Former Campbell River resident and business owner of Campbell River Restaurant Supplies-Your Kitchen Depot, Oscar Martinez passed away on September 30th, 2018.
A few words from us:
Oscar was one of the kindest people you could ever meet, and he touched the hearts of everybody he knew. He will be sorely missed. We will never forget him because he gave so much to remember. The head of our “family” . He always remembered the little things, a very generous man.
He always made me feel like I was special. He always had the right words to say when I was down. He wasn’t just our boss, he was our teacher, our biggest supporter, and a father figure. He made me feel like part of the family right from my very first day. He always made a point of letting us know how much he cared, by a gift, his words or the smile he gave.
This is one of Oscars favorite poems, he has shared this with so many people over the years
What if you slept
And what if
In your sleep
And what if
In your dream
You went to heaven
And there plucked a strange and beautiful flower And what if
When you awoke
You had that flower in your hand
Ah, what then?
-Samuel Taylor Coleridge
