It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Fernand Martineau on Tuesday, July 21, 2020 at Health Sciences North in his 97th year. Married for 70 years, he was the beloved husband of Annette (nee Vandette). Loving father of Gerald (Lennie), Carole Evelegh (Mike) and his primary caregiver Roger. Proud grandfather of Renee, Kevin and Owen. Cherished Great Grandfather of Ro and Madeleine. Brother of Rita from Montreal. Fern was born in Montreal and spent his childhood in Hearst, ON where he met his beloved Annette. They moved to Sudbury where they raised their family. Dad was a good provider for his family working as a Hoisting Engineer. He built the family home with the help of friends in the Northern Heights region of Sudbury. Dad contributed many years of volunteer time to Saint-Jean-De-Brébeuf church, where he was a devoted attendant. In keeping with Fern’s wishes, there will be no service or visitation.
