It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing
of Jimmy « Papa » Martin on August
29th, 2019. He leaves to
mourn his loving wife, Rayma (Crawford), daughter, Holly (Steven),
daughter Shelley (Jamie), son Cory (Kim), son Jamie, and step-sons
Tony and Kerry. Papa also leaves behind his 16 beautiful
grandchildren: Drew, Bree, Cooper, Charley, Quinn, Brady, Wyatt,
Makai, Mateya, Malix, Maddox, Joshua, Jacob, Chloe, Megan and Keisha,
as well as two great-grandchildren, Izabella & RJ. Jimmy is
also survived by all seven of his siblings: Glenna (Steven), Faye

(Linda), Glenn (Kathy) and his loving mother, Margaret (Peggy) Martin,
of Woodstock, NB, as well as two foster brothers Chris Bartley and
James Tucker, several nieces and nephews, and his beloved dog, Lindor.
He was predeceased by his father, Glenn Ervine. Jimmy was a
loving son, father, husband, grandfather, and friend to
Jimmy enjoyed his seasonal work with the D.O.T crew, snow
plowing in the winter, and the odd construction project. He loved
cooking, hunting, fishing, playing cards & poker, relaxing at
the camper, watching sports on TV, but above all, he loved spending
time with his grandkids and attending all of their events and games.
He was, undoubtedly, their Papa. Jimmy was known to many, and he loved
to talk and tell jokes. He was always teasing and making fun, but
brought smiles to everyone around him. He was always willing to lend a
helping hand to whomever was in need.
A special thank you to Dr. Chatur & the emergency
staff at URVH, as well as the trauma team at the Saint John
