Jeffrey M. Martin, 47, of Fall River, passed away Sunday, April 23, 2023, at Rhode Island Hospital, in Providence.
He was a son of Judith (DeCosta) Martin and the late Olivio Martin.
Jeffrey’s career was in the human services field and most recently he was employed as a residential counselor at the ARC of Bristol County. He was an avid Boston sports fan, especially the Patriots and Bruins. His hobbies included playing video games and reading. A jokester since he could talk, Jeffrey enjoyed performing standup comedy. He was also involved with several plays with the BCC theater group. Most importantly, he cherished spending time with his children and was a dedicated father. Jeffrey lit up any room he walked into and he had the ability to make anyone feel like family. To say he will be missed is an understatement.
Along with his mother, Jeffrey is survived by his son Tyler Martin; his daughter Avery Paige Sant-Martin; his brother Chris Martin; his god sons Cory Pires and Grady Dion; his aunts and uncles Ernie and Peggy Mendonca and Kenneth and Jackie DeCosta, his life-long friend Bethany Turner, many cousins and friends. Jeff was an honorary uncle to many. He also leaves behind his beloved dog Meeko.
In honor of Jeffrey's carefree spirit, his family requests all who wish to attend his services to wear casual attire. New England sportswear is also encouraged.
A visitation will be held Saturday, April 29, 2023, from 9:00 – 11:00 AM from the Oliveira Funeral Home – South Main St. Chapel, 2064 South Main St. Fall River, MA, followed by a Funeral Service at 11 AM in the funeral home.
