Luginbuel Funeral Home, Vinita, OK (918) 256-5555.......Royce Truman Martin went home to be with his Lord on Wednesday, January 2, 2019. He was known as “Uncle T”, “True Blue”, or “Truman” by his family. Truman was a jokester, but most of all a loving, caring brother and uncle. He was also known to flirt with the ladies every chance he got. His favorite thing to do on his birthday was for his nieces and nephews to take him to the club. Every time he came home and was able, he would attend church at Serenity Missionary Baptist Church, Sunrise Baptist to him. He would tease about singing “Precious Lord”, saying maybe next time.
