Antone Martin, Jr., age 91, of Dartmouth, passed away on Thursday, December 29, 2016 at St. Luke's Hospital. He was the loving husband of Kathleen A. (Openshaw) Martin with whom he would have shared 70 years of marriage on January 4, 2017.

Born in Dartmouth and lifelong resident, he was the son of the late Antone and Mary (Concellum) Martin.

He received an Associate's Degree in Criminal Justice from Bristol Community College.

Tony as he liked to be called served proudly as a Police Officer with the Dartmouth Police Department for 33 years, attaining the rank of Sergeant at the time of his retirement.

Kathleen as he always refered to her was the love of his life. He was never very far from his beloved Kathleen. They found great joy in simple things and in their time together. Many of their days ending in a game of gin rummy or sitting on the back porch watching the sun set. Tony was a talented handyman who had unique skills in repairing just about anything for family and friends of which he was very proud. When in need of a part he would dig into his garage or many times take a ride to the "shop" as he called it always coming up with something. He enjoyed fishing, tinkering around his home, watching the Red Sox and Patriots and loved his 1972 John Deere tractor. Tony was a devoted family man who loved being with and caring for his grandchildren, great-grandchildren and would lend a helping hand to anyone in need of assistance.

Surviving in addition to his wife are three sons, Larry Martin and wife Mabel, Ken Martin and wife Angela and Mike Martin and wife Sue; seven grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
