At the beginning of this year (January 2014), we lost a great friend, A.B. Martin, founder and board member of The 300 Club, who moved on to a better place.
A strong family man, a well-known real estate attorney, and an exceptional giver to our community, his tireless and passionate service to The 300 Club helped the families of many officers and fire personnel in the Metro Atlanta area.
The 300 Club began in 1991 by A.B. writing a check out of his own pocket to the family of a slain police officer. With his guidance and ever-present nature, 23 years later we are still providing support and honoring firefighters and police officers.
It was said best by Lt. Colonel Pete Andresen of the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office:
“We will never be able to help like AB. has for all of us.”
A.B., thanks for always being there. We will miss you.
