Denis was born October 21, 1950 in North Battleford, Saskatchewan to Blanche and Telseford Martel. He peacefully passed in his sleep in Victoria, BC October 16, 2018. Denis is lovingly remembered by his wife of 44 years Carol, his two boys Len and Chris (Debbie), his three precious granddaughters Alexa, Chelsea and Courtney, his brother El, sister Aline and many friends and relatives.
Denis’s family was the utmost importance to him and he lived and cared deeply for them. He was extremely well known and respected by the Lake Cowichan community where he resided and was avid wildlife conservationist advocating countless hours to Wilderness Watch and many other activities such as his favorite hockey team. He loved to spend time watching the Montreal Canadiens and worked many years at the Youbou sawmill. As one of the habs most loyal fans, the town could always hear Denis when he was watching the habs and they scored.
Denis will be dearly missed by his family and community but will never be forgotten and always loved.
Go Habs Go!
