Arthur Ray Martin In loving memory of Arthur Ray Martin - March 28, 1946-August 14, 2012. This is a photo of my best friend for 50 years and my husband of 46 years. He died in August 2012 of Cancer of the Bronchus which was determined by the Veterans Administration to have been caused by exposure to Agent Orange. It took 45 years for AO to kill him but he only lived 3 short months after learning that he had cancer. In 46 years of marriage he never missed a day of work because if sickness. He served 8 years in the United States Air Force. During those eight years he did two tours overseas. His first tour was from November 1966-November 1967 at Ubon Royal Thai Air Base in Ubon, Thailand. It was determined that Agent Orange was used to kill foliage around the perimeter fence of that base. He was a good man, husband, father, grandfather, son, and brother. Words cannot express the loss that we, his family feels. He will forever be missed but will live on in our hearts and minds as we remember him as he was before he became ill. Dianne Moore Martin
