It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Martin Hedger of Kincardine, after a short stay in the Grey Bruce Health Services – Owen Sound Hospital on Monday the 19th of October at the young age of 51.

Martin leaves behind his beloved mother, Audrey Hedger of Kincardine, his father John David Hedger of England and his brothers Gary Hedger of London, Ontario and Cory Hedger of Kincardine.

Loving uncle of Dominic Hedger of Durham and Kyleen and Xander Hedger of Wingham.

He will also be dearly missed by Auntie Maureen and his many, many friends.

Born in England on the 16th of July in 1969, Martin moved to Canada with his family when he was 8 years old. He attended Durham College where he received a certificate in the General Arts and Science program and majored in Social Studies. Martin spent most of his working career as a Construction Labourer, before turning one of his many hobbies of disc jockeying into a job and working at Gilley’s Bar & Grill from 1991-1992. At a young age he enjoyed woodworking, weight-lifting and tennis, in the summers of 1989 and 1990 he worked as a Tournament Director for the Kincardine Tennis Club.

Martin was a humble and contemplative individual. He enjoyed reading and writing daily. His passions consisted of studying interior design of modern homes and listening to music. Feeling truly blessed to have lived in the great community of Kincardine, he enjoyed spending Mondays with friends attending Drop-in at the Bridge. The feeling was mutual, in a Facebook post they wrote: “Martin leaves us with many fond memories, including his published book of wisdom quotes. In the manuscript for his second book, he wrote, ‘To mature is an endless journey of seeing life with new eyes.’ As anyone who spent time with Martin knows, his company has taught us to see life through a new lens that seeks the good, the humour, and the opportunities around us. Martin, we will miss you dearly.”

A celebration of life will take place at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Kincardine Hospital Foundation, Diabetes Canada, Canadian Mental Health Association or Drop in at the Bridge (cheques payable to 'BIC Church') would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy and can be made by contacting the funeral home (519-396-2701).

Dear Audrey and family and Auntie Maureen ... my deep, deep condolences. I did not know Martin well, but knew him well enough to see the spirit that shone from his eyes, his heart and his clever mind. He had sight and insight that few achieve. I love the quote included that sums up his contemplative nature "To mature is an endless journey of seeing life with new eyes." Blessings to all who loved and were touched by his presence. xo

I remember playing tennis with Martin and my father many years ago on the Kincardine tennis courts. He always stopped to chat when I was home visiting. He was very passionate and genuinely cared about those around him. My condolences to the family.

Martin: We hadn't connected in awhile but I always knew what you were up to and how proud you were when your first book got published and how you felt that it wasn't going to happen. You always had a kind heart and soul even though you liked to tease me I knew that the gentle giant in you was joking. You always made people around you welcome, a few years ago you bump into my family from Scotland that came to Kincardine for visit, and they came back saying we just bump into this really nice guy who couldn't say nicer things about you! I knew it was you that they had met. You made them feel welcomed which was so you. Hearing about your passing actually hit me harder then I thought I'm going to miss you but I know that heaven has one amazing angel looking down on us. Rest in peace my friend

Martin had a kind, faithful and gentle soul. He was always interested in self-improvement and enjoyed watching football and tennis. At one time he was the best tennis player in Kincardine. His book of quotes is a testament to his contemplative nature, looking to advise others and himself on living well and happily. We will always remember Martin as a special friend.
Love, Marion and Howard Brown.

Martin would frequently visit my store, Brushwood. He had an interest in interior design and home decor. Martin aIso loved to write and think about life and inspirational quotes. I got to know Martin as a friendly, gentle person. I would often see him about town and had the occasional coffee with him. He will be missed.
I hope you are at peace Martin.
