Jerry Martin was born on September 26, 1936, in Glencoe, Minnesota. He was the son of Clem and Hilda (Pinske) Martin. Jerry was baptized as an infant on October 18, 1936, at St. Paul’s Evangelical Church in Plato, Minnesota, and was later confirmed in his faith as a youth on May 7, 1950, at First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Glencoe, Minnesota. He received his education in Glencoe, Minnesota, and was a graduate of the Glencoe High School Class of 1954.
On September 26, 1954, Jerry was united in marriage to Myra Graupmann in Hamburg, Minnesota. Jerry and Myra made their home in the Glencoe area. Their marriage was blessed with four children, Lisa, David, Doug and Nancy. Jerry and Myra have shared over 61 years of marriage.
Jerry farmed in rural Biscay, but always had an idea to start a hunting club. In 1991, he made his vision a reality and opened Major Avenue Hunt Club where hunters could come to practice shooting, meet for a meal and of course, hunt!
Jerry enjoyed fishing and playing cards. He was a jokester and loved to visit with anyone he’d meet.
Jerry passed away on Friday, November 6, 2015, at his home in Glencoe, Minnesota, at the age of 79 years, 1 month and 10 days.
Blessed be his memory.
