August 6, 1942 — March 31, 2022


Larry L. Martin, age 79, of Bristol, Indiana passed away at 1:05p on March 31, 2022, in his sleep with his loving wife by his side.  Larry had a strong love and devotion to the one and only Almighty God.  With Larry’s Christian faith his family takes great comfort in knowing they will see him again in heaven eternal.

Larry was born in Goshen, IN on August 6, 1942, son of Cleo and Harriett L. (Hall) Martin.  Larry married Carrie M. (Borntrager) Mast on August 7, 1993.

Larry graduated from New Paris High School in 1960.  He enjoyed the outdoors, hunting, fishing, and archery were just some of his passions.  Larry’s family was always very important to him. He was instrumental in his young children’s lives as a Scout Master and later as a founding member of the Elkhart County 4-H Goat Club.  Larry took great pride in his 40+ years as a brick mason.  He was also very civic minded, sharing his time; volunteering for the New Paris EMS/Fire Department for 13 years, and as a Mounted Posse member for the Town of Bristol, IN for 10 years.
