His family moved to Grande Prairie, and lived there until 2001 when they moved to Kelowna, British Columbia where he finished Middle and High School before going on to become a welder. Martin moved back to Grande Prairie where he pursued his welding career at Valaards. This was his career passion. He then went on to Truck driving in January 2012.

To the Wolfe family and all of Martin's friends, I only met Martin a few times, but he was very dear to members of my family. His joyful and purposeful way of living was immediately evident, and truly inspiring. -S

Sorry to hear of the Martin's sudden passing. It was a pleasure to get to know Martin as a co-worker at Valard Construction in 09/10. Enjoyed his hard work ethic and great sense of humor. May Martin's memories be the silver lining of this dark cloud!

To all who loved Martin, For days I have been trying to come up with words to express my deepest condolences. I can only imagine that the level of sorrow I feel is magnified one hundred fold in all of you. Right now, with the shock of his passing still great, it’s hard to imagine why he was taken so young; he had so much life left to live, and so I hope that one day his passing will make sense. He was a wonderful man- full of life and joy and laughter. He really did know how to have fun! My husband has worked with a number of young people over the years, and although I shouldn’t have favourites, Martin will always be one of them. He was kind, considerate, and a true man of God, which is a testament to you, Herman and Tina, and the way you raised him. Michelle, I was so excited for you both, and I wish more than anything that we could be celebrating your engagement rather than mourning your loss. In the difficult days ahead I pray you all find the strength to cope, the support to carry-on, and the healing to become whole. Although Martin no longer walks this earth with us, we will carry him in our hearts.

My daughter and I send our deepest sympathy. Your son was a dear friend of my nephew Henry Enns; his grief, and yours is also ours. You will all be in our prayers.
