In memory of
Charles 'Chuck' Edward Martin
August 05, 1936 - September 05, 2018 - Age 82

Charles “Chuck” Edward Martin of Medicine Hat, passed away on Wednesday, September 5, 2018, at the age of 82 years, beloved husband of the late Tillie Martin. He leaves to cherish his memory four children, Brenda (Fred) Helman, Randy Martin, Rob Martin and Pam (Randal) Van de Mosselaer; eight grandchildren, Waylon (Lindsay) Helman, Christopher (Rhonda) Helman, Joshua (Trish) Helman, Jenna (Aaron) Krein, Nicole Martin, Stefan (Bonnie) Van de Mosselaer, Lucas Van de Mosselaer and Katia Van de Mosselaer; eight great grandchildren, Marek and Maddox; Brooklyn, Wyatt and Jake; Hunter and Hayden; Rhea; his stepmother Margaret Martin; his brothers and sisters, Rose Fortier, Michael (Rosalyn) Martin, Melvin (Mildred) Martin and Sharon (Ron) Hoffart; a sister-in-law Shirley Martin as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, Anna and Wendel Martin; his wife Tillie on August 21, 2007; one brother Ivan Martin, a brother-in-law Aime Fortier; four grandchildren, Danielle, Angel, Matthew and Odie Van de Mosselaer. Chuck was a big-hearted man that would do anything for anyone at any time. He loved his family and spent hours learning to keep in touch with them through computer technology. He was a jack-of-all-trades. He loved horses, farming, painting, wood working as well as watching and participating in baseball and curling throughout the years. He was a smooth-talking salesman that could sell to anyone and make them feel good while he did it. He loved going for coffee and talking about the good ol’ days with anyone that would listen. He spent 49 years with the greatest woman on earth which he said left his side way to early. He lived his life always believing “don’t worry, things will work out as they should” and then died just as he prayed he would - suddenly and at home. What a blessed man he was! Family and friends will gather for prayers in the PATTISON CHAPEL on Sunday evening at 7:00 p.m. The funeral mass will be celebrated in Holy Family Parish (1451 Strachan Road SE) on Monday, September 10, 2018 at 10:30 a.m. with Fr.

Dear Brenda, Pam, Randy and Rob,
I have such wonderful memories of your Mom and Dad. Your Dad had such a big heart and his easy-going way of being always made him a comfortable person to be around, even for me as a young child. My thoughts and prayers are with you. It's nice to think he and Tillie are together again and dancing in each other's arms. Love and blessings to you all.

I recieved news this morning of the kindest loving gentleman I had the priveledge to meet. We often skyped or emailed to talking on the phone. I listened to his problems and he also gave me a lot soul searching with mine. He would talk to me and tell me wise words like I was a part of the family. Pics of his children. and Grandchildren he was so proud of. His Grandboys curling to hunting and fishing. I will never forget him lots of laughs and lots of tears. Good Bye my friend until we meet again.
