Originally named Louis Henry Richard Martin in the German tradition after his Grandfathers, Richard even as an elementary school student had strictly used only Richard Henry Martin as his full name.
He was a devoted son who stood by his parents following the tragic loss of his younger brother Oscar at the age of 9. He married his long time sweetheart Verna Elizabeth Killian on September 10, 1927 and the couple had two sons.
A deeply religous and devoted family man he was the Superintendent of Freidens UCC Sunday School for several years.
In 1944 Richard succumbed to post surgical pneumonia leaving Verna a very young widow and their two young sons with big shoes to fill. Verna never remarried, but by faith and perseverance they maintained their home and family.
