreboard Service, Inc. He and his wife, Donna, were married on the pitcher’s mound at an Atlanta Braves game and every year for their anniversary, he made sure they did something special. Charlie was a jack-of-all trades and could work on anything. He said he traded his motorcycle in for his pontoon so he could have all his family and friends enjoy it with him. Charlie was adventurous and enjoyed riding various things like his bikes, motorcycles, and four-wheelers. In addition, he had a special place in his heart for his dogs, Zoe, Sophie, Mr. T., and Little One. Charlie was preceded in death by his parents, Woodie and Jewell Lankford Martin; mother-in-law, Beverly Nelson.
Survivors include his loving wife of 42 years, Donna Martin; daughter, Brandi Norris (Brian Johnson); son, Chad Martin (Jennie); grandchildren, Collin, Griffin, Masin, Korbin, Addyson; brother, Roger Martin (Mary); father-in-law, Larry Nelson (Diane); sister-in-law, Dianna Galloway (Richard); brothers-in-law, Cris Nelson (Debbie), Barry Nelson (Karla); as well as several nieces and nephews.
