Melton Martin

05/06/1974 - 04/20/2024

Melton Martin, 50, passed away peacefully on April 20, 2024, in Mesa, Arizona, after a long and challenging illness. He was a man of faith.

Melton was born in Crownpoint, New Mexico, May 1974. As a child he lived in Crownpoint, New Mexico, and then moved to Klagetoh, Arizona, in his teen years.

He was the middle child of Tom and Louise Martin. He had many siblings – Wilbert, Gabriel, Fernando, Gilbert, Susie, Marilyn, Leonard, Tom Jr. and, Albert, Calvin, Martha, Anthony, and Samson (Darrell). Melton never married nor had any children of his own.

Melton lived a tough life, still, he remained humble throughout, and he had a heart of gold. He will be remembered best for caring about others, having a sense of humor, laughter, kindness, and the courage to deal with life’s trials. He was a generous man. He would go to any length to make others whole, and he would literally give the shirt off his back without hesitation. His greatest joy was caring for his mother, visiting family, and spending time with the Lord. He was a caregiver, a jack-of-all-trades, a carpenter, a lumber jack, and he made sure his ‘mom’ had a cozy and warm home.

Our brother, Melton, will be greatly missed. He now lives with our Heavenly Father, in peace and joy.

Services for Melton will be held at the Klagetoh Chapter House, Klagetoh, Arizona, on Monday, May 6, 2024, at 12 Noon. A farewell dinner will follow the services – as held in our Navajo tradition.
