Shaun Gerald Martel


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing, of our beloved Shaun.

Shaun will be lovingly remembered by his mother, Irma Belton, his brother, Robert Martel, his son Justin Martel, his step son Don Stevens, the mother of his sons Erin Stevens; and many extended family members and friends.

Shaun made a beautiful life and home in Edmonton, Alberta. Shaun was a very talented hard worker. He achieved his journeyman certifications in both welding and heavy duty mechanics and he worked in the trades for many years with his last employment with Trimac.

Shaun will always be remembered for his big beautiful smile, his infectious laughter,
humour, smarts and wit, his passion for work, restoration projects, boating,
snowmobiling, biking, love for his dogs and animals, music, dancing, concerts and singing but most of all he will be remembered for his compassion and his big loving heart for his family and friends. He will be missed dearly never forgotten and will remain forever in our hearts.

Rest in Peace “OUR BIG DADDY”

Family Tree

A limb has fallen
from the the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says,
“Grieve not for me.”

Remember the best times,
the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.

Continue my heritage,
I’m counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely
the sun will shine through.

My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.

Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don’t worry about falls.

I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes
We’re together again.

My heart and thoughts of love go out to Irma , Robert and all of Shaun’s family. I’ve known Irma and her boys approx 35 years, of which they have always been in my heart and considered as some of the best friends I’ve ever known. Kind, humble, fun loving, generous and salt of the earth kind of people. Shaun was always fun to be around. Tho I didn’t see him often, I always remembered how he treated me like family. His handsome face, that beautiful smile, his wit and boisterous laugh! He was always welcoming and made me feel at home with his big squishy bear hugs. He amazed me with his talents and knowledge and willingness to tackle projects, especially for his mom. This made me proud. He will be truly missed, thought of with fondness and I can only hope for the family, that the extreme pain and heartache of loosing him, will soften soon and that their precious memories of life shared with him, will carry them thru the years to come. There will always be sadness and tears, but it won’t hurt as much as it does today. All will grieve in their own way, their own time. Irma, never forget I’m here for you. As I can’t come to Shaun’s celebration of life, I will be thinking about you all day, teary eyed too as I know it will be a trying time for you. Kelly, Bug and I will light a candle for Shaun. Xo
