Obituary

Worden, MT: Tom E. Martin, 96, died May 11, 2020 in Billings.

The son of George and Lena Martin, Tom was born June 16, 1923 in Lewistown, MT. He attended Fergus County Schools. Tom was at Pearl Harbor, on that fateful day in 1941. He served his country in the Navy during WWII. He was assigned to the Naval Armed Guard aboard the Merchant Marine ship, USS Goode. In 1947, he met, Pauline Fuerstenau, and they spent the rest of their lives together. From this union came a son and four daughters.

Tom worked road construction for several companies. He was a superintendent for Arkwright Construction, Zook Brother’s, Schultz & Lindsay, Schultz & Meyer, and finally Meyer Construction. He worked mainly in Montana, but also spent time on jobs in Wyoming, N. Dakota, and California. In 1975 Tom settled his family in Worden. He retired in 1985. Tom loved hunting, fishing, and camping. After his retirement, he and Polly became “snowbirds” and spent many winters in Arizona. He became an avid gardener after retirement also. Friends and family always enjoyed his smoked meats and jerky. He even learned how to do canning in his later years. Tom enjoyed reading and playing cards. He liked fixing things and was always looking for a project to do. He said the secret to a long life was eating bacon, smoking cigars and drinking Scotch.

Tom is survived by his daughter Cherie (Wayne) Freeman, Ogden, UT, 10 granddchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. His sister Betty (Nick) Cerovski of Lewistown, MT also survives him.

Tom was preceded in death by his parents, one sister, Francis, his “lady” Polly and his son, Mike and daughters Ruth, Zoe, and Pat.

The family wants to thank our extended family Linda & Gary Adams, and Pat Calarchik for their continued love and care of Tom. We also thank the staff of Tender Nest for his care over the past year.

No memorial service is planned at this time. In lieu of flowers please donate to VFW Post 7407 Worden, MT or a charity of your choice.
