Chad Martin, age 52, was called home by the Lord on Thursday, December 24, 2020. Services are pending. Chad was born on June 6, 1968 to Pauline and Richard Martin. Chad was raised in Chaparral Park outside of Macheca, TX. He attended Buda Elementary and graduated from Hays High School in 1986. Chad went on to join the United States Army. Afterwards, he earned his degree in Mortuary Science at the Institute of Funeral Services in 1990. Chad loved to bring joy to everyone. He enjoyed performing in plays, movies and through his work in the TGRA. Chad has a brick that is dedicated to him from his fundraising performances for the St. Christopher House in Austin, TX. He was such a Texas boy through and through that he had to have a tattoo of the Texas flag on his upper right arm.

Survivors include: his mother, Pauline Daniel, two brothers; Bubba (Barbara) Martin and Kelly (Belinda) Martin, his sister; Mindy Michelle (Christian) Clark, his nieces/nephews; Tawny Chad (Abed) Monawar, Will Martin, Laci (Scotty) Teems, Madison (Kendal) Clark, Mandi (Carter) Bell, Jack (Catherine) Martin, Trey Martin and Bridgette Martin, and his great nieces/nephews.

Many years ago I met Chad when I lived in Austin Colony. He lived a couple of houses away and we burned up that sidewalk. He had many struggles and many burdens but he still had a huge capacity to love and had a big old heart. Whether it was a trip to Winnie, the coast or even Vegas he embraced life. To his family and numerous family of friends I offer condolences. He was one of a kind and I smile when I see these pictures. I can hear that laugh. Sometimes those who love the hardest suffer silently. We all knew him and we all loved him and we all wish him peace. My love to you all.
