Lifetime Alamosa resident Richard Wayne Martin, 71, died September 9, 2020 at his farm in Alamosa.

Richard was born in Alamosa, Colorado on June 2, 1949, the son of Floyd and Rosa Doughty Martin. He married the love of his life Angela M. Townsend on April 15, 1972 at his parent’s home here in Alamosa.

Richard served in the United States Air Force for several years and was honorably discharged. He loved his country and was proud to have served.

He worked delivering packages in and around Alamosa for UPS and until his retirement after 25 years of service. Richard loved his horses and competed in many events, earning the title of Team Roping Champion. His greatest love above all was his family, they meant everything to him. He will be remembered for his good sense of humor and joking with friends.

My Condolences. Richard was the cool one who always said it the way it was. His smile was second to none I knew when he was joking just with his little smirk. Definitely one in a million. Hard worker with a sense of humor that is so hard to find.

My deepest sympathy to Angie and her Family. I was shocked this afternoon to here of Richard's passing. I was honored to know him, first as my Dad's coworker at UPS, and second as my delivery driver at The Sherwin-Williams Company in Alamosa. You could help but love him for his infectious smile and sense of humor. Richard was one of the great ones!
