Celebrating life of Lt. Greg Martin

Family from San Diego and Philadelphia joined local golfing friends to celebrate the life of Lt. Greg Martin, son of Pagosa Springs resident Susan Martin, at Boss Hogg’s on Aug. 1. Greg died at age 37 on Jan. 17 from complications resulting from cancer, less than a week after marrying his sweetheart, Shannon. He was a Navy man through and through, having joined in August 1992 and served his country in many parts of the world including Bangkok, Singapore and Iraq. Following in their mother’s footsteps, Greg and his brother, Gary, became avid golfers, both single-digit handicappers. This tribute to Greg’s life was timed to coincide with the annual two-man best-ball tournament at the Pagosa Springs Golf Club because the brothers often played in this event. Surrounded by family and friends are (left to right), Greg’s wife Shannon, his brother, Gary, mother Susan Martin and stepfather Richard Broom.
