Martin Williams

Martin Williams

June 17th 1934 – April 10th 2014

Our wonderful Martin left us unexpectedly last week after seventy-nine great years. The kindest man in the world was a Father to Nick (Emily) and Rosalie, and a partner and best friend to Marie Beaudoin. The youngest of five, he outlived all of his siblings, and among many others close to him, he leaves behind Nick’s mother Jo Lundstrom (Nelly), nephews Oliver Coomes, Ian Ralston, and Evan Williams.

He will live on in the trees and garden he planted, the house he built, and the hearts of the countless people he touched. Martin, Dad, you will be dearly missed.

We ask that in memory of Martin, you do a random act of kindness and donate blood to the Red Cross in his name, as Martin was a Gold card blood donor. A celebration of life will be held in late May. Ads will appear to announce.
