Michael Shannon Martin


MICHAEL SHANNON MARTIN, age 46, passed away Thursday, August 29, 2019 at Johnson City Medical Center, Johnson City, Tenn.

He was born July 26, 1973 to Michael W. and Donna Martin, and grew up in the Sugar Grove community. Early in life Shannon found a love of tinkering and working on cars. He became the guy around town that could fix just about anything. When something broke down, everyone knew to “call Shannon and he’ll fix it” because of his reputation, good natured personality, and willingness to help anybody day or night. Shannon was always willing to share a tale or two and lots of laughter. His contagious smile and gentle nature will be missed more than he will ever know.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Donna Sloan Martin; and aunt Betty Martin .

Shannon is survived by his children that he loved and adored, Justin, Kelsey, Emily and Jackson, all of Marion, Va.; father, Michael W. Martin; brother, Jason and wife, Barbara and their children, Matthew Martin and David Wilson; step-daughter, Kayla Gilley; uncles, Lee Sloan and wife, Barbara and Doug Martin; aunt, Judy Martin; cousins, Alex and Kiera; special long-time friend, Glenda Owens Ambrister; and a multitude of special family and friends, as Shannon truly never met a stranger.

Funeral services will be held Tuesday, September 3, 2019 at 8 p.m. at Seaver-Brown Chapel with Pastor Billy Gwinn officiating. Burial will be private. The family will receive friends Tuesday from 6 p.m. until the time of service at Seaver-Brown Chapel.
