Obituary of BYRON JACK MARTIN
BYRON JACK MARTIN
OCTOBER 27, 1943 – OCTOBER 6, 2023
Surrounded by the love of his family, Byron passed away at the Victoria Hospital just three weeks before his 80th birthday.
Mourning the loss of Byron is his loving wife of 58 years, Jenny, and their two sons Brent (Leanne) and Blaine (Olia), his brother Bill (Ruth), sister Kathy. Byron was predeceased by his parents Jack and Heddie Martin.
Byron grew up in the North End of Winnipeg, playing and excelling in many sports. He loved the Blue Jays, Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Winnipeg Jets.
It was on his way to play baseball (with glove in hand) at 15 years old that he met his love of his life, Jenny. Family was most important to Byron, from dinners, to family holidays, to family cottage time at Buffalo Point (Lake of the Woods). In fact, in 1979 Byron was the first president of the Buffalo Point Cottage Association.
Byron spent his early days in Consumer Finance Services as District Manager of Manitoba and Saskatchewan at AVCO Finance, associated with the AVCO cup of the original Winnipeg Jets of the WHA.
Byron later went on to a successful 40 year career in Real Estate with his family Jenny, Brent, and Blaine to form the Martin Family Real Estate Team at RE/MAX Performance.
Byron was a proud and lucky Irish man that will definitely find his pot of gold in Heaven at the end of the rainbow.
We love you always and miss you more than words can say.
