Michael Joseph Martin
July 16, 1967 – June 14, 2022
Michael passed away peacefully at Lakeridge Health Oshawa on June 14, 2022, with his family at his side. He will be deeply missed by his children, Aiden and Faith and wife, Mia Tsuji. Also by his mother, Betty Martin (Mike) and siblings Cathy Lawes (Rick), Jim Martin (Pauline), Kim Evans (Jack) and Rebecca Martin (Dave Brown), their families, many cousins, aunts, uncles and friends. It seemed like Mike knew everyone!
Michael (Mike) attended Robert L Bordon HS and went on to George Brown College then worked at W. Mitchell & Son from the age of 17 and grew into a minor partnership into the Company and family. He continued on from there in the Industry of Mechanical Contracting and Plumbing with UA Local 46 where he was known and loved by tradesmen everywhere.
Mike will be remembered for having the biggest heart, his generosity and his thoughtfulness. He was there for anyone who needed him, often with a wrench and/or a smile. He loved riding his Harley with his buddies and he loved a good game of golf (if you followed the etiquette). Mostly, he will be remembered for his laughter and fun-loving nature and the life and love he shared with Mia, Aiden, Faith and beloved dog, Abby.
