We want to share the sad news that our Oracle and friend, Martin, passed away peacefully in St. Catharines, Ontario on May 22, 2016.
For those of you who were familiar with Martin or read some of his posts, you know him as a person who had a good sense of humour and took pleasure in helping others. If he felt he could help, he wouldn’t hesitate to answer a question or join a discussion.
Martin was a huge contributor to our Community and during his time with us, he achieved so much including:
Martin was not only committed to our Community, he also felt strongly about helping out in his own community. He was a dedicated blood donor and a passionate protector of stray cats.
Looking back when I think of Martin, I see someone who was very meticulous, concise and straightforward. He was easily engaged by others and to me, he was more than just a Community member – he was a great friend. Martin, say hi to Bob & Sue!
In honour of Martin, please take the time to offer your help to someone in need. A small gesture goes a long way.

I cannot believe you are no longer with us Martin… I have to believe that God has bigger plans for you
You may be gone, but you will never be forgotten
Mother ship will also miss you
Its hard to believe that Martin is gone.
We had numerous stimulating conversations and always felt a positive vibe from him.
I will remember him as a gentle, caring, disciplined, principled and funny person and a good friend whom I wish I had the pleasure to meet.
Rest in peace, @Martin
Martin seemed like a genuinely wonderful person, and his abence has been felt here since his passing to be sure. My condolences to his friends and family.
Me too can't believe this. I've always wondered about his off time....
RIP be loved @Martin
We will never forget to © hang in there 🙂
Oh my, that was why we never saw him lately. That's hard.
He was one of the best PPL PM ever saw, and it will be hard to find one who can fill in his shoes.
Were it not for Martin's help, switching to PM would have been much more difficult for me. He had apparently infinite patience, but could be firm (maybe even snappish) when the situation warranted. Sincere sympathy to his family and to the PM community. He will be greatly missed.
