Clifford Hilton Martin, 90, loving father and proud US Army veteran, went home to be with the Lord in his sleep at his residence on the morning of July 5, 2021. Clifford was born on June 7, 1931 to his parents William and Pearl Martin-Ware in Minco, Oklahoma.
Clifford, a longtime resident of Yukon, Oklahoma, proudly served his country during the Korean War, where he was subjected to and recovered from a bomb blast. He would go on to achieve several medals for his service, including the Army of Occupation Medal, the Combat Infantry Badge, and the Korean Service Medal with five bronze stars. A patriot through and through, Clifford loved his country and everything it stands for. After his service, Clifford enjoyed a 50-year career as a truck driver. He was always lending a helping hand and offering up kind smiles and stories to anyone who would listen. He enjoyed collecting keys, and was often found tinkering around in his garage or working in the yard. A devoted man of faith, he attended and served at the House of Restoration Church in Yukon. Clifford also enjoyed deer hunting, fishing and watching western movies. He will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him and loved him.
Clifford is survived by his wife, Maryla Martin; his only son and daughter-in-law, Danial and Tammy Martin; seven grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and his brothers Charles and Noel Martin. He is preceded in death by his parents William H. Martin and Pearl Martin-Ware, and 15 brothers and sisters.
