January 9, 1951-October 29, 2021

Martin Brennan, 70, of Knox, Indiana, passed away Friday October 29, 2021 at Northwest Health-La Porte in La Porte, IN.

He was born January 9, 1951 in Chicago, Illinois, the son of Gerald Brennan and Dorothy (Hoynes) Brennan.

Martin was a Life-Long Canaryville resident. Martin was a rider and loved to ride his motorcycle. He attended many bike events through-out Illinois and heard he made the trip to Sturgis for the "World's Largest Motorcycle" Rally. Once he was unable to ride his bike, he took up 4-wheelers and golf carts. But everyone will agree that Martin's passion was his family truly enjoying his time with them. He will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his two daughters, Christine (Kelly) O'Neill, and Sandy (Brian) Gagen; two brothers, Kenneth (MaryAnne) Brennan, Joseph Brennan; three sisters, Judith Biesek, Dorothy (Joe) Boyd, Bernadine (John-Deceased) Ryan; five grandchildren, Ashley O'Neill (Zak), Michael Gagen (Heather), Kelly O'Neill, Jr., Rianna Gagen (Bailey), Amber Freeman (Tony); three great-grandchildren, Angel, Abel, Amias (Smiley).

Martin was preceded in death by his parents, a sister, Geraldine (Jimmy) Jennings, grandchild, Adrian Gagen, as well as best friends, Stella Hoynes, and Mike Cooney.

Arrangements are being entrusted to Haverstock Funeral Home and Cremation Services, 602 Maple Ave., La Porte, IN. The family has chosen cremation with A life celebration to be held at a later date.
