Martin F. Litteken, Jr. of Wichita Falls, Texas, passed away on Saturday, April 23, 2016, at the age of 64. A memorial service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 30, 2016, at Grace Church in Wichita Falls, Texas.
Martin was born on November 21, 1951, in Wichita Falls, Texas, to Martin and Doris Litteken. He graduated with honors from Texas A&M University’s College of Engineering. Martin was a member of the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets where he served as commander of Squadron 14, a Ross Volunteer, and was on the swim team. He went on to serve as a Civil Engineer in the United States Air Force. He served as the President of First Federal Savings and Loan, and in 1998 Martin opened Cornerstone Engineering, LLC, a civil engineering and surveying firm.
Martin’s strength of leadership and heart of service were evident in all areas of his life. He was a Boy Scout and became a Cub Scout Pack Leader and Assistant Scout Leader. He chaired the Wichita Archer Clay Baptist Association Fundraising campaign for motel accommodations at Camp Chaparral, was a Loaned Executive for the United Way, served on steering committees for Cattle Baron’s Ball, the inaugural Falls Fest, and was a member of Rib’s Inc. He was an Elder at Grace Church, and was on the board of the Priddy Foundation and First National Bank. Martin joyfully supported the Boys and Girls Club of Wichita Falls. He was on the corporate board of directors for 34 years, and served as Vice-President and President of the Board. In recognition of this commitment, Martin received the 30-year service to youth award and was the recipient of the 2015 Josh Kimbrough Distinguished Alumnus Award.
Martin’s personal relationship with Christ was evident in all parts of his life. He lived with integrity and sacrificially gave of himself to his friends and community, but that character was most evident in his relationship with his family. He survived by his loving wife Jeanie (Fischer) Litteken; his son Brad Martin Litteken and wife Megan of Wichita Falls; daughter Sara Beth (Litteken) Taylor and husband Jeff of Dallas, TX; four grandchildren, Callum, Evan, Jack, and Clara; and his sisters, Jean Ann Darnell of Wichita Falls, TX and Joan Frances Spurlock of Fort Worth, TX and their families.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorials are made to The Boys and Girls Clubs of Wichita Falls and Hospice of Wichita Falls.
