Dear Martin Family,

My condolences to All of You. Over the last 11 months I have read of so many great memories of Mr. Martin with family, friends, and acquaintances. Although, never meeting Mr. Martin, I have spent much of my youth admiring him, along with the Chicago Blackhawks team. They have all been very impressionable to me and my family. On my 40th birthday I received a blank, white Blackhawk jersey as my primary gift. My family knew of my deep love of hockey and the Blackhawks. It has been nearly 10 years now that I have slowly pondered whose name and number to pride myself with on this jersey. Much thought and research had went into this, for which I had a strict criteria. My final decision is now #7, Pit Martin. I will be wearing it with pride to all the future Blackhawk games that I attend. May All of You cherish Your memories with Mr. Martin. God Bless.

My deepest condolences to the Martin family. I started liking hockey in 1962 when my hometown Hamilton Red Wings led by Pit won the Memorial Cup. Pit was my favorite player throughout his entire career in the juniors and the pros. One of my dreams was to someday meet Pit and express how much joy he gave me for so many years which unfortunately now will never happen. I was devastated when I heard about his accident. The memories that a child has stays with them vividly for their entire life and you will always be remembered Pit. God Bless you in heaven and your family.

To the Martin Family,

My deepest sympathy, our family had season tickets to the Hawk's in the 60's and 70's and I so much loved watching Pit lead a charge down ice.
I'm sure he really would have loved being at the Winter Classic on New Years Day at Wrigley Field or watching on tv.

Dear Pat,
I sincerely send my condolences to you and your daughters. I read about Pit's death on line recently. You may or may not remember me, but Geri Matyasek and I use to babysit for you and Pit when you lived in Villa Park, Illinois. Geri and I actually flew up with Pit in his plane to your Windsor house one summer back in 1973. I know your girls are all grown up and I am sure still as gorgeous as they were as tots. You are all in my prayers. Dawn (

Dearest Pitt
I have often thought of you and Denise and wondered how your new life was back home in Noranda. I also remember your beautiful daughter's wedding.Thank you for sharing those special times with me and my friend at the time.
I will always remember you as a kind person who liked his cigar and red wine. You will be missed by many at the Riversportsmen Club.
May God Bless you Pitt.

An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
May the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

Pitt May the Angels watch over you!

So sorry to hear this news. My dad and I went to many games at the old Stadium in the 70's and Pit Martin was my favorite hawk.
I had my Mom sew a #7 on my plain blackhawks jersey, and I wore it proudly. God bless his family. We will never forget him.

As a kid growing up in the era that Pit played with the Blackhawks, I truly loved and embraced that team. I will always remember Pit and the majority of his teamates. Altough the team never won the Stanley Cup, I will always remember them as one of the greatest sports team I had the honor of watching and rooting for. My thoughts & prayers go out to the entire Martin family. Thanks for all the great memories Pit, I am sure you will be sorely missed.

To the Pit Martin family:
My best friend Gail Genovese Smith & myself would like to extend our deepest condolences to you on the loss of Pit. Pat, we had many a drink together in between periods and I always found you guys along with Sue Hull and Cindy Magnuson to be very down to earth, fun people to be around not to mention highly accessible to the fans. Pit was a great guy, fantastic hockey player and he will be missed by all Blackhawk fans everywhere not to mention his family & friends. We don't go to the games anymore as my mom is 92 now and suffered a stroke in January, but she always loved watching him play. If she could, she would extend her sympathies too. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this very sad time.

My sincere condoleances to the Martin Family. My brother Jean Paul and I grew up in our early years with Hubert and his brother Yvon, and have wonderfull memories of those times,

Pit Martin was one of the great Blackhawk skating centers of the 70's. I found his style of play exciting and it seem to make the rest of his teammates skate with more purpose.
My Condolences to the family of Pit Martin.
