Biography*18 Jan 2020 From Nancy Cornelius:
James Robert Martin was knwn by most as Jimmy Martin. He was born April 30, 1930 to LD Martin and Lola Culpepper, Martin in Marshall Co. AL. Other than living in OK and Korea during military times, he lived and raised his family in Marshall Co. AL. He was the only child LD and Lola had. Jimmy attended the Albertville school system for his early schooling where he played football, baseball, and basketball while excelling in the classroom. Jim also had a love for music. He was a member of the First Baptist church in Albertville. He sang tenor with some other young men in the area. Jimmy first went to college at Auburn in the fall of 1948 until May of 1949. He came back home to attend Snead from 1949-1950. He transferred to Jacksonville State in 1950 until summer of 1951. On June 18, 1951 he married Frances Brumbeloe in Iuka Mississippi. That fall Jim and Frankie moved to Auburn AL where he again attended AU; there he graduated with a Textile Engineering degree in June of 1953. He belonged to the Phi PSI Honorary Fraternity. Once out of college he was called to military duty. Jimmy joined the Army Oct 1953 in Montgomery, AL. Before he went to Korea he went to Artillery school in Ft. Sill, OK. This is where he learned Ballistic Meteorology with Radio and Radar. This is what he did in Korea using weather balloons. He was discharged Aug 1955 from Ft. Smith, AK. In 1956 Jimmy was hired in Huntsville, AL as an Aeronautical Research Engineer. His job was aerodynamic evaluation and development of computerized analysis techniques for the guided missile control systems, making recommendations as to test results and other experimental data. In 1957 Jimmy and Frankie welcomed their first child, a daughter, into the world. In 1960 he was transferred to NASA / MSFC. Research included determining in flight accuracies of “Angle of Attack Measurements” on Jupiter and Juno II flights, developing computer programs to determine launch phase component winds from onboard measurements and computer programs for control system analysis. In 1962 Jim was advanced to Special assistant to the Division Chief, conducting independent research in the area of flight evaluation .In 1963 Jim and Frankie welcomed their 2nd daughter into the world. They also started building a home for their family during this time, where Frankie still lives today. In 1965 Jim was moved up to work on the Saturn IB and Skylab projects under the direction of Dr. Wernher Von Braun who was the first Marshall Space Flight Center Director. In 1968 he was moved to Senior technical systems engineer for mission data and analysis requirements for the Saturn and Skylab programs. During the next several years Jim and Frnakie’s 2nd daughter began to sing, at a young age, with a gospel group. Even though he could not read music, he taught himself to play the piano as well as guitar by ear. Jim played the bass guitar in this group while keeping up with his job in Huntsville. Family vacations in the earlier years were taken in FL close to KSC so he could work while the rest of the family could have fun. This would give him time in the fall for hunting. In 1974 Jim was involved with the Shuttle projects as well as Spacelab 2. He served as Huntsville operations support center simulation supervisor for support personnel training. Over the years Jim received a special service award for developing the criteria and format defining the Spacelab Payload Operations Control Center (POCC) requirements. He also was the author of several NASA Publications and at least one publication for the Army Ballistic Missile Agency. In 1981 Jim lost his dad, LD, to a stroke. Jim retired from NASA in 1982, to begin working for O.C. Jean and Associates in Huntsville. He helped develop specifications and interface documents for automated electrical support equipment to be used at Vandenberg Air Force Base. He also worked on other Spacelab subsystem projects. In 1983 a new phase in life began as grandparents. We now had PAW and MAW Martin. In 1984 he continued with McDonnell Douglas Astronautics Company in other Spacelab projects. In 1985 he lost his mom, Lola, to a stroke just like his dad. This was harder on Jim than the family thought it would be. He finally retired in 1986 where he continued his love for music, outdoors, and grand kids. His 2nd grandchild came in 1986. He taught his grandkids all the things in life he loved. He loved to fish and hunt birds. He also took piano lessons to learn to read music. He learned to play golf, where he went several times a week with friends later in life. Many times over the years people in the area would come to Frankie and Jimmy’s house to “Pick and Grin.” If you wanted a good singing, Sunday afternoon at their home was the place to be. Jim passed away 2 days after his birthday in 2006, leaving his wife of almost 55 years, 2 daughters and son in laws, 3 grandchildren, and 1 great grandson.2
