Wayne R. Martin
Date of Passing:
Martin, Wayne Robert, a life-long resident of Barrington, RI, passed away unexpectedly on August 10, 2021. He was the beloved husband to Caron (Murgo) for 44 years. Born in Providence, RI, he was the son of Yolande (Moreau) Martin and the late Robert Martin.
He was a devoted father to his son Christopher (Beth-Ann) and beloved grandfather to Hazel Quinn (HQ), the apple of his eye.
Wayne was a highly accomplished carpenter whose reputation for expert craftsmanship was widely known and appreciated. He worked for his father and uncle for many years before he took over the family business, Martin Brother’s Construction Company.
Wayne’s many passions included woodworking, fast cars, relaxing at his home in Bridgton, Maine, enjoying a cigar and a “good” stout or porter, fishing on Moose Pond and spending time with his family and friends, but especially being Grampy to HQ. Wayne will be remembered fondly, among other things, for his quick wit, booming voice and wicked sense of humor. All can agree who knew him that Heaven just got a little louder.
Wayne, the oldest of five brothers leaves behind Richard (Kathy) Paul (Doreen), Kevin (Maga), Craig (Judy) and many nieces and nephews
Flowers are respectfully declined. Contributions in Wayne’s name to a favorite charity would be deeply appreciated.
