MARTIN, Angus C. - 1937-2008 In loving memory of Angus C. Martin who passed away on November 28, 2008. Angus is survived by his five children, Leonard of Val Caron, (children Quinn, Caelum, Joshua (Australia), David of Hanmer, (Children Jessica, Derek), Suzanne (husband Lionel) Labelle of Ladner BC, (children Shawn, Amanda), Kenneth (wife Tracey) Martin of Ladner, BC, (daughter Kenna), Stephanie (husband Dan) Francelj of Suffield, Connecticut (children Brianna and Tatianna). Also, his ex-wife Rochelle, mother of his 5 children. As well as his companion from surgery earlier this year. We have no doubt that without her we would not have had him to this point. He also leaves to mourn his loss, his siblings, sister Marian (Lally) Fasan, Sister Maxine Fauteux, sister Grace (Barney) Bienas, sister Elsie Onotsky, brother Allan (Marge) Martin, sister Barbara (Richard) Maki, brother Bill Rheanne Martin, brother Alfred (Fran) Smith, brother Milton (Donna) Smith. He also leaves behind many nieces and nephews as well as countless friends. Angus was predeceased by his parents William and Grace Martin and a brother Ronnie. Angus was an avid hockey player in his early years playing for the Timmins Lions, and later played in Tennessee for the Knoxville Knights. He returned to Timmins where he worked as a miner in various mines around the Porcupine Camp. He moved to Mississauga where he was employed with Raise Equipment, which then became Raise Contracting Ltd. He worked for many years in Elliot Lake under Raise Contracting in a supervisory position. He founded Ram Raising in partnership with JS Redpath and, although Angus later left the company, it is still operating in Timmins. He ventured out and formed his own mining company, Martin Mining and Tunnelling. He broadened his expertise, in such places as Fiji, Scotland, Indonesia, Australia, Greece, and the United States. He had contracts in Sudbury, Timmins, Quebec and throughout other areas of Canada. He was well known in the mining area as the Alimak Man. Angus was the driving force in 1972 when at Denison Mines, they drove the longest vertical raise of 1852 ft. coming through on Roman Island. For this achievement he was invited to Buckingham Palace, to attend a Queen's Garden Party. No job was ever too small or too big. One thing that can be said about Angus, he was always fair to the working man. Having been a miner himself he never forgot his roots. He was also an avid hunter, fisherman and was never happier than when he was in the bush. You could always count on him to get his moose. He was not one to let the grass grow under his feet. His father taught him the meaning of a hard days work and he instilled this in his children as well. He was the ultimate provider, doing and going wherever he had to, to ensure his family did not want for anything. Cremation was taken place with a celebration of his life to be held in Timmins, Ontario, in the spring. We hope that all who knew him will attend.
