Carl Douglas Martin

It is with great sadness that we have to let Carl go. He passed away on Sept. 27, 2015 in the Campbell River Hospital at the age of 80 years.

Carl is survived by his wife Gerri and his family – children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Carl was a man who loved his family above all else.

Carl was a bus driver for years, based out of Nanaimo, driving up and down the Island. When Carl and Gerri retired in their 50’s, they took up RVing throughout the States, Mexico and Canada, belonging to the “Coast to Coast”. While RVing Carl and Gerri made a host of friends wherever they went. They enjoyed North America like no one ever has.

Once Carl’s health went downhill, Carl and Gerri settled in Campbell River. Ever the social couple they made many friends here. Carl enjoyed going on his scooter down by the ocean and spending time with family. Carl never let his Parkinson’s define him but always lived life to the fullest.

A special thanks for the professional, compassionate care that was given to Carl by the staff on the 2nd floor at the Campbell River Hospital. Also, a special thanks to the Campbell River and District Adult Care Society for their care and compassion for Carl over the last few years.

There will be no service by request. Donations may be made to the SPCA.
