December 21, 1956 - June 20, 2018

 

On December 21, 1956, Richard “Rick” Martin was born in Edmonton, Alberta to Gerry and Joan Martin, becoming the younger brother to Bob, and Theresa (Tom), and older brother to Patrick, and Loretta (Marc).  In 1976, he met and fell in love with Marianella and on September 1, 1980 they devoted themselves to each other, by marriage, for the next 37 years.

With Marianella, he became the loving father to five daughters: Leanne, Melissa (Dave), Pamela (Chris), Lindsay, and Michelle; proud “Papa” to six grandchildren; and the admired “Uncle Richard” to many nieces and nephews.

Richard had a compassionate and caring heart, giving to the homeless, donating to countless charities, and appreciating animals and nature. Richard will be lovingly remembered and dearly missed by his family.

 
Rest peacefully, Papa.
  1. My deepest condolences to your family & you Lindsay. Your will soon come to realize just how much your father has influenced your life with all the little things you do like him . His wisdom & love will continue to guide you Lindsay. Love you Lindsay , bless you & your family

  2. I was tremendously saddened today to hear of Richard’s passing. I grew up in ” the hood” with Richard through much of our early education years at Ecole Grandin and College St Jean. Richard was a real character with a very dry sense of humour and someone who marched to his own drummer I have so many funny memories of hanging around with Richard during this time. It was only a couple of years ago that our paths crossed again for the first time in over 40 years and it felt great to see him again and catch up on old memories. My condolences go out to Richard’s wife family on their loss. We truly lost a good one and I will always think of him whenever I’m in Jasper.
