It is with great sadness of heart that we announce the passing of Martin, better know to his family and friends as Marty, on Monday, March 11, 2019. He was in his 91st year.
Marty is survived by his loving wife of 70 years, Doreen; son, Daniel; daughter in law, Therese; eight grandchildren; 10 great grandchildren; one nephew; and many friends and extended family members. He was predeceased by his parents, Dorothy and Fred; sister, Hazel; and son, Thomas.
Marty was a Kind friendly man who always had a smile. A true gentleman who treasured the lasting friendships he made throughout his lifetime. Marty will be missed by many.
After working as a mechanic for BC Hydro in Victoria for 34 years, Marty retired to Qualicum Beach in 1985. Marty had a love of softball, golf, fishing, and most of all his pets. He loved animals and was surrounded by them always; his latest being his companion, Lily.
In keeping with Marty's wishes no formal funeral services will be held. A Celebration of Life will be scheduled in the near future in his honour and his cremated remains will be scatter with those of his son, Thomas. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to honour Marty may make a donation in his memory to the nearest SPCA.
