Alan James Martin, born August 9, 1935 born in London, England, passed away peacefully November 15, 2019. He is sadly missed by his loving wife Janet who has been by his side for 65 years. Part of his legacy includes his 6 children: Sandra (Shane), Judith (Steve), Janice (David), Melissa (Steve),Alan, Keith (Cheryl). Also missing him are his 9 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren, and 2 great great grandchildren. Alan immigrated to Toronto, Canada in 1965 to provide a good life for his family. He was a long time employee of Litton Systems Canada.
All who knew Alan or Big Al, were aware of his love and loyalty to the Toronto Maple Leafs and Blue Jays. Alan grew up with a passion for cars and especially loved the sport of Formula One.
Alan was a man of few words, but when he did speak, he spoke with truth, integrity and foremost, humour. We will all continue to wonder “what the raisin for that” really meant.
In lieu of flowers, Donations may be made to the Kidney Foundation or the Salvation Army.
