"The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively." – Bob Marley

With every life event, we are given the gift of choice. How will we cope with this? Will we crumble, become hardened, or grow? Can we do what needs to be done, or will we succumb to the call of the easier path? A weak man chooses to remain seated, rather than risk wrath and disapproval by standing up for what's right.

Winston David Martin died Friday, April 9, 2021, after a valiant fight against cancer. He is survived by a village comprised of his loving wife, family, friends, and the community that he cared so much for.

David participated in too many projects, both large and small to mention, but he regretted greatly his inability to shepherd one of his most personally meaningful projects to fruition. The Ocean Beach Veterans Memorial.

We, his village, request that in lieu of flowers, tax exempt donations be sent to:

The Dave Martin Memorial Fund: OB Veterans Plaza

C/O The Peninsula Alliance

PO Box 60534

San Diego, CA 92166


nonprofit 501c3

or you can use the following link:

Dave Martin Memorial Fund: OB Veterans Plaza

A private memorial will be held as Covid restrictions allow.
