Martin J. Mills
Martin J. Mills former resident of Middletown, NY passed away on July 27, 2022 at the age of 88 surrounded by his loving family. Martin was born February 11, 1934 in the Bronx to Martin and Helen Mills.
March 1957 Martin married Libby Ann Balen and they had four children. He moved his family to Middletown in 1968, where he started working as an operating engineer at Dutchess quarry in Florida New York. Martin retired in 1994 after 30 years. He was a member of A.A. for 46 years.
Martin’s friends and family knew him as Joe or Irish. He loved to race his pigeons, have family barbecues, and dominating everyone at cornhole. His infectious smile lit up every room he walked into and his sarcastic wit will be missed by everyone that knew him. He passed on his Irish heritage to his children and grandchildren with the songs and scary tales he taught them. UP MAYO!
