Donald Eugene "Bub" Martin, Jr., 69, of Waldorf, MD passed away peacefully at his own home on Sunday, May 9, 2021. He was born on March 9, 1952 in Washington, D.C. to the late Donald Eugene Martin, Sr. and Thelma Lenora (Devers) Martin.
Bub met the love of his life, Linda, and they married in 1972 in Lanham, MD. Together they have celebrated over 49 years of marital bliss. Their joyous union was made even more special when they welcomed two sons, Donnie and Daniel.
Bub was a kind and generous man who took wonderful care of his family. He worked as a Master Electrician and retired in 2012 to spend his time with his family. Although retired, he continued his membership with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, as he felt honored to be a skilled electrician.
A true lover of nature, Bub enjoyed spending time outdoors. His favorite place to get away was to his cabin in PA. He would escape the hustle of the everyday and soak in the peace of the great outdoors. Bub appreciated a quiet morning when you could hear the birds sing their gentle songs and the deer ran freely through untouched forests. He was so happy to share this solitude with his family and show his grandchildren the true beauty of nature.
A great man has left the physical world behind, but his family is taking solace in knowing he has been reunited with his family in his cabin in the woods on the other side of the clouds. As you sit back and watch lightening cross the dark skies, know that Bub is sending you a signal that he is healthy, happy and awaiting your arrival when you get to join him on the front porch of his cabin.
Bub is survived by his wife, Linda Martin of Waldorf, MD; sons, Donald Eugene Martin, III of Prince Frederick, MD and Daniel Steven Martin and his wife Keri of Mechanicville, MD, seven (7) grandchildren, Madison, Cory, Ethan, Emma, Brooklynn, Lucas and Elena; siblings, Peggy Sprouse, Susan Appleby, Marilyn DiMarco and Linda Perry; and many nieces, nephews and extended family and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Donald Eugene Martin, Sr. and Thelma Lenora Martin.
The family will receive friends for Bub's Life Celebration on Saturday, May 15, 2021 from 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. with a Time of Reflection at 4:00 p.m. at Brinsfield Funeral Home & Crematory, P.A., 30195 Three Notch Road, Charlotte Hall, MD 20622. Interment will be held privately.
