We Remember

MARTIN, Harold Charles (Hal)

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of a dear husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend. Hal is survived by his wife of nearly 59 happy and active years, Velma (Vel); his daughter Kathi (Lauren); his son Keary; three special granddaughters Jasmine (Rob), Amber (Dave), and Alessa; and adored great granddaughter Lexi. Hal was a journeyman wood patternmaker and a dedicated teacher in Castlegar for 24 years; actively engaged in sports all his life, and enjoyed a very long and active retirement in their special mountains with his loving wife, Velma.

A celebration of Hal’s life will be held in the Glen Meadows Clubhouse at 2:00pm on Saturday, June 28, 2014, at 615 Glenmeadows Road, Kelowna, BC.
