David was born on February 15, 1928 and passed away on Monday, November 4, 2019.

David was a resident of Cary, North Carolina at the time of passing.

David was born in Seagrove, N.C. to William Lafayette Martin and Euva Perry Martin, but moved to Cary, NC at a young age, a place that he would passionately refer to as the "next best thing to Heaven." Gifted with a remarkable work ethic, the trials of intense childhood poverty prepared him for a life of hard work-- beginning with providing for his widowed mother and 3 siblings, his service to his country in the US Coast Guard, loving and caring for his wife Marilyn and six children, and finally, his faithful and diligent service to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in virtually numberless ways.

He would routinely share the good news of Christ's amazing grace to those imprisoned at Polk Youth Center, the Women's Prison and the Wake County Jail, as well as at the Induction Center in Raleigh, N.C. where young people were beginning their service in the U.S. Military. Family will receive friends and relatives on Sunday evening from 5:00 pm to 8:00pm at the First Baptist Church in Cary.
