Marty passed suddenly on March 6, 2021. Marty was born in Kamloops March 26, 1955 where he lived his 65 years. He leaves behind his wife of 41 years Laurel (Hanson) Wilms, son Justin, daughter-in-law Miyuki, and the lights of his life, granddaughters Himari and Honoa. The heartbreak of his life was being predeceased by his daughter Alison at age 15. Marty also leaves behind brothers Earl and Fred and sisters Lynn and Bonnie, predeceased by both parents John and Lily-Belle Wilms.
Marty worked at Safeway for 40 years before retiring 10 years ago. He was a home body who did not go out looking to socialize but was always happy to visit with family, friends and neighbours to chat and have a laugh. His questionable sense of humour and that laughter will be missed.
The arrival of his first grandchild 8 years ago brought a light back into Marty’s life. He was so happy to hear “Hi Grampa!” when his girls came through the door.
Bye Grampa – we will miss you.
There will be no funeral service.Print This Obituary & Condolences
