Peter Martin, born May 21, 1943, passed away on Saturday, May 11 at his Guayabitos home from the effects of lung cancer. At the end, Peter was surrounded and supported by his dear friends and longtime partner, Bob Tripp.
Peter was a popular figure in Jaltemba Bay and you could find him every Thursday morning at the Los Amigos de Jaltemba Tianguis kiosk promoting the sale of T-shirts and other merchandise featuring the unique designs of the Guayabitos Women’s Artists Collective. Peter was a reliable and consistent volunteer for Los Amigos for more than 3 years. The proceeds from his Tianguis sales greatly benefited and supported a variety of Los Amigos activities. Peter served on the Los Amigos Management Council where he actively participated and his counsel was well received. We will surely miss his help.
Peter had been a full-time resident of Jaltemba Bay where he had many friends. His home was always open to visitors for late afternoon cocktails and many dinner parties.
Before coming to our area, he had been a longtime resident and businessman in London, Ontario, where he had been a publisher, printer and office manager.
A special memorial will be held in the Fall 2013 in a style commensurate with his British heritage.
I will miss my friend, Peter Martin. And I know he will be missed by many others.
Board Member, Los Amigos de Jaltemba
