On Wednesday, October 9 Roman Martin was struck and killed while riding his bike to school. This kind, smart, fun loving child loved Jesus Christ and will be missed by his family and friends. While his death has created a void in our church and school family, we rejoice in the knowledge that Roman is at peace with His Heavenly Father. We grieve, but not without hope. We are sad, but not without joy. We are confident that the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ has given Roman everlasting life.
We are a close family at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and School, and we have shared our love, expressed our concern, and offered our care. But we have also received the care and concern of the Sheboygan community and have been asked numerous times, “How can I help the Martin family?”
To help the family during this very difficult time, we have partnered with the South Wisconsin District of The Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod and established the “Roman Martin Fund” at St. Paul’s. Gifts and donations received will be used to help the family pay for the funeral and other associated costs.
If you would like to donate, click here and 100% of the received gifts will be used to support the family.
We are grateful for the time we were able to share with Roman and we appreciate your support as we gather around his sister and mother in their time of need.
“I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live” (John 11:25, ESV).
Donations by check are also welcome, payable to South Wisconsin District (8100 W Capitol Dr in Milwaukee, WI 53222). Please include “Roman Martin Fund” in the memo line.
