Brad Martin, 51, of Crossett, died Saturday, August 6, 2022, at his residence. Mr. Martin was a former resident of Hamburg, a 1989 graduate of Hamburg High School, a resident of Crossett for most of his life, and a veteran of the United States Army. He was the Owner and Operator of A&E Environmental, and was proud of the company he built over 20 years ago, as well as Brooks 40 Printing. Mr. Martin served as a Firefighter for the Crossett Fire Department, having retired after 25 years of service. He was a member of the Crossett Riding Club and was also a member of the Church of the Redeemer. While he was an avid hunter, fisherman, and general outdoorsman, he always found time to enjoy cooking, entertaining others, special occasions, and riding to the river to check the water with his two Yorkies, Bentley and Toby. He loved spending time with his children and watching them play softball, baseball, and football. Spending time with his family and friends was very important, but his grandchildren were his pride and joy.
He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Carrol Curtis and Evelyn Gardner Barnett, and Woodie and Dorothy Callaway Martin.
He is survived by a son, Sky Martin and wife, Shannon of Hamburg; two daughters, Whitney Woods of Hamburg and Bailey Martin and fiance, Kaleb Martinie, of Foley, Alabama; his parents, Bobby and Sylvia Barnett Martin of Hamburg; two brothers, Brian Martin and wife, Jennifer of Crossett and Blake Martin and wife, Dawn, of Hamburg; two granddaughters, Bryleigh Woods and Brynlee Woods; two bonus children, Dawson Carter and Daelin Carter and a special friend, Haley “Fred” Strunk.
