James “Jimmy” Byron Martin, 72, of Brunswick, NC went from flying in airplanes in his earthly life to flying with the Angels in Heaven on Tuesday, April 1, 2014.

Jimmy was born in Columbus County, NC on September 3, 1941 to the late Van Buren and Laura Lewis Alford Martin.  He enjoyed going to the Columbus County Airport and flying with a lot of his friends for many years.
