MARTIN, Thomas Hamilton

Thomas Hamilton Martin
September 3, 1955 – January 2, 2019

After a brief battle with cancer, Tom died surrounded by his family and best friend Greg Stuart at Lady Minto Palliative Care Suite on January 2, 2019.

Tom will be missed by his many friends in the Jazz music community on Salt Spring, in Vancouver, Calgary and Thailand.
Playing guitar was a life long passion that brought him much pleasure.
