Edgar passed away peacefully on Friday, April 28, 2023, surrounded by loving family by his side, at St Gabriel's Villa, Sudbury, after suffering from a long illness. Predeceased by his loving partner, Angele Piro. Loving father of John St. Martin (Lora Grande), and Chantal St. Martin. Fondly remembered by the mother of his children, Lilliane Dignard (née Dufresne). Cherished grandfather of Sarah Collie, Kaitlin Schneider, Laura Collie, and Alysha Schneider.

Dear brother of Raymond St. Martin (predeceased), Claire Pellatt (Earl), Armand St. Martin (Sharon), Suzanne Godin (Tony predeceased), Denis St. Martin (Janet), and Andy St. Martin. Sadly missed by many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Born in Sudbury, Edgar had moved his young family to British Columbia, where he worked as a hard rock miner, until his retirement.
