It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Edward Walter Martin of Fredericton, NB on Wednesday, October 14, 2020 at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital. Born on May 25, 1961 in Fredericton, NB, he was the son of Joan Ann (Leslie) Martin and the late Ambrose Joseph Martin. Ed was a lifelong resident of Fredericton; he graduated from Fredericton High School and became the sole owner of A1 Brickwashing. He fought hard to beat the cancer diagnosis, and worked at his business as long as he could, not wanting to give up. His favourite pastime was gathering with family and friends to play cards.
In addition to his mother, Ed is survived by his daughter, Tiffany Robyn Martin and her mother, Lisa (Gallagher) Henderson; his special friend, Rachel Comeau and her son, Loghan; his brothers, Gerald and Michael Martin, Elmer Martin, Jr., Ambrose and Aaron Carroll; sisters, Bernice (Buff), Shirley (Ted), Dorine (Melvin) and Raven (Rob); several nieces, nephews and cousins. Besides his father, he was predeceased by his grandparents, Walter and Eliza (Armstrong) Leslie, Alex and Mary Jane (Mazerolle) Martin, Gordon and Lillian (Grant) Daye, and his mother’s companion, Elmer Martin.
