David Martin 1971-2022

David Martin, age 51 of Hastings, passed away with cancer at his significant other’s place in Red Wing on Saturday Aug. 27, 2022.

David was born on Jan. 16, 1971 in Hastings to Elmo and Gloria (Pechacek) Martin. He was a 1990 Park High School of Cottage Grove graduate.

David enjoyed dogs and owned many throughout his life. Out of all the places he lived, he enjoyed Bloomington the best. His favorite hobbies were fishing – either in a boat or on the pier – and camping in a tent.

David is survived by his father Elmo (Marilyn), sisters Patricia (Kearn) and Barbara (Jim), significant other Violet, and many aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. David is preceded in death by his mother Gloria, sister Terri, and nephew Kevin.
