Not sure what to say?

Martin in Henley in 2010

A talented man, a great artist, a kind grandfather and caring man, Martin will be fondly remembered by all who knew him. He worked hard and succeeded in his career despite his deafness and has left behind a legacy of artistic creativity, particularly through his paintings and the Ladybird books which he illustrated.
He was my Father in Law for over thirty years.
Rest in peace dear Martin.
Love from Gill Aitchison
