"Jimmie was a tremendous asset to our security team," says Dean Lindstrom (Facilities Support Services), "but more importantly, he was a kind and wonderful human being. He was my friend and I'm going to miss him."
"I knew Jimmie for 21 years, and he was like the father that I never had," says Barry Mosley, former NCAR security manager for APG. "He was one of the sweetest men I've ever known. I will miss him dearly."
Born in Wichita, Kansas, Jimmie was a licensed mortician in Colorado, Kansas, and Texas and a deputy coroner for Boulder County. He had served as the chief of police in Holly and as a state highway patrolman. Jimmie was a past president of the Colorado High Schools Umpire Association of Southeast Colorado.
Services were held on 27 August in Cimarron, New Mexico. A memorial ceremony was held at the Mesa Lab's Damon Room on 12 September. Contributions may be made to a memorial fund in the name of Jimmie Martin, Jr., in care of Barry Mosley, Box 336, Lafayette, Colorado 80026. BH
