Tribute & Message From The Family

Stan Martin Delhi Stan Evans Martin was born on January 16, 1980 in Delhi, Louisiana. He entered Heaven's Gate on January 13, 2018, just three days before his 38th birthday. Stan was the son of Tammy Evans Edwards and Greg Martin. Growing up in Delhi, he was known as somewhat of a rebel--always testing the limits and trying new things. He was a class of 1998 graduate of Downsville High School in Downsville, Louisiana where he could be found on the baseball field with his brothers playing first base. Baseball was important to Stan's family and they all shared a great love for the game. Stan was actually named after the St. Louis Cardinal player, Stan Musial, and consequently nicknamed "Stan the Man". Not long after graduation, Stan met the love of his life, Amanda Leigh Rodden. The two were married on September 2, 2000 in Delhi. They were blessed with a son, Cayden, in 2001 and a daughter, Anna Kate, in 2005. They made their home in Delhi, where he trained as a brick mason with Don and Dennis Williams for several years before starting his own business, Martin Masonry, in 2009. Stan took great pride in his work and his many devoted employees were a true testament to his role as a great leader. Aside from work, Stan enjoyed cooking out and entertaining friends with Amanda, training his dog, Tebow, and watching his children participate in various activities--most especially Anna Kate dancing and Cayden playing baseball. He was very proud of his kids. Recently, he and Amanda developed a love for working out and lifting weights together. One of his greatest joys was hunting and fishing. Stan loved spending time in the woods, most especially Campbell Swamp, with his dad, son, brothers, cousins, and friends and there are countless stories about the many adventures they all had the one time Stan got lost at the Tensas refuge when he and some family and friends were hunting at the beloved Martin Family Red Camp. Stan was an entertainer at heart and loved to talk and make others laugh. He had an uncanny talent of being able to impersonate random people and make the whole room laugh a good ol' belly laugh with his joking around. He was known for his kind spirit and ability to leave you with a smile. Stan was a strong believer in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and throughout his life he was able to make many friends and touch many lives. He will be greatly, deeply, and dearly missed. Stan is preceded in death by his grandparents Betty (Nonna) and Ray (Honey) Evans and Betty (Bees) and James (Pop) Martin. He is survived by his wife Amanda, son Cayden, daughter Anna Kate, mother Tammy Edwards and stepfather Tommy, father Greg Martin, sister Erin Smith and husband Brad, brother Judd Martin and wife Kellie, brother Wade Martin and wife Amye, step grandfather Dr. George D.
