Obituary

James “Jim” Wriston Martin III, 70, of Hollister, passed away on

 October 5, 2022.

 Jim was born on April 10, 1952 in Canton, Ohio. He was a son of the late

James W. Martin Jr., who passed away as the result of an automobile

accident when Jim was 2 years old, and Wanda (Rutter) and Melvin

McKee.

 Before retiring, Jim worked for over 25 years at Lempco Industries in New

Lexington. He was a proud member of the United Steelworkers and

honorably served as a union steward.

 Although some may have considered him stubborn, he was really just a

man living life on his own terms.

 Jim was a strong supporter of the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also enjoyed

cruising the roads less traveled and he loved drinking his “pops”.

 Some of his fondest memories were of the times he spent fishing with his

dad, Melvin, and the family fish-frys that followed.

 He felt a tremendous amount of pride for his daughter Misty and her 29

plus year-career in the United States Navy. He was there at the airport as

she embarked on her career and made sure he was present at every one

of her promotion ceremonies.

 Jim is survived by his daughters U.S. Navy Chief Warrant Officer Misty

Galang and Meagan Martin; granddaughter Madisyn Galang; grandson

Gabriel Martin; brothers Dan Martin and Melvin “Pete” McKee; sisters

Rosemary Benhart and Sandra McKee; good friend Terry Vore; son-in-law

of 20 years Lho Galang; and several nieces and nephews.

 

 Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers Randy and

Steven McKee.
