Canon Dr. (Christopher) Martin Hendy died September 30, 2017 at the age of 79, after recurrent bouts of pneumonia. Martin came to the U of O from the UK with his wife and two small boys in 1968 and then to BC in 1972. His career took him to Simon Fraser University, BCIT and the University of Victoria. He retired in 2001. Martin was a strong advocate of Outward Bound and Co-op Education. He was active in the Anglican Church at both the Parish and Diocesan level.

Rest in Peace Martin!

    I am sorry to come across this news. Martin was an Outward Bound instructor of mine in 1969 (might have been 1970) when I was 16. It was a life altering course without a doubt. I have since been an Outward Bound instructor myself, having worked over 20 multi-week courses in OB and similar programs. I wish I had made the effort to convey to him the influence he had on my life. To the family I offer my condolences, I am very sorry for the loss this must be

    Dear Mary, James, Richard and families.

    I am sorry to hear of Martin’s passing. I will always remember him as a wonderful story teller with a good sense of humour. Martin was kind to my children and a good grandfather to Hugo and Jeffe. My thoughts are with you all at this sad time.

    Sincerely Barbara
