John Thomas Martin


1960 – 2012

On Sunday, August 5, 2012, heaven was filled with smiles and hugs when John met up with his mom Bridget and

dad Andrew; his

brothers Alex and

Ned and baby sister Bridgie. Far too soon

his lifelong partner, friend and love Sharon, had to let him slip away after trying so hard to have him stay. Empty hearts will be abundant as he leaves behind

his children Dale (Tania) and Tamie (Don); his beautiful granddaughter Courtney whom he told “I love you” so very often; his brothers Bill

(Shirley), Andy (Nadine), Mike (Ruby), Maurice (Wanda), Rick (Gisela), Tony (Brenda); sisters Anna, Loll (Mike), Marg (Doug), Nell, Agnes

(Eric), Eileen and Bridgie (Jason); his extended family, brothers-in-law James (Carol), George (Bev) and Wayne (Niki); sisters-in-law Doreen, Vera and Lois and many many wonderful nieces and nephews who loved and adored him. He was a friend to them all.  John’s life will be celebrated in Newfoundland by his family back home and as well a celebration of John’s life will take place at the Clubhouse, 1132 Findlay Road, Kelowna, BC on Sunday August 12, 2012 from 1:00 pm to

3:00 pm.  Lengthy phone calls will be missed, that beautiful smile will be remembered, his

patience, his friendship and his gentle but

protective ways will continue on forever in the hearts of all those who loved him. The gentle giant will share his stories in heaven now

and keep the laughter alive.
