Martin was born on May 18, 1931, in Remsen Iowa. He was the son of John P. and Katherine Schreiner. He attended St. Mary’s Catholic School in Remsen, Iowa. Martin served in the U.S Army from January 19, 1953 to December 1, 1954, in Korea. During his enlistment, one of his fondest memories was making several trips delivering toys and supplies to the orphanage in Korea, which gave him great joy.

After returning from the service, he married his sweetheart, Marie Stodden on January 14, 1956. He started farming in the Remsen and Maurice area until 2015, at which time he retired. In 2018, he and his wife moved to Bavarian Meadows in Remsen Iowa.

Music, dancing, playing cards, and fishing were some of his greatest passions. Martin had a special talent playing his accordion to entertain his family and friends.

He was grateful to share his life with his wife, Marie of 62 years, his children and their spouses.
