Don Martini was a minister of Jehovah's Witnesses, outstanding writer and speaker; taught the Bible for 83 years. As an entrepreneur he created many businesses such as Telechem and American Formula.
He was a poet extraordinaire writing such poems as "Who Flings The Stars".
Don married his wife Betty in 1979. Four days after he met her she said, "Just thought I would let you know I'm going to marry you." When a friend almost died on aspartame he set up Mission Possible World Health Intl, a global volunteer force now operating 31 years to warn the public. Also Mission Possible Aviation. On his death a friend wrote "Don was such a beautiful, faithful supporter of Mission Possible- giving his wife wings to fly, literally, world-wide; and was like her consignor too, that I witnessed, a better half, noticing the approaching rapids." Don called it a ministry quoting Proverbs 24:11 because Jesus had pity on the sick, and as a footstep follower of Christ.
He always focused on the needs of others and wanted people to have scriptural knowledge and Jehovah God's love.
His truth and zeal for life were astonishing. It was as if it was his duty to help everyone he met. With great accomplishments will he be remembered among those whose lives he touched.

Jesus said in Matthew 22:32 long after Abraham, Isaac and Jacob passed away. "I am the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. He is the God, not of the dead, but of the living" . "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." John 5:28,29.
