  24. I am very saddened to hear about the passing of Omer and I send my deepest condolences to his family. I had the good fortune to work with Omer for 15 years. As a Pipe Foreman, he seemed so effortlessly organized, efficient and professional; the “Martel” Pipe Gang always got the job done and done well. But more than his legacy in the pipeline world, he should be remembered for the great family man that he was. His love and support for his family over the years did not go unnoticed and was admirable. May all those memories of a life well lived help heal your heavy hearts.

  33. I just suddenly came across this obituary. My mother, Irene Rahn, was Omer’s cousin. My grandpa Ludger was the brother of Ernst Martel. Mom passed away in 2013. It’s good to think of this great family being reunited in Heaven as family member is greeted by family member. Ready to move in to the place/mansion prepared for us by Jesus. (John 14). I find great comfort in this. I hope you do too.

    Love Laura-Lee Rahn

    • Thank-you it’s definitely good to know that we have a big loving family.

  34. Over 4 years ago and still think about him quite a bit. He definitely radiated an energy and aura around him that made people feel good. The world is a lesser place without him here, but heaven became a whole lot better the minute he walked in.
    Bye for now
    Love 5
