Martel, Jean-Paul “J.P.”

The family announces with great sorrow the passing of Jean-Paul (J.P.) Martel, 61 years, on Friday, January 8th at Health Science North.  He passed away peacefully, after a brief illness, with family members at his side. J.P. was the beloved son of Jeannette Martel (Thibault) and the late Conrad Martel. Dear brother of Fernand (Betty-Anne Vanier), Gerald (Colette Boucher), Robert (Francine Lachapelle). Predeceased by Carmen (Marc Vaillancourt), Lise (Daniel Brazeau) and Normand. He will be missed by many aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbours, co-workers, and friends, especially his best buddies Terry and Roger. He leaves behind many nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews, that he treated as his own. He was especially looking forward to the arrival of his newest great niece, scheduled to arrive in March.  Also greeting him in heaven with open paws is his beloved Ginger Lace. Born and raised in Sudbury, J.P. had an infectious personality and laugh and, a zest for life that made the room brighter when he entered. He worked at St-Pierre Flooring, and worked the last 14 years at Sudbury Carpetland, where he developed many friendships. He was a true outdoorsman.  He loved nothing more than spending time hunting, fishing, or bringing a gang for a sunset pontoon ride. He will be missed by many friends at LaCloche Lake, where he spent countless weekends and holidays. He enjoyed gardening, trying new recipes, and cooking for a crowd.  He loved to share stories of his shenanigans as a teenager or his heydays living in Calgary.  He will be sadly missed, and we take comfort knowing that he is smiling down at us. Arrangements have been entrusted with Ranger’s Cremation and Burial Services Ltd., however due to the current pandemic, a Celebration of Life will take place at a later date, when it is safe to do so. In the meantime, family & friends are asked to remember the special moments they had with J.P. and to pull-out photos, so that we may cherish at a Celebration of Life, date to be confirmed. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Northeast Cancer Centre would be appreciated.
