February 4, 1958 — January 1, 2018
GREENWICH — Timothy P. Martin, 59, best known as “Tim Martin,” a lifelong resident of Greenwich (OFG), passed away unexpectedly of natural causes on Monday, Jan. 1, 2018 at a family camp on Summit Lake.
He was born Feb. 4, 1958 in Cambridge to the late Gerard and Anne Arnold Martin.
Tim was best known for being a loving, devoted husband, father and one hell of a grandfather to his three grandchildren, Adilynn, Finnegan and Nora. He was probably the funniest man alive, who’s great sense of humor shines through in the hundreds of stories and one liners throughout his life. His compassion for others and the countless lives of those he touched around him made him the humblest man there was.
He married the love of his life, Catherine Foley Martin, on Aug. 29, 1981, and moved to Greenwich, where they were happily married for 36 years. They raised two amazing sons together, Caine and Patrick. He was a hardworking employee who took great pride in working for National Grid for 32 years.
Hobbies he enjoyed were hunting, fishing and playing the ukulele as only Tim Martin could for his family and friends. His best times were spent on Summit Lake, driving around on Captain Pa’s boat with his beloved grandchildren.
In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by brother-in-law Timothy Healey.
Survivors include his loving wife, Catherine Foley Martin; sons, Caine (Heather) Martin and their children Adilynn and Nora, and Patrick Martin and his child, Finnegan; brothers, Peter (Christine) Martin of California and Dan (Cindy) Martin of New York; sister, Margaret Healy of Virginia; mother and father-in-law, Janet and Tom Foley of Maine; brothers-in-law, Mike, Sean and Matthew Foley; several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
A funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 5 at St. Joseph’s church in Greenwich with the Rev. Martin Fisher officiating.
Family and friends may call from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 4 at Flynn Bros. Inc. Funeral Home, 80 Main St, Greenwich, NY 12834.
Donations in Tim’s name may be made to Argyle EMS or the Greenwich Fire Department.
