We are deeply saddened to announce that far too soon Martin has left the home and family he loved. Martin was born in Cranbrook and lived here all his years, thriving on a lifetime of hard work and outdoor recreations. He was predeceased by his parents Clarence (August 1982) and Shirley (Millner) Cloarec (April 2016) and stepfather John Millner (October 2011). Martin is survived by his loving wife, Rene; his son and best buddy, Trevor; his sisters, Lois Cloarec Hart (Day Petersen), Kathryn Sykes (Christopher), Laura Kennedy (D’Arcy) and Carol Waugh (Bob); nephew, Justin
Waugh, and nieces, Kristine Arinos, Kayle Sykes, Lindsay Waugh, Rachael Sykes, Brianna Kennedy and Devon Kennedy; brothers-inlaw Ervin Serediuk (Rose), Lloyd Serediuk (Cyndi) Michael Serediuk and Robert Serediuk and sister-in law Margie Serediuk; nieces and
nephews, Deanna, Mark, Dwayne, Jamie, Roslynd, Alyssa, Adam, Cory, Shauna, Breanna and Lina.
When we remember Martin, and we will do so forever, we will recall the twinkle in his eyes, the joy he took in his wife and family, and his deep love of talk, teasing and Trevor. Martin leaves behind
a thousand wonderful memories. We only wish we could’ve had time with him for a thousand more.
We invite you to a celebration of Martin’s life to be held at McPherson Funeral Home on Wednesday, September 7th at 11:00 am, followed by a reception. Martin was a blue jeans, T-shirt man and ball cap man so feel free to honour his customary casual dress when you join us in saying goodbye.
Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service.
