Founded in 1950 by Frank Martin and his nephew Sam Martin, Martin Oak Ridge Funeral Home is now the oldest established funeral home in the city of Oak Ridge. The Martin name was already well established and respected in the funeral industry having founded their first Maritn Funeral Home in Lake City, Tennessee in 1926 and then Martin Funeral Home in Clinton, Tennessee in 1946. The Martin family served the residents of Oak Ridge and Anderson County until 1987 when the funeral home was sold following the death of Sam Martin in August of 1986.
In September 2001, Martin Oak Ridge Funeral Home was purchased by Glen S. King Sr. Mr. King had been employed with Martin Oak Ridge Funeral Home since 1988. He is looking forward to continuing the tradition of providing the highest quality of care and service to the families of Oak Ridge and surrounding areas.
