Top Volunteer Honored, In Memoriam

At Delaware’s Driver Safety annual meeting on May 21, 2014 a very special memorial was given to the state’s former State Coordinator, Perry Martinson. Perry was in his sixth year as Driver Safety State Coordinator for Delaware when he suddenly passed away.

Prior to his leadership role with Driver Safety, Perry was President of Delaware’s Dover chapter for two years. He was successful in attracting new and talented volunteers to the Chapter, and increased course attendance in Driver Safety.

“Perry was inspirational,” said Roger Hollopeter, Delaware’s current Driver Safety State Coordinator. “He kept things running smoothly at all times and motivated volunteers to do their best work.”

Roger also presented a plaque reading, “Always in our thoughts, forever in our hearts” to Perry’s wife Charlotte Martinson and his daughter Paula Ennis.
