Martin Teglasi passed away peacefully at home on January 23, 2019 at the age of 81. Born in Mosorin, Serbia, he immigrated to Canada in 1961 and became a proud Canadian citizen in 1967. He worked for Westinghouse as an industrial electrician for many years. Martin was passionate about competitive rifle shooting and hunting. He was an active member of the B.C. Rifle Association for more than 40 years. He enjoyed many road trips with his family in his motorhome and was happiest surrounded by the outdoors and wildlife. Protecting the environment was close to his heart and he belonged to the BC Wildlife Federation for many years. He had a talent for languages and always enjoyed chatting in any of the five that he spoke.
Martin will be terribly missed and forever remembered by his loving wife Pauline of 52 years, his children Mirko (Catherine) and Anica (Nikola), his grandchildren Jelena and Marko and relatives and friends in Canada, Serbia and Australia.
