A life such as his cannot be summed up in a few words.

Hello Paul, a few years ago I gamed with your brother quite often. We would drop a note once in awhile. He didn't let on that he was not doing so well. I didn't know of his passing till a fellow gamer from Wales contacted me with the sad news. Deepest condolences to all from across the pond. Eric Svalland aka Kurgan

Eric - Martin's death from a severe heart attack was sudden and unexpected and shocked us all. I suspect the condition was masked by the constant discomfort from his disability. He was a community worthy in Forest Town and he will be missed by very many people. He also had an On-Line presence and knew a lot of gamers and RAF friends, many of whome are unknown to us. I shall put his obituary on the Pursaglove One-Name Study site when I have the copy.
