Raymond Martin

Obituary of Raymond Martin

 

With great sadness, we announce the sudden passing of Joseph Raymond Martin, also known as Sandy, at his home on April 15th, 2021.

 

Raymond was born in Bathurst but raised in the area of Little Montreal, what would eventually be known as Campbellton NB. He was known for his kindness and generosity. From a young age, paper was his most precious possession, and with his brush as his favorite past-time, he became an artist. His inspiration as a painter comes mostly from nature.  His images, notably of winter came from his life in the Canadian wild, especially in the Arctic.  

 

His many travels made necessary by his work and, in particular, his life outside and in the forest, helped him see nature in its most beautiful expressions. His greatest joys came from knowing that his paintings became the object of satisfaction each time they are looked at.

 

Although well travelled, he was always at home when in the areas of Campbellton, Fredericton, and Geary NB. 

 

Raymond was predeceased by his first wife, Yvonne Blaquiere; brother, Bobby; and his loving dog, D.J. 

 

He leaves behind his sister, Lorraine Perron (Eugene Savoie); and his loving wife of 40 years, Sandra (Gilmore) Martin;  eight children, Louise (Gerald), Sylvie (Michel), Michel (Loralee), Nora (Marc), Jessica (Jen), Melissa (Billy), Christopher and Sarah.

 

Raymond also leaves behind his grandchildren, Jacques, Justin, Melanie, Monica, Melissa, Melinda, Frederic, Kayla, Kevin, Megan and Parker; and great grandchildren, Logan, Madeline, Jamieson and Zoe.   

 

Arrangements are in the loving care of York Funeral Home’s Miramichi Valley Chapel. In respect to Raymond’s final wishes, there will be no visitation or service at this time.  A service in his memory will be held at a future date. 

 

Raymond was a devoted member of the Knights of Columbus.  In honour of his memory, the family asks that any donations be directed through Knights of Columbus Branch 8409 (Jean Claude Power 506-459-3885).
