Martin was retired from the former Brunswick Mines where he worked as a draftsman for over 25 years. He was well appreciated for his wit, positive attitude, meticulous work and innovative ideas. A man of faith, above all else he loved his wife and family. He loved nature and spending time in the woods. He loved to draw, paint and woodcarving. More recently he enjoyed sitting in the sun with Roshie enjoying the view, the frequent visits from the deer in the back yard and teasing family, care workers and visitors alike with a heartfelt appreciation, a twinkle in his eye and a smile larger than life. Never one to shy away from an adventure, he will be greatly missed by family and friends.
The family would like to give a special thanks to the Extra Mural services and to Atlantic Quality Care team members: Maricelle, Emiline, France, Anne, Fatou for their kindness, care and attention.
