Jackie Lee Martin, 75, of Paris, died on Monday, Dec. 11, 2023, at Heritage House of Paris. He was cared for greatly in the last few weeks of his life by their amazing staff. Jackie was born in Paris, Texas on Oct. 14, 1948, and raised in Hugo, Oklahoma by his parents the late Eugene "Red" and Helen Thorpe. He graduated from Hugo High School and was quickly drafted. He met the late Maurice Ann Martin after returning from Vietnam and they were married soon after. Jackie was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. He retired from Turner Pipe in 2014 and has since spent most days fishing with a great group of friends. One of his fishing buddies recently stated, "he was the cornerstone of Lake Crook and if you fished anywhere in Lamar County you knew him". His second passion was the OU Sooners, he was an unyielding Sooners fan and had very high expectations that his family carry on those traditions.
