Danny Martin funeral set for Friday
WHITTIER – Funeral services for beloved Whittier resident Danny Martin will take place Friday, Jan. 3, at 11 a.m. at Morningstar Christian Chapel in Whittier.
Martin died last month after he was struck by a vehicle while riding his tricycle on Whittier Boulevard. He was 61.
Martin became physically handicapped after a motorcycle accident in 1981. After years of physical therapy, he learned to ride a tricycle, which he rode around town, waving to passerby.
Hundreds of people attended a group bicycle ride in Martin’s memory last week. The ride will become an annual event, according to organizers.
