Edward John Martin, 52 a resident of Fort Lauderdale FL, formerly of Taunton MA died on Thursday morning with his loving husband by his side. He was the son of the late Alfred L. Martin and Margaret A. Martin. Ed had bravely battled cancer for over 13 years. He was a retired credit manager for various companies during his career.
Ed had a passion for the people and things he loved. He was quick to say I love you to the people in his life that meant so much to him. His love of Provincetown MA, Broadway music, Barbra Streisand, and the playwright Tennessee Williams was legendary among his family and friends. His style, charm and sense of humor always made people feel welcomed and left them with a smile. He will be sadly missed; the sense of emptiness left by his departure from this world will never be filled.
Besides his husband, William F. O’Rourke, he leaves behind his Aunt Ambrosina Martin, whom he adored. He also leaves behind his siblings: Patricia Martin, Kathleen Morrison (Richard), Susan Martin Azul, and Paul Martin (Dulce), his nephews Neil MM Morrison (Paula), Eric Morrison (Emily Treano), Kyle Morrison, Brady Martin and Christian Martin, his great nephew Cole Morrison, and great nieces Avery and Gianna Morrison, and many friends.
Services will be private, with a celebration of Ed’s life for family and friends to be held at a future date in Massachusetts.
