Victor Martire passed away on October 3rd 2018 at Fort Walton Beach Medical Center. We were blessed to have learned many valuable lessons from him during his 83 years, among them: Always put family first. Never put pineapple on pizza. Always spoil your family and your cats. Never let anyone leave your house with an empty stomach. Wine always tastes better when shared with loved ones. Crabs always taste better when freshly caught off his dock. Finally, whatever you do, be the best at it that you can be. He exemplified this by being a great husband, father, grandfather, patriot, and best friend.Victor was born in the Bronx on January 24, 1935. He was a loving son to Gregorio and Margaret Martire, and caring older brother to Arthur (Artie) and Robert (Bobby) Martire. While serving in the Air Force, he met the love of his life, Joan Campbell. They were married for over 63 years, during which they were blessed with three beautiful daughters (Susan Halter, Margie Cheney, and Vicki Woram). Victor was a loving grandfather to Audrey Halter, Karrah Woram, Adam Halter, and Shannon Woram.Victor’s service will be held at the Emerald Coast Funeral Home in Fort Walton Beach. Visitation will be held on October 6 at 2PM. His service will shortly follow at 3PM. In lieu of flowers, he requests donations to Socks Animal Shelter and Paws Shelter.
