Terrence "Terry" Martin

December 29, 1956 — March 3, 2024

North Hero

Terrence (“Terry”) J. Martin of North Hero passed away unexpectedly at home on March 3, 2024.   He was 67 years old.

Terry was born in Newport, VT on December 29, 1956.  He was the youngest of 5 children born to Wendell and Marion (Shallow) Martin.   Terry attended South Burlington High School, where he also played football, and graduated in 1974.  After graduation Terry moved to South Carolina where he tried his hand in the hospitality business, but the lure of Vermont pulled him back and he eventually found employment in the commercial roofing industry, first as a roofer, then as a foreman and ultimately being a Project Manager for the largest commercial roofing company, A.C. Hathorne, in the state of Vermont.  Terry also enjoyed playing softball and flag football in Burlington area leagues against some of the best teams and players in the state, where winning was important, but secondary to the lifelong friendships he would forge.  In addition to being a NASCAR fan, Terry loved seeing his favorite teams, the Patriots and Red Sox play in Boston.  But his favorite yearly sporting event was attending a Boston Bruins game in the Hospitality Suite with his family and friends, where he once had the opportunity to meet and converse with his favorite NHL player – Bobby Orr.  Terry also had a special love for being on Lake Champlain, whether he was cruising on his own boat or sharing time with friends on theirs.

Terry is survived by his sister, Wendy Martin, his brother Bruce and his wife Jeanne, and his brother Brian and his wife Diane.  Terry also leaves his nephews and niece, Brad and his wife Emily, Eric and his wife Laura, Bryan and his wife Kara, and Erin and her significant other Travis.  He also had a special place in his heart for his twin grand nieces, Abigail and Katherine Martin.  Terry was predeceased by his parents, Wendell and Marion Martin and his brother Jim.

The family would also like to express their gratitude and appreciation to Michaelanne Rowen, whose help with Terry and his medical challenges was invaluable.

Terry’s service will be held at the United Methodist Church in Grand Isle at 11:00AM on Friday, May 10, 2024 (please feel free to attend wearing your favorite NE Patriots, Boston Red Sox or Boston Bruins jersey).  After the grave side service is concluded, A Celebration of Life event will follow at the North Hero House.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the McClure Miller Respite House at or by calling (802) 860-4499 (X3812).
