Survived by his wife Ann Martin and 61 years of marriage.
Children – John - Wayne - Chuck - Mike & Fawn Martin
Brothers – Dave Martin – Greg Bybel & Sister Donna Phillips
He will be warmly greeted by his parents Mike and Mary Martin & his brother Stan.
A dedicated husband, a father of five, ironworker, steelworker, owner of his own businesses – Martinsons Welding of 100 Mile House & the original owner of the Iron Horse Pub of Sheridan Lake, no job was too big or small to take on.
An avid fisherman, enjoying any opportunity to take his family out for a day trip or spend a weekend at Bowers Lake - a family favourite spot with many good memories.
A pillar to his community and for over fifty years of dedication to the Lions International Club, dad was a force to be reckoned with.
He was part of a club who was either selling Lions tickets for charity, cooking breakfast at the New Life Community Kamloops, flipping burgers at a local charity event, helping to give children Abilities’ at Camp Winfield or finding a wheelchair for someone who was in need.
A wonderful man, husband, father, brother, uncle, grandfather, great grandfather and friend.
You are definitely a man who will be missed every day.
Sweet dreams dad.
A celebration of life will be held for family & friends at a later date.
