Vincent Dean Martin

Nov. 2, 1988 ~ July 21, 2021

Vincent Dean Martin was born on November 2, 1988 in Nome, Alaska to Lawrence Martin and Christina Aparezuk.

Vincent graduated from Lathrop High School in Fairbanks, Alaska and lived in Fairbanks for a while, making friends and memories there, then he moved to the Anchorage, Alaska area where he lived and worked.

He met Grace and they had two beautiful daughters, Tiana and Nala.

He loved his daughters more than anything else and they were his world. He always talked about how much he loved them and was always showing pictures of his girls and talked about how he would love to see them carry on the tradition of native dance and his culture.

Vincent always wore his beautiful smile as he bounded into a room, he had his mother’s funny sense of humor and was always cracking jokes to try to make others laugh.

He had a sense of wonder about him, always eager to learn new things, never afraid of a challenge; in fact, he just recently challenged himself to working out and getting into top physical shape. He loved the Alaskan outdoors, hiking and fishing and exploring.

He could always accomplish anything he set his mind to and was always optimistic about what the future held in store for him, he never lost his sense of adventure.

Vincent will be missed by so many friends and his family. He will always be remembered by those who knew him as a loving gentle soul with his big smile and gracious heart.

He leaves behind his two beautiful daughters Tiana, 8 and Nala, 5.

He is survived by Louise Letia Richard and Philomera Martin, as well as many other cousins and relatives.

He is preceded by his brothers Lawrence Martin II and Leroy Martin, his beloved niece Avril, his grandparents Vincent and Alice Martin, and Joe and Martina Aparezak.

May he meet with his angels in heaven and rejoice with his brothers and may you rest in eternal peace, our son.

Thessalonians 14.7-18 “Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and heavens above. Thus, we shall always be with the Lord, therefore, console one another with these words.”
