Martin H. Cahill, 90 of Avon passed away Wednesday, January 8, 2020. The youngest of 12, he was born June 5, 1929 to parents Vaughn and Ruth (nee Wells) Cahill in Galion, OH.

Martin was a proud U.S. Navy veteran who served during the Korean War. He was employed as a draftsman for over 30 years for M.K. Ferguson and retired in 1993. He loved birding, was an avid Jeopardy fan, and was a voracious reader who enjoyed mystery novels. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was a stubborn Irishman.
