Charlie A. Martin, 73, of Fishers, passed away on Monday, April 24, 2017 at his home.  He was born on June 11, 1943 to the late Elbert and Marjorie (Epperson) Martin in Pendleton, Indiana.

For 30 years, Charlie worked as a Mechanical Draftsman for the Naval Air Warfare Center in Indianapolis where he was also an engineering technician.  He collected guns and knives, and traveled the United States in his younger years.  Charlie owned a classic 1971 Mercury Cougar XR7 which he loved.  He enjoyed Native American culture and artifacts and college basketball, especially Indiana schools and the Big 10 Conference.  Most of all, Charlie was very outgoing and friendly, and had a heart of gold.
