He was born February 13, 1938, at Moko, Arkansas, to James Almone “Al” Martin and Juanita Beatrice Chestnut Martin. He enjoyed a great life the Ozarks has to offer. He was a simple strong man, an avid quail hunter. Berylee was a long time resident of West Plains; he was always ready to share a cup of coffee and shoot the bull.
He is survived by his children, Tony Martin, West Plains, Missouri and Jessie Legan, husband, Chris, Springfield, Missouri; four grandchildren, Timmy Squires, West Plains, Missouri, Anthony Martin, West Plains, Missouri, Tonya Martin, stationed at Fort Leonard Wood and Jay Legan, Springfield, Missouri; one brother, Jerry Martin and Family, Prairie Village, Kansas.
His parents, one sister, Alverna Martin and one niece, Kelly Martin, precede him in death.
