Martin (Torbin) Dohm-Smidt

May 30, 1935 – August 31, 2022

In loving memory ~
Martin (Torbin) Dohm-Smidt slipped peacefully away August 31, 2022 with his Step son Lars at his side.
Born to Helene and Oscar Smidt May 30, 1935, in Nr. Nebel, Denmark, he is survived by his three children and 7 grandchildren, Melissa, husband Gary (Sean, Tyler & Faith), Mark (Sydney & Justin), and Ann (Caitlyn & Victoria). After living for over 40 years in Canada, he returned to his home country of Denmark and settled in Copenhagen for the last 21 years of his life, where he was able to reconnect with his brothers Trolls and Henning and their families.
Martin was a man of character, integrity, and service. He had an interesting life from working on the Royal Yacht for Lord Mount Batton, to the UN as a translator, as well as a CBC executive, to being a garbage man while attending the Vancouver School of Theology, and finally as an Anglican Minister. He will be remembered for his infectious laugh, sense of humour and the ability to help others see the best in themselves.
A celebration of his life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke foundation.
