August 9, 1921 – June 26, 2008
Neil Martin was a true son of the Comox Valley. A descendant of early settlers, he was born in St. Joseph’s Hospital and raised in Headquarters. During WWII, he served in the R.C.A.F. For much of his life, Neil worked in the woods, first as a bush scaler, then a safety coordinator and finally as a bullbucker. Neil is predeceased by his parents Bob and Mildred Martin (nee: Pritchard), sisters Grace, Connie, and Muriel, and daughter Melody. He leaves behind his wife Eleanor, daughters Linda Martin and Susie Shaw (David), grandchildren Cindy Brown (Ryan) and Scott Shaw (Lee-Ann) and great-grandson William Robert Shaw. There will be a Memorial Service for Neil at Comox United Church on Saturday, July 5 at 1:30 p.m.
