wall martin sqOur loving, grandfather, father, and husband, Martin Wall of Winkler, MB passed away on Tuesday March 22, 2016 at Boundary Trails Health Centre with family by his side at the age of 71 years. 

Susan, his wife for 49 years, his son, Jacob, his daughter-in-law, Margaret and his grandchildren, Amanda, Dustin and Tanisha will dearly miss Martin, as well as his brothers and sisters. Martin was predeceased by his parents, five older siblings, John, Jake, Tina, Mary and Henry and by three children who died at infancy. 

Martin was born on October 3, 1944 in Mexico. Martin was the second youngest of 11 children born to Jacob and Katharina Wall. Martin and Susan were married on July 30, 1966. They had their son, Jacob on April 1, 1968. They lived together in Belize before relocating to Canada in 1978. Martin accepted Jesus as his personal Lord and Saviour as a teenager and was baptized on May 17, 1964 at the Old Colony Church in Belize. For work, Martin moved houses, helped in the meat shop and worked at Monarch Industries for 27 years. He enjoyed repairing miscellaneous equipment and motors, fishing, going for coffee with friends in his spare time and had a love for animals. In the last couple of years made many trips to the scrap yard. He was known for his pranks and loved to spend time with his family and friends. He always helped his family however he could. 

Funeral service was held on Saturday March 26, 2016 at Zion Mennonite Church with interment at the Church Cemetery. The family wishes to express a special thank you to the staff at Boundary Trails Health Centre for their loving care, and to family and friends for all of their love and support. If friends so desire, donations may be made in Martin’s memory to the Canadian Diabetes Association. Grandpa, you will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed. We will always love you. 

We mourn; but not as those that have no hope, for we are awaiting a blessed reunion on that great and blessed resurrection morning. (2 Timothy 4:7-8).
