Buddy Martin

Buddy Martin

We recently learned of the passing of our friend Dr.  Charles (Buddy) Martin.  If there ever was a charter member of the Clive Cussler Fan Club, it certainly had to be Buddy (sorry Wayne).

We met Buddy at the first Clive Cussler Collector Society Convention in Denver in 2005, and have enjoyed his antics ever since.  Who can forget the time he had Clive sign his forehead?  He probably didn’t wash it for days!

Buddy was a serious collector, assembling a collection of “all things Cussler,” amassing ten of thousands of articles related to Clive or his books.

We will miss you Buddy.
