Obituary

MARTIN, Glenn Murray
February 5, 1941 – June 5, 2021

Mr. Glenn Murray Martin, age 80 years, passed away in the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre on Saturday, June 5, 2021.

The son of the late Ernest and Muriel Martin of Hamilton, ON, Glenn is predeceased by Carol, his loving wife of 53 years; sisters Velma Gavey and June-Marie Provost; brother Robert Martin; and brothers-in-law and best friends Ralph Gavey, Jim Burrows and Ross McDonald.

He is survived by his children David (Susan) of Thunder Bay, ON, Cindy of Vancouver, BC; his grandchildren Breanne, Bradley, Nicole and Jack; siblings Marlene Burrows, Myrna-Gail McDonald, Gord (Linda) Martin and Doug (Karen) Martin; brother-in-law Terry Provost; and sister-in-law Nancy Ricketts (Richard). He will be missed by his nieces, nephews and friends.

Glenn enjoyed a 35 year career at the Province of Ontario Savings Office, where he held the position of Regional Manager of Central Ontario, being given the opportunity to work all over Ontario. He especially enjoyed his time transitioning the branches from paper to computer based banking, consulting with small communities in Northern Ontario for their banking services and the many colleagues who became lifelong friends.

Glenn’s retirement was robust, and characterized by global travel with Carol, where they enjoyed learning about different countries and cultures, as well as sampling great food and wine. He fully embraced his role as Grandpa, not letting distance get in the way of having a close relationship with his kids and grandkids. A sarcastically said, “Oh Grandpa”, was a common refrain from the grandkids.
Glenn lived a full and wonderful life, with incredible zest. He recently moved to Thunder Bay ON to live with David and Susan and was excited about his new surroundings. Ultimately, he was a romantic and never truly recovered from the passing of his wife, Carol in 2018. May they share a bottle of wine, while cheering us on from above.

Respecting Glenn's wishes private funeral services will be held at a later date. Arrangements have been entrusted to EVEREST FUNERAL CHAPEL, 299 Waverley Street at Algoma.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to Sunnybrook Foundation Palliative Care or Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation in Glenn’s name.

Glenn took me under his wing when I started work as a ledger keeper at POSO Bay & Adelaide branch in March 1969. As a shy, freckled faced 18 year old, with a bad haircut and a funny accent, I had emigrated from Northern Ireland two weeks earlier.
Glenn immediately made me feel welcome, even with the language barrier! He taught me how to skate at Fenside Arena, got me watching Expos baseball and Leafs hockey, and cheering for the Ticats (never the Argos). Joanne and I will be forever grateful to Glenn and Carol for their friendship.
Thank you Glenn. Rest in Peace.

I met Glen the day he moved into the condo building here in Thunder Bay. He was a true gentleman who was always smiling and willing to take time to start up a conversation. I met up with him many times while we were out for our walks and started to learn more about him. We will miss seeing Glen. His sudden death has touched many people who only knew him for a short time. Donna Pento

Although we only met Glen since he moved to Thunder Bay, it was a pleasure to see him daily as we passed on our walks. His kind gentle nature was a reflection of the man he was, our condolences to his son & family.

I am sad to hear about Glenn’s passing. I joined POSO in 1973 and retired 2012 as a branch manager (we were Meridian by then). I remember Glenn very well. He was always ‘hands on’ and ready to assist. I particularly remember the transition to a computer based system and I’m amazed at how smoothly it went. My condolences to the family. He will surely be missed.
