Reese, the beloved son of Barry and Regennia Martin, lived life to the fullest daily. He played hard, laughed often and loved completely. In his five years of life, he filled each day with his favorite things; toys, food, friends, girls and family. Trains, cars, fire trucks and balls were his favorite toys, Bruesters, Bones, Logans and Armondos were favorite restaurants. Seth, Max, Brandon and Andrew were his best friends. Maddie, Ms. Renee, Ashley, Laura and Dr. Cook were his girlfriends. His little brother, Riley was his shadow wanting to be just like his big brother. Reese had an infectious personality that drew people to him. He loved people and everyone who met him fell in love with him. He will be missed by all.
