Douglas Martin, 'heart and soul’ of Roanoke Memorial Hospital, dies at 81


Douglas Martin took a housekeeping job at Roanoke Memorial Hospital in Virginia at age 17, for a pay of $4.85 a day. For the next 63 years, Martin would be the heart and soul of the hospital by always being a generous helping hand. Sunday TODAY’s Willie Geist remembers a life well lived.
