James "Jimmy" Martin

February 25, 1964 — August 21, 2022

James “Jimmy” Martin, 58, of Port Neches, Texas passed away on Sunday, August 21, 2022, at his residence in Port Neches with his loving family at his side.

Jimmy was born on February 25, 1964, in Port Arthur, Texas to Mary Charlene James Martin and Raymond Newton Martin. He was a 1982 graduate of Port Neches High School and a boilermaker with Zachry Construction for thirteen years. Jimmy loved to hunt and drink his coffee in the morning. He enjoyed Nascar Racing and drag racing and even went to a few events. Jimmy’s main thing was his family. He liked to pick on them as they did with him but his family always knew that he loved them and he was loved back. He will be missed but not forgotten.

Survivors include his sisters, Melissa Martin and her husband Mark of Port Neches and Lexy Barton of Nederland; nieces, Ashley Boyd of Kingwood, Texas and Caitlin Kolar and her husband Blake of Groves; great nieces, Averi Kolar and Kennedi Kolar of Groves.

Jimmy was preceded in death by his parents, Raymond and Charlene Martin.
