1933 ~ 2018
Mr. Maurice “Moe” Martin of Lethbridge, beloved husband of the late Mrs. Betty Martin, passed away on Tuesday, January 23, 2018 at the age of 84 years.
Born to fly but learned to run at the Warner Highschool, Moe excelled due to the fact his dad was the principal (there was some retaliation from classmates haha). Moe moved on to Edmonton to get his (Bac) which he said stood for “Bounced At Christmas Degree.” At this point, being in the air was the place for Dad, so he joined the RCAF for a 5 year stint.
Moe met his future wife Betty in a bowling alley and eventually they had the Martin Brothers (Mitch/Murray). Out of the military, Pa took up being a spray pilot, convincing Betty that spraying was much safer than being a stunt pilot (air shows). As we know, Moe became one of Time Airs number one airplane pilots and Moe’s knowledge was shared with all above and beyond.
Mom and Dad retired to Desert Hot Springs where they enjoyed 12 years… they were very accommodating to all who visited for a stint in the 3 day hide a bed…
A Memorial Service will be held at 10:00am, Monday, January 29, 2018 at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL, 610 – 4th Street South, Lethbridge, Alberta.
Final Debriefing to follow at the 702 Wing Lethbridge Airport. Open to all, Captain’s Treat!
