Martin, Ronald James

It is with great sadness that our family is announcing the passing of our beloved, Ronald James Martin. 66 years old, Ronny was born on April 30, 1953 to Thérèse Desormeaux and James Reid Martin (pre-deceased) in Sudbury, Ontario. He was a loving brother to Helen Morrow (Butch - predeceased), Joan Brooker (Bob) and Carole Restoule (Brian). He leaves broken hearted, his wife for 45 years, Gisèle (Mazerolle), their two sons Russell and Curtis (Mélanie Francoeur) including two grandchildren, 10-year-old Félix and 7-year-old Alexie whom he cherished. He was much loved by his family and friends. He touched the lives of many, far and wide, having travelled around the world for Mining Technologies now known as Komatsu. He will be greatly missed by his mother in-law Eva Mazerolle, his sisters in-law Joanne Quagliara, Yollande Nepssy (Danny), Lise Rickman (Glenn) and his brother in-law Conrad (James). He will also be missed by his nieces, nephews and many cousins, especially Claude Desormeaux and his with Noëlla. It was a cold but sunny day when my Ronny Boy quietly slipped away on Tuesday, November 5th, 2019, at approximately 1:00 pm. He was a wonderful loving husband, father, father in-law and grandfather. He was our source of comfort, love, joy, companionship and strength, our best friend. He was good hearted and eager to help anyone in need, especially his family, friends and neighbours. He was a great storyteller, fun loving but most of all he treasured his family and friends. He was a good man. The memories we shared, all the laughs and the love that you gave us will always be cherished, always. So, thank you for giving us the best days of our lives. A Funeral Mass will be held at Ste Marguerite d’Youville Catholic Church on Municipal Road 69N in Val Thérèse on Tuesday, November 12, 2019 at 10:00 am, followed by a Celebration of Ronny Boy’s Life. Donations would be greatly appreciated if made directly to the Samaritan Centre or the Elgin Street Mission.

  2. Ron was a very down to earth , honest, to the point, detailed , man as I recall him in my 1985 to 2000 Mining Equipment Product manufacturing & supply times together. He was funny, but serious as required, in the same conversation. He will be sadly missed by many, both family, and his many friends from his many years in the Mining Equipment Manufacturing and Supply Industry.

In all that time I can honestly say he was the guy you would want to call your friend. He was caring, kind hearted and fun loving. I am proud to say that you were our friend Ron. You will be missed and you will always be in our hearts. Until we meet again. Love Always. Allan, Debbie, Adam and Matthew.
