Martin Ray Slaton

January 20, 2000 ~ July 5, 2022 (age 22) 22 Years Old


Martin Ray Slaton, of Mount Vernon, Texas, aged 22, left from this earth to take his first breath in the air of heaven on Tuesday, July 5, 2022. He was born on January 20, 2000, in Mt. Pleasant, Texas to Steven Ray and Vickie Gail (Amos) Slaton.

Martin played in many of the local youth sports growing up in Mount Vernon and loved spending summers at Kanakuk Kamp. He was kindhearted and a friend to many. He always had an “I love you,” and meant it, leaving no doubt that he loved unconditionally. He enjoyed seeing others happy and filled us all with laughter on countless occasions. He left his mark on this earth with his huge heart and giving nature; then left this world giving life, hope, and joy to many through the gift of organ donation.

Martin will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved him.

He is preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Martin Ray Slaton and maternal grandmother, Marlene (Powell) Amos.

Left to cherish his memory are his parents, Steven and Vickie Slaton, his sister, Lilly and husband Eric Miller of Talco, Texas, his dear, precious niece, Whitley Miller, as well as his paternal grandmother, Selinda (Plunkett) Hassell, maternal grandfather, Clyde Ray Amos, numerous aunts, uncles, close cousins, many friends, former classmates, and teammates.

Family and friends will gather for the Viewing at Mount Vernon Memorial Funeral Home on Monday, July 11, 2022, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The Funeral Service will be held at the First Baptist Church on Tuesday, July 12, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. The Burial will follow at the Providence Cemetery.
