PRINCE, Martin Andrew -
November 12, 1927 - September 3, 2020

Gone fishing! On September 3, 2020, at the age of 92, Martin’s life of quiet dignity came to a quiet end. Martin devoted that life to the things he held dear, family and fishing in and around Algonquin Park, usually, but not always, in that order. He grew up just outside the park’s gate on a small farm. The Great Depression put schooling beyond the eighth grade out of reach and forced him to assume the responsibilities of adulthood early. Despite his tough beginnings, he never complained and found happiness in the little things. Martin worked for the City of Burlington for 23 years, where he was well respected by his coworkers. He found much joy in his many years of retirement, fishing, hunting, camping, gardening, bird watching and spending time with his grandchildren who were a source of great pride.

He will be forever missed by Gloria (nee McKellar), his wife and best fishing buddy of 55 years, daughters Mairi (Bill Hourigan), Sue (Daryle Perrin), his son Adam (Paula Gregg), and grandchildren Abby, Mikhayla, Jack and Jessica. Ozzie and Paisley will dearly miss the treats he kept beside his chair.

A special thanks to Dr. Jansz, Dr. Garland and the amazing staff at Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital for their kindness and support. A special thank you to Emily, Tina, Alex, Olivia, Stefania, Ricardo, Priscilla and Mike.

We will always remember his words, “if you can’t put the worm on the hook, you can’t fish.” May you rest in peace, and may the fish always be biting in L’Amble Creek. xo

As per his wishes, Private Cremation has taken place. To celebrate his life a private family Memorial Mass will be held at Holy Rosary Church in Burlington. For those who wish, donations in memory of Martin to The Canadian Cancer Society would be sincerely appreciated by the family.

To the family of Martin Prince,
I am saddened to hear of Martin's passing. He was my mother's first cousin (Florence Prince of Wilno) and she often spoke fondly of him and Clemence and Uncle Mick and Aunt Tessie. Sending my thoughts and prayers to all of you.

Thank you for your message. It’s Martins daughter Sue. We were talking tonight and my mum would like to know your maiden name. She knows a lot about the family and is interested in knowing more. Perhaps we could exchange email addresses/ cell numbers. 😇

Thank you for your note. My dad enjoyed his years at the City of Burlington. That being said he didn’t pause for a second when he found out he could retire! He walked out that day and never looked back. He talked a lot about his years with the city. I occasionally run in to Paul Goodale and Ergul would visit him.
