Martin was born May 22, 1971 in Portland, Oregon to Edward Dennis Lowe and Anita Lowe.
As a youth, Martin attended Joseph Meek Elementary School, along with Whittaker Elementary. In 1989 Martin graduated from Jefferson High School, a school he was so proud to attend. As a child, Martin loved to go fishing, fly kites with his father, Dennis and like any other kid, he loved to set off fireworks on the fourth of July. In 1987, his father took him up to Seattle, Washington to attend an All-Star basketball game. They sat way up in the nosebleeds, but Martin didn’t complain one bit. He had the time of his life watching the game, the slam dunk contest and even attending the gala the day before.
Over the years, Martin worked at a few different jobs. He worked at the airport, Emmanuel Hospital and ultimately made it to his last job at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
As he got older, he never lost sight of what he loved to do, which was write poetry. He wrote many poems and shared them on Facebook for his friends and family to read. His musical selection was anywhere from old R&B to Rap, and he made many CD mixes over the years.
You couldn’t tell him a thing when it came to his Dallas Cowboys! He loved to watch sports, but when those Cowboys were playing, it was like Christmas morning! He also enjoyed watching General Hospital, which his oldest daughter Myesha would tease him about every chance she got…
One of the best things about Martin was his personality. He was always so funny and it brought him joy to make people laugh. His laugh was contagious, his smile infectious. If you ever spent time with him, then you know he loved to take pictures with you, and of you. Especially if he could catch you off guard looking a fool. You could always count on him for a good time!
If you knew Martin, then you knew how much he loved his family: his parents, Dennis and Anita, and especially his four children, Myesha, Malakai, Danaya and Timothy. He would speak highly of them and show off pictures to anyone he could. He was so proud of the young women and men they were becoming.
Martin made a huge impact on everyone around him, and at the young age of 47, he left us way too soon.
He will be missed tremendously.
