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. Iqbal Khurshid celebrant. A private interment will follow in the Hillside Cemetery. As an expression of sympathy donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
