Cary Travis Martin: Loris

1954 – 2023

     Cary Travis Martin of Loris passed away on March 18 at Conway Medical Center following a courageous battle. He was 69.

     Born Feb. 16, 1954, in Loris, he was the son of the late Henry Leon Martin and the late Eunice Pearl Edwards Martin.

     Mr. Martin obtained his Master of Education degree and taught at Marion Intermediate and Green Sea Elementary Schools until his retirement. In his personal life he was a poet, a writer, and a musician. Mr. Martin was also an avid runner, competing in many marathons, he enjoyed cycling, and studied martial arts, obtaining a double black belt in his discipline. He served his Lord and Savior as a youth leader, pastor, and missionary, making four trips to build schools in Haiti and Mexico. Locally, he founded Cows for Christ Farms in Loris and donated all proceeds to the Jewish Voice Ministry. Mr. Martin dearly loved his church family at Advancing The Kingdom Church in Conway.

     Loving Travis was easy, and he will be most remembered as a wonderful husband, father, papa, brother, and friend to all who were blessed to have known him.
