Christian Martin Obituary


Christian David Martin passed away peacefully in his sleep in the early morning hours of March 2, 2024, after a short, courageous battle with Stage 4 Melanoma. Chris, as he preferred to be called, was born on Christmas 1992 and is the son of David and Dale Martin of Sudbury, VT. 

He attended Sudbury Country School and was a 2011 graduate of Otter Valley. While at OV, he completed and excelled in Stafford Technical Center’s Information Technology program. Chris was on the lacrosse and football teams, did a lot of fishing, and was most proud of being a founding member of the Rutland Area First Robotics team- iBots 2370. It was his love of technology and desire to become a pilot that led him to further his education at the Aviation Institute of Maintenance in Duluth, GA.  Chris graduated in 2015, Summa Cum Laude, as an Aviation Maintenance Technician and was inducted into the National Honor Society- Alpha Beta Kappa. 

While in Georgia, he fell in love with the climate, especially the lack of cold weather. He was awaiting job openings at airports in warmer climates, when he stumbled on a job that he absolutely loved at Asset Recovery Associates. Here he retrieved heavy equipment, expensive cars, motorcycles, and an occasional yacht. The warm climate also allowed Chris many glorious hours of riding his motorcycle.  

Chris is survived by his parents of Sudbury; 2 sisters-Sue Martin and Leanna Martin (Lenny) of Sudbury; 2 brothers-Luke Martin (Sudbury) and Steven Rooney (Stephanie) of Rutland Town. He is survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins and 6 nieces and nephews; and by his lifelong best friend Danielle Hadley. Chris will also be missed by his southern family at Asset Recovery Associates. He was predeceased by his sister Melanie Rooney. 

There will be services to honor Chris’s life on March 16th, at Miller & Ketcham Funeral Home in Brandon, at 11:00 AM. Following the service the family will receive friends at Brandon American Legion for a time of remembrance. In lieu of flowers, Chris would love it if you contributed to Rutland Area First Robotics c/o Dan Roswell.  8 Stratton Road, Rutland, VT 05701.
