David Patrick Martin


It is with great sadness to announce that David Martin (Dave) passed away on October 6, 2019. He leaves to mourn his children; daughters Lorraine and Sandra (Kevin), son Ivan Meyer (Helen); his brother John (Janet) and sister Ann. He was predeceased by his beloved wife Janice. Dave was born in England and after exploring the world with the Merchant Navy, settled in Canada in 1964. His penchant for travel was later shared with Janice as they explored their world on road trips. He took great pride in his long career with Loomis/Securicor until he retired in 2010. He received great comfort in his final years by his 2 precocious cats, Smokey and Jasper.

Sandra Martin

Remembering your goofy Dadness. Like when you took me shoe shopping at 12, and I almost convinced you to buy me heeled red strappy sandals until you thought you should check with Mum. Ooh, the blistering storm that came through the telephone line. I could hear it from 10 feet away… Miss those moments. And your stories from your adventures in the Merchant Navy. Thank you for those. Love.

My sincere condolences to my wife Sandra, and to Lorraine and Ivan on Dave’s passing. I loved hearing his stories about his time in the Merchant Navy, about his many travels, and about the early days of the family’s move to Canada. He and his kind and gentle nature will be missed.
