Born on March 26, 1933, in Biggs, California. Martin was the son of the late Ronald and Lois LeCornu (Moreland). Martin, known to family and friends as Marty, was a quiet and strong individual with a witty sense of humor. He always had the perfect one-liner at just right moment. He was a hardworking man who dedicated himself to being a good husband and father while providing for his family.

Marty is survived by his loving wife, Claudia (Corbett) LeCornu, and their children: Mark LeCornu, Matthew LeCornu, John LeCornu, and Rachel LeCornu.
