MARTIN, Larry - It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we convey the passing of Larry Martin who passed away suddenly on Monday, September 2nd, 2019 at the age of 67. Son of the late Stewart and Leona Martin (née MacDonald). He is survived by his wife Carole (née Thiffault), and his brother Richard (Jaana). Fondly remembered by the Martin, Thiffault and Tingren extended families, including his many nieces and nephews, who were ingratiated with Larry by his constant ribbing and teasing. He will be dearly missed by all. Larry was born in Kingston and raised in the Escott and Gananoque area. A dedicated employee of Hydro One for over 26 years. Larry and Carole were avid and accomplished sailors and world travellers. They greatly cherished and enjoyed the company of their many friends, over their sailing years in the Gananoque/Kingston area. Larry was skillful at many activities, including carpentry, small-plane pilot, and fondness of music and playing guitar. The family will receive friends for a celebration of life, on Sunday, September 15th, at the Wartman Funeral Home - Kingston Chapel, from 12:00 to 3:00 pm with words to be said at 2:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate a donation to the Collins Bay Yacht Club Sailing School, or the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Online condolences at

Carole. It's the Goodfellows. We have the blue cover Limestone near the Marina office.We used to be on the 300 dock opposite Coral Wave with a C &C 35. Although we never got to know you and Larry we exchanged pleasantries every weekend when we would meet on the dock.

Our sincerest condolances at your loss.

We (S/V Equinox) would like to express our deep condolences on Larry’s sudden and tragic passing. Larry and Don D. on Dock 3 were the go to guys for us out of town boaters. He was always willing to give advice and share his experiences with us. He will be truly missed but you have some great memories that will help you in the days to come.

To my dear friend Larry, Martin

We are so saddened by the sudden loss of our long time true friend Larry.

We experienced and shared so many activities with Larry from his love of sailing, camping trips to Green Lakes and Picton, golfing in Mertle Beach, our trips to Mexico, Caribbean cruise, St Martin and Jamaica.
Many cherished memories snorkelling in prickly Pear at Saint Martin and sailing on the Americas cup in St Martin to snorkelling together in Tortola ...
lifetime memories!

Larry was so talented and always willing to help with any home improvement project that I attempted to tackle. From wiring to finished carpentry Larry offered his skills on so many projects over the last 35 years.

I enjoyed teaching and learning new songs with Larry on the guitar. He had such a passion to learn and play.

Larry; until we meet again:
And Irish proverb
may the road rise to meet you may the wind be always at your back may the sunshine warm upon your face and rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again may God hold you in the palm of his hand .

A true friend with so many gifts we are so glad that Larry was a big part of our life !

Kerry, Barb & Sophia

I saw Larry at family gatherings ....I will miss him !❤️

Our 2019 sailing season is marching on and, by the time you read this article, some boats will have been hauled out and winterized. This is hard to believe. But even more difficult to believe was the recent and unanticipated death of one of our longstanding club members, Larry Martin. This was truly a shock and very sad.

A death in the community gives one pause for thought and especially for reflection. Larry was not only a member of our club and our marina; he was also a true friend to our boating community. Larry's passing prompted me to reflect on the nature of friendship and its value. Friendship can be defined as a close relationship, an alliance or a close association. When I reflect on Larry, his personality and his contribution to those around him, the definition of friendship as "someone who takes a position in your best interests" immediately comes to mind. Larry contributed to those around him in many ways. He made things for people and their boats. He shared his sailing experience. He provided his electrical expertise to the marina. He also supported various CBYC clubhouse projects with the application of his electrical knowledge and experience. Larry shared his talents and his abilities to the benefit of those around him whom he wanted to see succeed. As someone has said, "friendship is not the big's a million little things." I'm not sure that I completely agree with that as I think for the marina and club, Larry's friendship was a big thing and he will be missed by many of us. As G. Randolf has so eloquently written, "True friends are hard to find, harder to leave, and impossible to forget." And so it is with our friend, Larry Martin. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Carole, as does our pledge to assist in any way that we can.

I will close with this important thought: there are small ships, and there are big ships but the best ships are friendships.

- Bill Amirault, Commodore, CBYC
