Obituary of Kenneth C. Martin
Ken was reunited with his bride of 72 years on Tuesday, October 19, 2021 at the age of 92. Ken and Grace were married on May 21, 1948. They were devoted to each other and rarely apart. They built their forever home on Lake Road in Webster, where they raised their 3 children and created countless memories with their family.
Ken was a retiree from the U.S. Postal Service. After retirement Ken continued working at the West Webster Cemetery and as a Tour Guide for Blue Bird and White Star. He and Grace also volunteered working the “Over-Under” Tent every summer at the Webster Carnival. Ken worked well into his late 80’s teaching his family the importance of hard work and dedication, which has been passed down generations.
Ken is survived by his children, John Martin, Bob (Patty) Martin and Annie (David) Bender; his grandchildren, April (Rick) Martin, Barbie (Brandon) Ruffell and USMC Gunnery Sergeant Robert W. “Bobby” (Janet) Martin; step grandchildren, Michele and David (Jean) Lochner; great-grandchildren, Trevor, Jakob, Ruby-Grace, Lily, Adelyn, Tristan, Mary, Tessa and Blaise; step great-grandchildren, Easton, Madie, Nicholas and Katie . The love for Ken and Grace cannot be measured, they were loved fiercely and by many- they will be missed beyond words.
The Martin family would like to thank Dave and Heather Littlefield for opening their hearts to Ken and Grace over the years, always watching over and helping them; the devoted staff of unit 5200 of Rochester General Hospital and Hildebrandt Hospice for the compassionate care Ken received during his final days; and Jeff Scott of Willard H. Scott Funeral Home. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
