Bobby Allen Martin, age 73 of Christiansburg, Va. heard his Lord and Savior call him home on January 28, 2022. Born in Pilot, Va. on October 17, 1948 to the late Albert and Beulah Martin. In addition to his parents Bobby was preceded in death by his two sons, Dave Allen Martin and Michael Chris Martin, sister, Shirley Shaver.

Left to carry on his memory is his loving wife and best friend of 50 years, Mary Jane Martin, his daughter and son-in-law, Katonya Martin Bishop (Brian) of Christiansburg, Va., grandchildren, Dallas Martin, Drew King (Allie), Spencer Martin, Ariel Martin, Callie Williams and Cassie Bishop, one great-granddaughter, Ella Martin, brother, Billy Martin (Dorothy) of Radford, Va., sister, Nita Kingrea of Christiansburg, Va., brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Johnny and June Cox of Blacksburg, Va., several nieces and nephews, special companion, Oscar.

Bobby worked hard all his life, but it is what he enjoyed. He could fix anything and find water in the ground with a stick. After getting settled in at his heavenly home I’m sure he was looking for grass to cut.

Funeral Services will be conducted Wednesday, February 2, 2022 at 11:00 am in the Faith Missionary Baptist Church with the Rev. Mike Vest and Rev. Neal Turner officiating. Interment will follow in the Roselawn Memorial Gardens, Christiansburg. The family will receive friends on Tuesday evening from 5-7:00 pm at McCoy Funeral Home 150 Country Club Dr. SW, Blacksburg.
