It is with great sadness that we mark the passing on July 27, 2017 of Thomas J. (Tom) Martin, Sr. after a long battle with cancer.
Tom had been a Ouimet Director since 1999. He had been involved with the Ouimet Fund since 1993 when he offered to have his company, Cramer, make/contribute a caddie instructional video. Since 1997, Cramer has also been the Ouimet Fund’s partner in producing our Annual Banquet videos and overall presentation. He and Cramer had also helped in many other special video projects, upgrading of our website and much more over the years.
He was a very fine player, and won the inaugural Eddie Lowery Seniors Division of the Francis Ouimet Memorial Tournament in 1999. In 2007 he and fellow Ouimet Director Jim Logue chaired the Ouimet Fund’s “Spirit of Golf” event that honored and created an endowed scholarship in the name of Boston College Hockey Coach Jerry York. Tom and his wife, June, created the Martin Family Scholarship in 2014. He was honored with The Fund’s Richard F. Connolly Distinguished Service Award for his numerous and longstanding contributions in 2007. His son, Thomas (T.J.) Martin, Jr. is also a Ouimet Director.
“Tom was a tremendous friend to the Ouimet Fund. He loved the game of golf, and gave back in so many ways – to Ouimet, other charities and Boston College, where he was such a legendary hockey player. He brought his great business leadership as our Marketing Chair for several years and always had so much energy and enthusiasm. He will be greatly missed, but always remembered. Our deepest sympathies go out to June, the entire Martin family, and the Cramer family,” said Ouimet Executive Director Bob Donovan.
Mr. Martin’s Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:30am at Saint Ignatius Church at 28 Commonwealth Avenue, Chestnut Hill, MA on Tuesday August 1, 2017. Visitation will be from 3:00-7:00pm at Saint Gerard Majella Church at 1860 Washington Street Canton, MA on Monday July 31, 2017. Interment Milton Cemetery.
