ROBERT BRADFORD MARTIN “BRAD”
Suddenly, unexpectedly, Brad Martin passed away Monday, July 30th. He left behind a family who loved him greatly, wife Robin, daughters Lauren and Kelly, sister Ann, brothers Peter and Steve, and a wonderful mother Nancy as well as a network of greatly valued friends and clients.
Brad attended Punahou School and the University of Kansas. He was a commercial insurance broker with Insurance Factors, an avid tennis player, golfer, and skier, and loved being on the water and at the beach.
Brad lived his 54 years with a spirit of adventure and a love of life and all those around him. His wife always teased him because whenever Brad mentioned someone, even someone she had never heard of in their 20 years of marriage, he said, “Great Guy!! A really good friend!” That is simply how Brad saw those he lived, worked and played with over the years.
Brad loved excitement of any kind. Venturing out with his daughters on their monthly adventure with his father daughter group, traveling to the far reaches of the globe, or simply rushing down the street to see what was causing the ruckus in the neighborhood all gave Brad joy. Camera and binoculars in hand, Brad was excited to tackle the world.
Brad has moved on now but all who love him know that his spirit is out there enjoying the next big event.
The family has asked that in lieu of flowers donations can made to the Kapiolani Health Foundation, 55 Merchant Street #2600, Honolulu, HI 96813, or KapiolaniGift.org.
