Many will remember Martin as he drove taxi in New Waterford. He had an empathetic soul and was always ready to lend a helping hand to those in need.  He also worked away for many years but was always happiest when home in New Waterford. Martin was also a member of the New Waterford pensioners club, and enjoyed the activities whether it was playing cards with friends or different community events, he always found happiness in the simple pleasures of life. 


Martin leaves to mourn his passing, brothers Tony, Dean, Jason, and Paul, as well as sisters Cynthia and Darlene. As well as several nieces, nephews,  numerous friends, and his special caregiver and aunt, Susie. Martin will be dearly missed by all those who had the privilege of knowing him.
