Bill Martin made my life happy. I will never forget him for doing that. When I was young, I had an assignment to write about, who your hero in life was. Uncle Bill was my hero. The world is missing an amazing, once in a lifetime person. I feel so happy to have had him in my life.

Dr. Martin was my principal in 1987 Princeton Jr. High School. I never knew he was a Marine. I served in the Marine Corps. He was such a great man and leader. Dr. Martin inspired all of us to be better. He will be missed. RIH Marine!! Semper Fi!!
