Come meet the family
First there are my parents Edward and Janice (Martinz). They are both originally from Montana (Mom is from Butte, Dad is from Billings). Dad was in the U.S. Marine Corps for 32 years, so we had the opportunity to live in Montana, Idaho, Georgia, North Carolina and Okinawa, Japan. Currently, they live in Charlotte, North Carolina. They have 2 sons: William and Scott.
William is a computer programmer and a dedicated student of Japanese martial arts. He is happily married to Brenda (Horton). Brenda is a freelance photographer and an art student at The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. They have a precious daughter, Caitlyn Grace, and an energetic son, Logan Alexander. William, Brenda, Caitlyn and Logan live in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Scott is the yard foreman for a steel company in Charlotte. Before that he was in the U.S. Marine Corps and served in Saudi Arabia during Operation Desert Storm.
