With sadness and heavy hearts, we announce that Arnold James Martin passed away suddenly on Friday, March 9th, 2018 at the age of 56.

Arnold was a loving, hard-working, patient, and generous man. He led the Men’s Ministry for many years at Calvary Baptist Church and Grace Bible Church. He loved to spend his time hiking and biking outdoors. He was an awesome driver in Truck Rodeos, often taking home the top prize. He also performed in many plays for churches and Audience of One. Arnold was sadly predeceased by his father Lorne. He is survived by his wife Terri-Lynne (nee Bookhout), daughters Brittany and Natalie (boyfriend Peter), mother Katie (nee Brubacher), sisters Shirley Gingrich (Gord) and Jane Kinsie(Bob), sisters-in-law Wendy Bookhout, Karen Bookhout, and Michelle Oates, brothers-in-law Mark Bookhout (Linda), and many nieces, nephews, and extended family members. He will be deeply missed and forever remembered by all of them.

Friends and relatives are invited to a visitation at Grace Bible Church, 334 Preston Parkway in Cambridge, on Tuesday, March 13th from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The Funeral Service will be held on Wednesday, March 14th at Grace Bible Church at 10:00 a.m. with a reception to follow in the church hall. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Promise Keepers, The Heart and Stroke Foundation, or Grace Bible Church.

As Arnie would say, “Keep Smiling.”

To the family of Arnold Martin:

Please accept our most heart felt sympathies of the lost of your son, brother, husband, dad, father, uncle. Arnold was one of my oldest childhood friends, and although life and distance took us in different directions, I was honored to be his best man on his happiest day. I was grateful for the opportunity to spend a few minutes with him last January, where he spoke with so much pride and joy about his wife and daughters. Gushed would be a more accurate term.

Arnold was raised in a home of great warmth and generosity and I know he passed those gifts to his own family. He always had a smile on his face and a ready laugh waiting for an opportunity to warm a room. Those that knew Arnold were better for having him in our lives. To have him taken from all of us so young and so suddenly is very hard to understand.

There are no words that can adequately convey the goodness of Arnold as a person, nor are there words that can be said by those that knew him that will replace his loss to those he loved the most. Our thoughts, our tears and our prayers go out to his family.

Dave and I send our sincere sympathy to you and your dear family, Terri Lynne. Oh, our prayer is that our precious Lord will be a balm to your heart and soul. We remember him as a young man at church and especially loved his mom and dad, Lorne and Katie. This is only a temporary separation and, some day, we will be together again in heaven for all eternity. God be with you all. Dave and Kathie Schiedel, Calgary, AB.

I remember meeting Arnie years ago when we were involved on the set up teams at Community Church. We quickly became friends and even though we moved away from each other, every time we would meet it was like we had just seen each other. He was a great guy, who lived out the greatest command. He loved God, his family and everyone else. He will be missed by all. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

We extend our deepest condolences to the whole family. Arnie was a great friend and I will miss our coffees and time together. Arnie was always upbeat and loved his family and was devoted to them. He had a heart for fellow Christian men and loved the Lord. He will be rewarded for the testimony he lived. He has left us too soon, but we'll meet again. Love, Jim, Jennifer, Ethan and Rory Collins

We are so sorry for your loss. We remember the golf tournaments Arnold would organize at the church and the family BBQ at your home. He was always so friendly and caring. Lots of Love and Prayers, Chantel & Brian Beal
