Webster, MA – Nelson R. (Sonny) Martin passed away on Sunday, March 5th at the age of 91 while in the care of Webster Manor.
He was born in Webster, the son of the late Nelson R. and Elin Martin. His wife of 62 years, Maureen A. “Dwyer” Martin passed away in 2018. He was predeceased by siblings and their spouses: Claire & David Austin, Richard ‘Dickie’ Martin, Joseph Miskiewicz, Doris & Bob Norcross, and Shirley Lee, great friends Joan Allen, Bill Celko, Bill and Claire Labby, and Frank and Anita Socha. He is survived by his sister Esther Miskiewicz (Dudley) and sister-in law Marcia Martin (Pomfret), great friends Dave Allen, Jackie Celko as well as his daughter Nancy, her husband Len, and favorite granddaughter Krystyanna Ramsdell (Millbury).
He proudly served in the United States Navy as 1st Class Petty Officer on the U.S.S. Pittsburgh during the Korean Conflict. He worked at George Meyer Company in West Boylston for over 30 years and SmartFoods for several years until his retirement. He enjoyed visiting with family, dancing with his wife, the Ramsdell dogs (especially sharing cupcakes with his namesake Nelly), Elin’s Swedish Meatballs, Aunt Helen’s cookies, welding/gifting his figurines, and always had a pocket full of jokes at the ready. He had many friends, nieces, nephews, and godchildren whom he cherished and adored and who will remember him as a most affable guy.
A private gathering will be held at a later date. The Shaw-Majercik Funeral Home, 48 School Street, Webster MA has been entrusted with his arrangements. A guest book is available at www.shaw-majercik.com where you may post a condolence or light a candle.
Donations can be made in his name to Auburn Elks Chapter #2118 in Honor of the Quilts of Valor, which he was awarded in 2016.
