Omarko Martin remembered as a loving son and brother
LAST week Sunday dozens of mourners gathered at the Seventh-Day Adventist Church at Parks Road in St Andrew to offer thanks for the life of Omarko Rushane Martin.
The 19-year-old Martin died after he was hit from his motorcycle which collided with a truck on Trafalgar Road on February 25.
Affectionately called 'Neco', Martin was born in the parish of St Elizabeth to parents Mark Martin and Sharon Johnson.
He gained an early education at Peniel Basic School but soon moved to the Corporate Area where he attended the Shortwood Practising and Holy Trinity high schools.
According to Beverley McHugh, who delivered the eulogy, Martin was a warm individual who lived for others.
"Neco was a loving son, brother and a wonderful nephew. He was very kind and very thrifty with his money," McHugh said.
Martin is survived by his parents, grandparents, stepmother, two brothers, four sisters and a host of other relatives and friends.
His remains were interred in a family plot at Salisbury Plains in St Andrew.
