William “Bill” LeRoy Martin was born August 28, 1954, in Charles City, IA, the son of William L. and Opal (Johnson) Martin. He received his education in Nashua and, at age 17, enlisted in the United States Marine Corp. Bill served his country for over 20 years and was honorably discharged as a Staff Sergeant. While serving in the military, he met Barbara MacDonald in Indiana, and the couple was married on December 11, 1976. To this union, their son, Bill, was born.
The couple made Greene, Iowa their home. In their free time, Bill and Barbara loved riding each of their motorcycles together. They also enjoyed fishing, and Bill regrettably was a Denver Bronco fan. Bill began driving truck when they moved to Greene which, he did until the day of his passing.
