ROBERT THOMAS MARTELL (published on September 24, 2011)

ROBERT THOMAS MARTELL 1938 - 2011 With heartfelt sadness, we announce the sudden passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend on Sunday, September 18, 2011. Bob was born in North Sydney, Cape Breton on December 27, 1938. He will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by wife Kay, sons Kevin (Suzanne) of Gimli, MB, Rob (Cindy) of Tampa, FL, Ross (Marie-Pierre) of St. Jerome, QC; his grandchildren: Cameron, JT, Ann-Charlotte, Angelique, and baby Alexandra, sister Pat (Jim Ryan) of Baddeck, NS, brother Aubrey (Cathy) of Bridewater, NS, sister-in-law Sharon of Regina, SK, nieces, a nephew and many cousins. He was predeceased by parents Cameron and Rose, and infant brother, Cameron. Bob marched west at the age of 19 to become a Mountie and served proudly for 25 years. He then established R.T. Martell Associates. Bob felt fortunate to have been associated with the Winnipeg Jets for 17 years as their NHL Security Representative, and then for another 15 years as the Manitoba Moose advisor and troubleshooter. He still actively played hockey and recently began enjoying his winters in Florida with Kay. Bob dreamed of his beloved Cape Breton often and thankfully he was able to visit one last time two weeks ago. For that we are all grateful. A memorial service will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 24, 2011 at Stonewall United Church, Stonewall Manitoba. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to be made to: Manitoba Slain Peace Officers Fund, C/O Eric Luke, 22 Bonnie Crescent, Stonewall, Manitoba, R0C 2Z0. As he often said: Home I'll Be, Home I'll Be. Rest In Peace Bob MacKenzie Funeral Home Stonewall 467-2525
