OBITUARY

Edwin Thompson Martin

December 13, 1931October 5, 2019

It is with profound sadness that the family announces the peaceful passing of E. Tom Martin Sr. on Oct 5 at Peace Arch Hospital at the age of 87. Thanks to the staff at Peace Arch and the many doctors for all of their support on Tom’s journey.

He is survived by his children and spouses Tom & Sue, Lisa & Rick and Jon & Lynne; grandchildren Erik, Dylan, Mavelin-Ray and Craig; the Rosengren, Anderson, Burkosky, Kary and Carlsen clans. He was the last man standing of his generation. He joins his wife Jo-Anne, parents Tom & Lillian, sister Maureen and her husband Kelly.

He was the most wonderful man, caring for his partner Joan in immeasurable ways for the last 12 years. He loved his family dearly. His children and grandchildren were never far from his thoughts and he was deeply proud of the wonderful people they had become. His keen interest in technology allowed Dad to be in touch with those near and far on a daily basis and to be a part of all events, celebrations and travels. Our Dad was kind, had a great sense of humour, honourable, compassionate and loyal and we honour him with our commitment to follow his example.

He lived a fantastic life and never looked back but towards the future with optimism, hope and love. He was dearly loved and will be missed always. Rest in peace Dad.

In lieu of flowers please donate to the Heart & Stroke fund.
