Steven D. Martin, 51, of Middletown, passed away Saturday, January 15th, 2022. Born in Jersey City, NJ on August 7, 1970, Steve later moved to Middletown, NJ where he graduated from Middletown HS North, met his beautiful wife and became a small-business owner of Made Ya Look Signs. As an avid outdoors man and adventure seeker, Steve enjoyed biking, hiking, kayaking, surfing, time at the beach and riding his "Hardley" Davidson motorcycle. As a proud father of three, he was the quintessential hockey, cheerleading, and soccer Dad. He shared his passion for paintball with his son, playing as teammates for the Defiance NFG. He always put his family's needs, and everyone else's for that matter, in front of his own. He will be fondly remembered as a devoted husband, loving father and compassionate friend.
Although Steve's journey has ended here on Earth, he will be welcomed with open arms by family and friends up above. The memories and moments of him will live on forever in our hearts and minds. We will never forget you.
