Jimmie Martin, Jr., 1930-1996

Jimmie Martin, Jr., familiar to many at the Mesa Lab as the building's security manager, died on 23 August after experiencing complications from recent surgery. Since early 1995, Jimmie had managed the security staff deployed at NCAR through American Patrol & Guard. He had been with APG since 1994. "He did a bang-up job," recalls Steve Allerheiligen, former area manager for APG in the firm's Loveland office. "You could always count on Jimmie to help out or to work late hours if needed. You'd never get a 'that's not my job'--you'd always get an answer."

"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
