It is with profound sadness that the family of Bob Martin announces his passing on November 27, just over two weeks since the death of Anne Martin, his wife. Bob is survived by his two sons, Peter (Merle) and John (Andrea), Linda Martin and his grandchildren Graham, Rachel, Robbie and Beth. He is also fondly remembered by his extended family as well as numerous friends and colleagues.
Bob was born on March 17, 1933 to John and Sheila Martin and spent his formative years in Sooke, BC. Following an apprenticeship as a boilermaker, he traveled the world before marrying Anne. Moving to Prince George in 1965, Bob took up a position as a welding instructor at the College of New Caledonia before retiring in 1993 as Dean of Trades. Active in civic politics and social causes, he also found time to keep bees, assist his wife in the garden and tinker with equipment.
A celebration of Bob’s life was held on December 1st at 1pm at St. Michaels and All Angels in Prince George.
