Funeral services for one of Chattanooga's top radio personalities were held Sunday.
Benjamin Martin was better known to listeners as Bearman. A celebration of his life was held at Heritage Funeral Home in Fort Oglethorpe.
Martin, who was 61, passed away Thursday after a lengthy battle with liver disease. He had been hospitalized frequently in recent months, and had returned home. Late Wednesday night, he fell, resulting in a head injury which was too much to overcome.
Sunday, those who loved loved him dearly stopped by to comfort his family and share fond memories
"Today is a somber day," says US-101 personality Melissa "Mo" Turner, "If you would have told me I would be doing this I wouldn't believe you. He was such a good man and loved. He was family."
