In Memoriam: Charles "Chic" Martini

On Sunday, March 12, 2023, the Martini family lost one of our pillars: Charles John "Chic" Martini. We hold his family in prayer, especially his beloved wife of 62 years, Claire.

Chic was an avid researcher with regard to our Martini family genealogy. He frequently emailed articles of interest, photos, and more to a large number of family members and is responsible for curating nearly all of the content on this website, This site would truly not exist without his efforts.

About Chic:

A graduate of St. Bonaventure School, St. Lawrence Latin School and Roger Bacon High School, Chic was active in his Catholic faith, and a parishioner at St. James Church, White Oak for 54 years. Chic served two years in the U.S. Army after graduation. He loved working for Procter and Gamble and retired after a 35 year career. Together with Claire, they traveled in retirement extensively to 41 countries on all seven continents. He loved to play golf, which led Chic and Claire to memberships at Pebble Creek, Deer Run, and Miami View Golf Clubs. They played at least one round of golf together in all 50 states.

Memorial gifts may be made to Purple Pansies to aid families affected by pancreatic cancer, or the Fr. Stan Doerger Tuition Assistance Fund, 7448 Whispering Farm Trail, Cleves, OH 45002.
