May 23, 1926- February 2, 2013
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Charlie. He passed away peacefully at his home in Cumberland with his loving family by his side.
Charlie was born in Shoal Lake, Manitoba. The family moved to the Denman Island/ Fanny Bay area in 1939. Charlie and his family settled in the Comox Valley where they lived for 74 years.
He will be sadly missed by all of his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren of five generations and his two faithful companions, Copper and Buddy.
Charlie is predeceased by his loving wife of 62 years, Margaret Martin. He is survived by his seven children, Joy Card (Ray), Garnett Martin, Kathy Kelly (John), Garry Martin, Noelleen Sexton (Al), Becky Walker (Wayne) and Robbin Frame (Robin). He is also survived by his two brothers, Bruce and Eric Martin (Beth).
The family would like to thank Dr. Woldnick and Dr. Hubner and the home support services. There will be no service as requested by Dad. We love you, always in our hearts, rest in peace. “Gone Fishin’”
