THE HONORABLE MICHAEL EDWARD MARTIN Q.C.
Michael Edward Martin died on January 13, 2019 one month from his 93rd birthday. Born on February 16, 1926 in Brandon, Manitoba, Mike was a true gentleman who emanated kindness and lived his life with integrity and humility. Mike also had a curious intellect and a wry sense of humor which accounted for his many unique expressions.
Mike's proudest accomplishment was his family. He leaves his wife of 59 years, Elizabeth (Beth Ann Joy) Martin; and his children and their spouses, Elizabeth Monk (Peter), Michael Martin (Margot Stokreef), Julia Martin (Matthias Falkner) and Catherine Martin; as well as eleven terrific grandchildren. He is predeceased by siblings, Jack Martin, Maureen Schroeder and Sheila Lacroix. He leaves many loving nieces and nephews. Mike taught us that there is no greater pleasure on earth than a "Happy Family Time".
A veteran of the Royal Canadian Navy in the second World War, Mike earned a law degree at the University of Manitoba and first worked as a lawyer in that province. He later moved his practice to St. Catharines, and then to London in 1963 where he became the Crown Attorney, and eventually the Regional Crown Attorney for Southwestern Ontario in 1986, Mike was made Director of Crown Attorneys for Ontario at the Ministry of the Attorney General in Toronto.
In 1988, he was appointed as a Judge of the Ontario Court. Mike was a tough but fair adversary and judge, whose skills in the courtroom are renowned. He was also a role model, mentor and comrade to many colleagues in the "law business", as he liked to call it.
Cremation has taken place. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Saturday, January 19th at 11:00 a.m. at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, 73 Picton Street, Niagara-on-the-Lake. A reception to follow.
Rather than sending flowers, please do something nice with your family and think of Mike.
Arrangements entrusted to Morgan Funeral Home, 415 Regent St., Niagara-on-theLake. Memories, photos and condolences may be shared at http://www.morganfuneral.com

DR. JOHN KILLORAN WILSON
March 27, 1925 January 13, 2019
Passed away peacefully on January 13, 2019 after a brief illness and surrounded by his loving family.

Predeceased by infant daughter, Mary Catherine; his parents, William and Teresa Wilson; and his nine brothers and sisters.
John was a proud graduate of St. Michael's College School in 1943 and achieved his medical degree from the University of Toronto (U of T) in 1948, having been elected to the AOA Honour Medical Society. After 6 years post graduate study in Internal Medicine and Cardiology - the last year in London UK, on an RS McLaughlin Travelling Fellowship - John successfully achieved his FRCPC degree and joined the medical staff at St. Michael's Hospital in addition to the Faculty of Medicine at U of T.
St. Michael's Hospital took a leadership role in the care of cardiac patients. John was an integral part of the team that performed the first successful heart transplantation in Canada in 1968. In 1970, he was appointed the first Chief of Cardiology at the hospital - a position he held for 13 years - and an Associate Professor at U of T. John and Dr.
Clare Baker led a cardiac team to Budapest in 1971 and successfully treated patients by open heart surgery. John was credited with introducing the cardiac condition Mitral Valve Prolapse to the cardiologists of Hungary.
In 1981, he was invested as Knight Commander of the Order of St. Sylvester, a Papal award. In 1999, he received the Order of St. Michael from St. Michael's College School.
John was proud of his medical career, but above all was his love for Patricia and his family.
We wish to thank the staff of St.
Bernard's Senior's Residence and also nurse Joy Campbell at St.
Joseph's Health Centre, for her very compassionate care.
