Christopher Mark Martin Obituary
Christopher Mark Martin

Christopher Mark Martin sadly passed away from heart complications on July 23, 2012, at the age of 48. He was born July 8, 1964 in New Zealand, the youngest child of Monica and the late John Martin. Chris was a resident of Palos Verdes Estates, California. He is survived by his wife, Sharon Martin; and daughters, Julia, Emily, Jessica, and Rosemary; mother, Monica Martinovich; brothers, Antony and Paul Martin; and sister, Philippa Clarke; and many treasured nieces and nephews. After spending his formative years in New Zealand, Chris moved to Los Angeles and joined the family business, Gourmet Trading, which had been founded by his father, the late John Martin and older brother Paul Martin. Gourmet Trading is an International Trading Company for produce throughout Mexico, Peru, New, Zealand, Washington, California, the list goes on. It was at this time he met his wife-to-be Sharon Cowles, he swept her off her feet and showed her the world. They had a beautiful Marriage and went on to have four amazing daughters, Julia 17, Emily 15, Jessica 13 and Rosemary 8. Chris loved living in Valmonte, and you could find him strolling the many trails with his daughters and dogs in tow. Chris was the most wonderful husband and father; a true family man. His smile could light up a room. Chris will be remembered fondly by all who knew him. His random acts of kindness, generous spirit, and humble nature will give us all something to aspire to. He will be sadly missed. Funeral services will be held on July 28, 2012, at 9:30 a.m. at Rolling Hills Covenant Church, 2222 Palos Verdes Dr. North, Rolling Hills Estates, CA 90274.
