Randy Douglas Martin

LAKE PLACID - Randy Douglas Martin, 59, of 41 Colden Avenue, passed away unexpectedly Thursday, Dec. 12, 2013, at his home. Born March 6, 1954, in Nyack, N.Y., he was the son of the late Gloria and Eugene Martin Sr. of Lake Placid. He attended Lake Placid High School, as well as University of New Haven.

Randy was currently employed as a bartender at Lake Placid Pub and Brewery. Previous employment included painting, cooking, construction, waiter, and working for the 1980 Olympic Committee. He loved to volunteer for many local sporting events, including N.C.A.A., E.C.A.C., and U.S.A. Hockey Tournaments.

During his high school years, Randy played hockey, football, and baseball. He also played for Lake Placid Express Soccer Club, along with his younger brother, John. His interests were walking around Mirror Lake, visiting with friends and people on Main Street. He was an avid sports fan, following all disciplines of Lake Placid High School sports, as well as C.V.A.C. Football. He was infamous for knowing scores and stats from around the state. Randy enjoyed going with friends to enjoy the wildlife of the Adirondacks. One of his longest pastimes was bird-watching. He was a dog-lover, often seen with his black lab, Maggie, and Butch, Lori, and Lorissa's dog, Hunter. He was a gentle soul, known to everyone in the community, and was a friend to all.

Randy is predeceased by his parents, Gloria and Eugene R. Sr.; and younger brother, John. He is survived by his brother, Butch and his wife Lori, and their daughter, Lorissa, of Lake Placid; his brother, Tom and his wife Debra, and their children, Derrik and Nicole; as well as his great-nephew, Jake William of Pearl River, N.Y.

Calling hours will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 17, at M.B. Clark Funeral Home, Lake Placid. A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 18, at St. Eustace Episcopal Church, 2450 Main Street, Lake Placid. Rev. David Ousley will officiate.
