In memory of
Martin Parkes

Martin was a devoted husband and father who took great pleasure in helping anyone he could in anyway they needed. He was married for 30 very happy years to Patricia and had two sons Liam and Barnaby who is was very proud of.

Martin passed away at the age of 62, after a very full life. He had worked in the motor industry for most of times, both cars and trucks, ending his career as a business adviser.
His hobbies included dogs and cars, managing to fulfill some of his bucket list by owning an Aston Martin and going on some amazing holidays in it with Patricia.
However, he loved nothing more that walking on Bamburgh beach with his dogs and Patricia, no matter what the weather

My belated condolences to Patricia and the family. Always one for a lively debate, I still remember meeting Martin within my first week at Cat Logistics back in 1998. May he rest in peace
