Martti was Born March 1st, 1951 in Kauhava, Finland and immigrated to Canada with his parents as a young teenager. Martti lived his life as a celebration and found joy in love, in his career as a Contractor and Business owner and in his family. He was quick to smile and always ready with a joke. Endlessly mischievous, a self-proclaimed Peter Pan. He will be fondly remembered and sorely missed.
Our Deepest Thanks to his amazing health team both at home through his final weeks and the staff of Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. In lieu of flowers, donations can made directly to Princess Margaret Cancer Centre
