Martin L. Bock Jr.

Thursday, October 13, 2011

Martin L. Bock, 47, left this world on Monday, Oct. 10, 2011 in Bradenton, Fla. due to heart failure.

He worked as an electrician at Pierce Manufacturing. Marty was a mechanical genius and enjoyed working on fast cars. He loved to cook.

His aptitude for electronics also made him able to invent unique features for his home. He was a creative soul and made metal sculptures that his family and friends treasure.

He was fiercely proud of his son, Martin, and very loving towards all his nephews and extended family.

Marty enjoyed rock music, especially Rush and Pink Floyd, and also lifting a glass with friends. We ask that you do this in lieu of flowers or memorial contributions.

Marty is survived by his son Martin L. Bock III of Bradenton; his parents, Martin L. Bock Sr. and Dorothy Bock of Morgantown; grandmother Mary Pogue of Nashville, Ind.; brother James Bock of Bradenton; sister Patricia Bock of Nashville; nephews Jeff Warren of Bradenton, Terry Tredway Jr. and Jeremy Tredway, both of Nashville; grandmother Emma Chambers and Aunt Vicki Chambers, both of Bradenton; and by the love of his life, Kim Lowry and her children, Blair, Nick and Sophie; and by countless extended family members and friends.

He was predeceased by his mother, Sandra L. Bock and his maternal grandfather and great-grandmother.

Marty never ended a conversation without saying "I miss you and I love you". We echo these sentiments now with his passing.
