September 10, 1929 – May 5, 2019
It is with great sadness that we announce that Martin Sterle passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, May 5, 2019. He and his wife, Krista, celebrated their 65th Wedding Anniversary this past January 2019. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Krista, daughter Sue (Zdravko), son John, daughter Catherine and daughter Irene (Marjan). He will also be remembered by his grandchildren – David (Barbara), Laurie (Matt), Stefanie (Gabe), Karl (Catherine), Ivan, Peter, Rudi and his great-grandchildren Madison, Everton, Carmen, Brooklyn, Jakob and Julie. In Slovenia, he will be remembered by his siblings Ludovik (Jozica), Cilka and Joze (Marinka) as well as nephews and niece.

His life long dedication to family and church will be missed. He had a zest for life and took pleasure in hard work whether as a skilled craftsman working with wood, a gardener, a mechanic or a chef. He enjoyed music and dancing.

We would like to extend our sincere heartfelt thanks to Dr. Donald Collins-Williams, Edith Agwu, Pauntchitta Lewis, Wade Clarke and Katrina De la Cruz. Their personal dedicated commitment to Martin’s welfare made his final years/days dignified and respectful.
