MACON, Ga. — A Macon man battling throat cancer passed away over the weekend at the age of 61.
13WMAZ's Pepper Baker brought you the story of Fred Martin earlier this month.
He worked as a furniture loader for 30 years, moving military families around the country. One of his last wishes was to ride in his semi-truck one last time.
He took that ride Sunday, November 3rd.
A close friend of Martin's boss says he passed around 4:15 p.m. Sunday.
Martin's cancer came back this year in March after remission. Before that he underwent surgery to remove a cyst from his esophagus.
Martin grew up in the Pleasant Hill area in Macon.
