Obituary of George Martin

He has "slipped the surly bonds of earth..." A resident of Chatham and formerly of Wallaceburg, George E. Martin died peacefully at home on Tuesday, October 17, 2006 at the age of 62 after a courageous battle with cancer. Beloved husband of Sue (Maybee) Martin for 39 years. Loving father of Tim and Christine Martin of Oakville and Dan and Carolyn Martin of Chatham. Much loved grandpa of Thomas George Martin of Chatham. Born in Strathroy, son of the late Kenneth and Vivian (Mitchell) Martin.

Brother-in-law of Loretta Martin of LaSallette, Sandi and Duane Howes and Ted and Betty Maybee, all of Thunder Bay. Also survived by several nieces and nephews.
