CUSHING – Danny A. Martin, 60, died following a tragic accident while doing what he loved, working on his prized Z28 Camaro.

Born in Rockland, May 6, 1960 he was the son of Gilbert and Marian Laine Martin. Educated locally he was a 1978 graduate of Georges Valley High School.

Following high school, Danny began his career as a self-employed hard working man. For many years he worked as a clammer, digging in the St. George River. In the mid 1980’s he began running an excavator, building his business to become ‘Martin Excavation’. Over the years he has dug countless septic fields, foundations and assisted with home site preparation all across the Mid-Coast.

Always mechanically inclined, Danny could fix just about anything. From a young age he was working on motors, motorcycles and cars. His handy work grew into quite the hobby and was a big part of his life.

As a young man, and only brother to three sisters, Danny was a prankster. He had a great sense of humor and loved to ‘torment’ his sisters. They fondly remembered when he cut a large ‘foot’ out of plywood and made tracks on the front lawn of their home, even breaking a fir tree to convince them of a ‘Big Foot’ encounter. They said, he was however, the best big brother anyone could ask for.

He was a talented individual and loved playing the drums. He always said it was his dream to start a band called ‘Danny and the Martini’s’. Alongside his father, he even built his own home, starting from scratch, saving his money, building each section as he was financially able. Later in life, he ran a sawmill at home to construct boards to build his barn where he could often be found working on a project or a repair of some sort.

He loved being outdoors, whether camping and boating with his family along with close friend Gary Peters and his children, spending time in woods logging with his good friend Freddy Brooks, or snowmobiling up north with friends and family, Danny was happiest outside. Bass fishing was a favorite hobby for he and the boys.

Danny loved all the people in his life fiercely, always giving them a nickname that stuck for years. Even his beloved Weiner Dog ‘Nibbles’ underwent several name changes. When his children were young and living at home, Danny’s home was always the ‘hub’ with extra kids crashing for the night or in tow on family vacations and gatherings. His nieces and nephews were always welcome and could often be found there.

Danny will be sadly missed by all who loved him.

Danny loved his children and would most often do anything to see that they were happy. He was a kid at heart, loved watching cartoons such as SpongeBob Squarepants, Noah recalls him loving the show more than he did.

Predeceased by his father, and an infant daughter Brianna Martin in 1995; Danny is survived by his mother Marian Martin of Thomaston; his three sons, Jesse Martin of Cushing, Noah Martin, Jamie Martin both of St. George; former spouse and the mother of his children Susanne Martin of St. George; his sisters, Debbie Bernard and her husband Rick of Saint George, Shelley Martin and her companion Darren Maxcy of Warren; Jody Martin Brooks and her husband Mark of Cushing; his nieces and nephews, Courtney Young and her partner Josh Faulkingham, Zach Bernard, Kara Dow, Hayley, Erika, Kelsey, and Jillian Brooks; two great-nephews, Avery and Vance Faulkingham; as well as a special Aunt Bette and Uncle Clayton Keizer and cousin Kevin Keizer and family of Cushing.

Due to COVID restrictions, Danny will be laid to rest at a later date at Norton Cemetery in Cushing.

Arrangements are in the care of Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home, 110 Limerock Street, Rockland.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Cushing Rescue Squad, C/O Sandra Blanchard, P.O. Box 20, Cushing, ME 04563.

My son Shane was one of the one's that used to crash on his couch whenever he wanted to. It was like a second home to him. My condolences go out to the family. Keep him alive in your thoughts and memories and words.

Danny, how do I ever put into words how much you meant to me. I recall some of my best memories camping and snowmobiling with you and our families. You were always more than just a friend to me more like a second dad. I remember you saying you would walk me down the isle if my dad was unable. I know that our lives went in different directions but whenever we saw each other it was just like old times and like no time had past. I will forever hold you in my heart ❤️ I wish I could of said goodbye. Sue, Jesse, Noah and Jamie I am so sorry. Danny loved you all more than words could ever express. Keep memories close and remember it’s not goodbye just see you later and now you have a ANGEL 😇 RIP Danny I will never forget you! Say hi to my parents for me❤️ Love, Viktoria

First and foremost I want to give my condolences to Marian Martin and Debbie,Shelley, Jody, and all of his beautiful children. I have so many fond memories of Danny. He was my very 1st boy friend. I spent many year's with the Martin family. Danny and I were together for 12 years. And I wish I could put every memory that we had together down. He was a wonderful man. I will always remember our time together. As the year's went by, Danny and I remained friends which I'm very happy for. I am so saddened by this news. Rip Dan I'll miss you!❤
