Martin Stripling Jr.
Martin Stripling Jr., born in Lufkin, TX was a devoted Husband, Father, Papa, and Coach. He worked hard his entire life in construction to provide for his family while taking time to coach his children and grandson in different sports. He was blessed to be able to retire two years ago to Cape Coral, FL, where he could stroll the beach with his best 4 legged friend, Petey. He was the king of dad jokes, movie trivia, sport stats, especially the Texas Longhorns, Dallas Cowboys, & Houston Astros. He fought a long hard fight and closed his eyes for one last time on January 15, 2022, the day before his 65th birthday.
He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Laurie Diecks Stripling; daughter, Kelli Stripling (42); son, Scott Stripling (45); grandson; John Partridge (21).
No formal services are planned at this time.
