The Martin Family

$27,780 of $25,000 goal

Created December 25, 2018
Our community is coming to terms with the loss of Rob Martin, whom sadly passed away on Christmas eve. 

At this time our thoughts are with Maree and their beautiful children Jack, Will and Annie.

Together,  we can help ease the financial burden that comes with an unexpected loss like this. This fund will help with any funeral costs and family expenses so that Maree and the children can take the time they need to grieve.

No amount is too small, together we can make a difference. Please feel free to share a message or photo to the family.
We are all here for the Martin’s now and forever.

Please be aware that Friday is going to be a scorcher...
The family and I want to let you know that we would prefer it if you dress accordingly. Suits and ties are not required, your presence is enough support. We are providing water at both the church and wake. Parking is limited and you may need to park in surrounding streets so allow time for a short walk.
Reminder that: His Funeral is at St Brigids at 1.30 in Mordialloc and Wake at St Louis Aspendale afterwards.

thanks again for your support, prayers and kindness at this time...

My best friend left me on Christmas Eve, my heart aches at the loss but thankful for the beautiful children we have created.

I am lost for words for the love and support that has flowed from our community.... Rob was such a presence, that his loss is creating an effect across the world.

He is in heaven with our daughter Emily and my Mum, watching over us tonight and always.

I’m sure he will be keeping a close eye on his beloved Bayside Hockey Club and the Mighty tigers. As well as making sure his brothers (and wife) ( and jack) return his tools to where they belong!!

To my neighbours who tried to help me save Rob and the 15 men and women emergency response team that worked in 38 degrees for over 45 mins , it’s not your fault, we did all we could. God needed him more.

Thank you for your support, love and generosity . It helps to know that if I fall there is someone there to catch me... now that Rob is gone.
