Keith Andrew "Andy" Martin, 59, of West Manchester, Ohio, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Tuesday, August 11, 2020.
He was born on March 8, 1961, in Dayton, Ohio, the late Donald L. and Violet M. (Smith) Martin.
Andy served his country honorably in the United States Navy. He was a member of AMVETS Post 726 in Eldorado, Ohio. Andy was handy with his hands and was a carpenter by trade. From floors to framing, if it was made out of wood, he could make it, fix it, or build it. Many years of exhibiting his talent earned him the nickname "Handy Andy". When he wasn't working, he enjoyed fishing, family and friends. He was a kind man who would help anyone he could.
Andy is survived by his wife of six years, Janice (Cole) Martin, whom he married on August 8, 2014; his stepchildren, Chad Wright of Greenville, Ohio, and Angela Hendrix, and her husband Jason, of West Manchester; his sisters, Valerie Biggs and her husband Gary, of Indian Lake, Ohio, and Victoria Blanchard and her husband Wil, of Texas; his brother and sister-in-law, Mark and Linda Boyer of Wayne Lakes, Ohio; and his nieces, Angie and Sarah. Andy also leaves behind countless other nieces, nephews, friends and his dog Shadow.
Private graveside services will be held at the convenience of the family.
