Martin "Marty" Alexander Wiles

June 13, 1937 — August 3, 2023

On August 3, 2023 , Martin Wiles, while surrounded by his LOVING WIFE and family went home to be with his Saviour and Lord. While we mourn his loss, we celebrate a man who lived a FULL LIFE of Love, Faith and Friendship. Martin was a loving HUSBAND and TRUE BEST FRIEND to his High School Sweetheart, Caro-Claire (nee Braund) for sixty-nine years- ( married 67 years). He was the much older and wonderful BROTHER to Gary Wiles (Susan). He was a Devoted Father who is cherished by his children; Caro-Alexandra “Tammy” (predeceased). John (Judith), Ken (Carolyn), Ted (Lisa), Andrea Winder (Kevin).
Loving Poppa to thirteen Grands; Ashleigh (Jacob), Melissa (Nathanael),Victoria, Joshua (Brittany), Kathleen, Emily, Graham (Bethany), Vanessa (Andrew), Joanna, Samantha, Nathan, Brennan and Karl (Bethany) and Great-Grandfather to twelve; Ryan, Oliver, Colton, Theodore, Adrian, Tobias, Milo, Simon, Ivan, Emma, Esther and Evelyn. He is also Lovingly Remembered by his Nephew Adam (Jasmine) and Kash, Niece Megan (Shaun) Eva & Joey, and Mary Lou Wiles.

Born in Toronto to Robert Melville Francis Wiles and Rose Margaret (Black), Martin started a thirty-three year career at Bell Canada at age nineteen, retiring at the age of fifty-two. He was a continuous learner and enjoyed many hobbies that included bowling, boating and fishing, building and fixing things, just to name a few.  Most of all, he loved spending time with his family and friends.  He gave back to the communities he lived in by volunteering and offering his time and leadership. He was an active and committed church member, serving as a deacon and helping to teach children various wood crafts, in annual Vacation Bible Schools.  He was valued, supported and respected at the churches he attended, Uxbridge Baptist Church, Vivian Baptist Church and most recently, Cornerstone Baptist Church in Orillia.
Martin will be remembered for his unshakeable faith, his loud voice and laugh, his kindness and interest in people. He was generous, especially to his wife, family and close friends.

We are so thankful for the many people who took care of Dad on his health journey.  He was also thankful for you.
