With sadness and heavy hearts, we announce that Arnold James Martin passed away suddenly on Friday, March 9th, 2018 at the age of 56.
Arnold was a loving, hard-working, patient, and generous man. He led the Men’s Ministry for many years at Calvary Baptist Church and Grace Bible Church. He loved to spend his time hiking and biking outdoors. He was an awesome driver in Truck Rodeos, often taking home the top prize. He also performed in many plays for churches and Audience of One.

He is survived by his wife Terri-Lynne (nee Bookhout), daughters Brittany and Natalie (boyfriend Peter), mother Katie (nee Brubacher), sisters Shirley Gingrich (Gord) and Jane Kinsie(Bob), sisters-in-law Wendy Bookhout, Karen Bookhout, and Michelle Oates, brothers-in-law Mark Bookhout (Linda), and many nieces, nephews, and extended family members. He will be deeply missed and forever remembered by all of them.
