Hans Martini

May 2, 1937 - October 13, 2010
With great sadness, the family announces the death of Hans Martini. Beloved husband of Janet Crawford, father of Calvin (Denise McGrath), Scott (Edward Logie) and Beth Cohen (Randy Edmunds), stepfather of Jennifer (Peter Simpson) and Andrew Campbell. Adored grandfather to Sarah Martini, Abbygail and Emily McGrath, Jamie Edmunds, Aidan Logie, and Dominique Albert Campbell. Fondly remembered by his brother George (Turid), sister Marie, sister-in-law Pam and best friend Jon Oliver. Predeceased by parents George and Maria Martini, and brother, Walter. Born in Hamilton, Hans was a long-time Fredericton resident, devoted father, accomplished musician, and well-loved music teacher and mentor. He studied saxophone at the Berklee School of Music in Boston and joined the Royal Canadian Air Force Band in 1962. In 1970, he relocated to Oromocto's RCR band where he played lead alto saxophone for 21 years.
Hans was a fixture of the New Brunswick jazz scene, regularly playing festivals, teaching, mentoring, and repairing instruments. His larger-than-life personality left an impression on everyone he met. Given Hans' motto, "Live music is best," for those who wish, the family would be grateful for donations to music education programs (Leo Hayes High School, Fredericton High School or the school of your choice).
There is a memorial gathering at McAdam's Funeral Home on Saturday, October 16, 2010 from 1 to 4 p.m. Words of remembrance begin at 2 p.m. www.mcadamsfh.com
