Edward Martin passed away peacefully on August 28 at age 88. Although a native San Franciscan, he raised his family in Los Altos for 53 years.
Ed never met a stranger and could always carry a conversation with anyone. Because of this, he maintained many long friendships with coworkers at Connell Brothers and friends on Caltrain. His commute to work was more of a social hour rather than the daily grind to the office.
Ed taught his family the important skills that we hope our children will inherit from us. He was warm, caring, and a good listener. He was a true gentleman who always believed in opening the door for a woman and a firm handshake for a man.
Ed is survived by his wife, daughter, son, daughter-in-law, brother, and nephew. We can only imagine what life will be like without him.
