July 25, 1960 – August 31, 2008
On a bright Sunday morning Martin was killed on his motorcycle by a hit and run driver. Martin’s death has forever changed the lives of his family, beloved daughter, Zola and her mother Ann (Simon), his mother Pat Low (Dennis Wheatley), his father Ken Auld (Lorraine), dear sister Susan (J.P. Perkins), half-sisters Jenny and Megan (Bill), nephews Kahlil and Jaryn (Jen). He also leaves to mourn aunts, uncles, cousins and dear friends throughout Canada and abroad.
At age 8, Martin came with his family from Scotland to Victoria where he finished his schooling and became a journeyman carpenter under J.P.’s mentorship. The skill and care and honest practice with which he completed his work earned him the respect of his colleagues and clients.
Martin’s family and friends will remember him for the boundless love that he showed to Zola, his eclectic taste in music and literature and his sharp sense of humour.
Martin’s family extend our heartfelt gratitude for the care and respect shown us by the paramedics, emergency room nurses and physicians, coroner and the officers of the Victoria Police Dept.
Over 200 family and friends gathered to remember Martin at McCall Brothers Funeral Home in Victoria on Friday, September 5th.
