It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Andrew Martin. Andrew was predeceased by his mother and father and brother (Keith). Andrew leaves behind his wife of 30 years, Tracy, son James (Katrina) granddaughters Nya and Aftyn, daughter Tiana, and numerous family members and friends.
Andrew was born in Whitehaven, Cumbria, England and became a “Bobby” in London at the age of 19. He spent 5 years policing the city before immigrating to Canada and becoming an RCMP officer, working in Customs and Excise, Security Service and CSIS for 25 years. After retirement he joined Nanaimo Corrections Centre and spent 15 years there. He dedicated his life to law enforcement and was so proud of his accomplishments. Andrew loved reading, history, Harry Potter movies, days at Sprout Lake, spending time with his family, his beloved dog Ginger and a good stiff drink.
A Celebration of life for Andrew will be held at the Conference Centre in the Long Lake Inn, 4700 N Island Highway, Nanaimo, BC on Saturday August 15, 2015 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
