A son of the late Roy and Evelyn (Debee) Enochs, he was born at Barnesville, Ohio on September 19, 1941, and was best known to family and friends as “Pops” or “Marty”.
Throughout his lifetime, Marty provided for his family as a union mason, a road and bridge builder, and ultimately retired in 1990 from the former Resource Exploration at Dennison after working in the oil fields for a number of years.
Marty enjoyed spending time with his family and his beloved companion, Linda Lockhard; working on cars, following the Cleveland Browns and Cleveland Indians as well as watching Turner Classic Movies. He also enjoyed spending time out of doors, fishing, drinking beer, and sharing his life stories with whoever happened to be around. During the winter months, Marty loved to relax and share many of the same stories indoors gathered around his wood burner.
In addition to his companion, Marty is survived by a daughter, Ann Maffitt of Dennison, five sons, Howard “Bill” (June) Walker of Dennison, Robert Midcap of Dennison, Mark(companion, Michelle Garbrandt) Enochs of Uhrichsville, Paul (Robin) Enochs of Malvern, and Joseph (Dawn) Enochs of Gnadenhutten; 16 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; two sisters, Patty (Hughie) King of Chester, West Virginina, and Debbie Staats; and a brother, Paul Enochs, both of Canton.
Completing the family are numerous nieces and nephews and extended family members.
