Services set for Bellevue sergeant

BELLEVUE, Ohio - Services for Army Staff Sgt. Jon Martin, 33, who died Thursday in a hospital in Germany nearly two weeks after he was hurt in Iraq, will be at 11 a.m. Saturday in Immaculate Conception Church, Bellevue.

Visitation will be in the church from 2 to 8 p.m. Friday.

On Nov. 9, the vehicle in which Sergeant Martin was a passenger in Jisr Naft hit an improvised explosive device. He was unconscious as he was taken from the vehicle.

Sergeant Martin, based at Fort Campbell, Ky., with the 101st Airborne Division, was in his third tour of duty in Iraq. He received a Purple Heart after a roadside bomb last year injured tendons in one of his arms.

He was a 1993 graduate of Bellevue High School. He joined the Marines afterward and, later, the Army.

Surviving are his wife, Becki; daughters, Alaina and Allaura; son, Trenton; parents, Donald and Laura Martin; sister, Heather Bollinger, and grandparents, Vernon and Vi Arnold.

Arrangements are by Foos and Foos Funeral Service in Bellevue.
