Martin Thomas Rutherford • September 25, 2018
Martin lived a long and happy life traveling, camping and fishing with his wife of over 50 years, Martez. But all things come to an end.
He lost his wife in 2015. Then this year Martin got the call from heaven, but being a stubborn Scot, he said “Not now, I’m going camping.” Each time heaven called Martin, he gave the same answer. Then heaven called Martin and told him that in fact, there was camping in heaven.
Martin thought about this, but not for long. So now on Martin’s door is a sign. “Gone Camping, See you later.”
He is survived by his children, nieces and nephews, grandchildren, great grandchildren and even a few great-great grandchildren. We will all miss him, but he will be in our hearts forever.
Visitation will be at Pensacola Memorial Gardens Funeral Home on Friday, September 28, 2018 from 6 to 8pm. The funeral service will be at the funeral home on Saturday, September 29, 2018 at 2pm.
