June 3, 1926 ~ December 27, 2015
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Arthur on December 27th, 2015. Surviving him are wife Joyce White, sons Lane McMartin (Nora), Lonn McMartin, Lynden McMartin (Tania), and daughters Lana Blair (Mark) and Lora McMartin (Harley). He will also be missed by his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, two sisters, two brothers, his best little buddy Kilo, and many, many good friends. He was born in Bracken, Saskatchewan on June 3, 1926. He taught school in Saskatchewan, Alberta and BC, and loved the outdoor life wherever he was. Art was a very active musician, a founding member of the Old Time Fiddler’s Association – Branch 19, and was never happier than when he had his fiddle in his hand, and his friends and family surrounding him. A Celebration of Life will be held March 26th, at noon in the Courtenay Legion.
