Martin Leon Burnham, of Bridgton, passed away on Nov. 7, 2012, at the Bridgton Memorial Hospital. He was 73.

Martin was the only child of Franklin R. and Celesta Merrow Burnham, who predeceased him. Martin was a former resident of Portland and South Portland.

For the past 32 years he lived at the Good Neighbors Home in Bridgton, where he was very popular with the residents and staff. 'Marty' had a keen sense of humor loving to tease and joke around. Often, when annoyed by staff, he would suddenly announce 'you're fired!'

He had a passion for hamburgers, fries and chocolate milk. He loved his videos of Little House on the Prairie, The Walton's, John Wayne and Gene Autry.

In his younger years, Martin remarkably could name every make of car on the road which later led to his collecting small model cars. He also liked anything to do with trains.

He was very interested in history and past presidents with a favorite being Jack Kennedy. Marty enjoyed his mini vacations, day trips, Sea Dogs and Red Sox games and was always happy with visits from family members.

Interment was held at Brooklawn Memorial Park, Portland.
