We are sad to announce that Eric passed away peacefully at his home on July 16, 2020 at the age of 30. He is survived by his parents Greg and Lisa Martin, brothers Steve (Stacey) and Shaun, baby niece Hailey, grandparents Doreen Watson and Bill Watson (Carol). He was predeceased by grandparents Doralis and Peter Martin.
Eric was born in Winnipeg and moved to Richmond BC when he was three years old. At five years old the family moved to Calgary, where he made many good friends. Eric was sad to leave Calgary at eleven when the family moved back to Winnipeg, where he once again easily made many new friends.
He attended Beaverlodge elementary, Ness middle school and graduated from Westwood Collegiate in 2008. He was a gifted artist, musician and poet and left us to cherish his artistic works.
Eric had a kind and compassionate heart towards those less fortunate and was a lover of all animals. He had a strong bond with all of his many pets throughout his life. Eric worked as a window washer and especially loved the view from high up on buildings dangling from a chair or on a platform.
Through Eric’s poetry he expressed his belief in a free and happy afterlife. It is comforting to know that Eric is at peace.
Due to Covid 19, a private family celebration of life will be held at a future date.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Eric’s honour to Bruce Oake Recovery Centre at www.bruceoakerecoverycentre.ca< back to obituary listing
