Martin was born March 3, 1926 to Martin Novak and Anna Novak Holeinsky in Buhl, Idaho. Martin attended grade school at Deep Creek school and graduated from Castleford High School in 1943.

When he returned home, he worked in the potato industry where he met and married his only true love, Mildred Brixey. Together they had five children.
Martin worked for the Pet Milk Company for 40 plus years, until he retired. He also farmed west of Buhl for almost 50 years.
