Martin Timothy Harper, 50, passed away on Sunday, Dec. 15, 2013, at his home in Holbrook. 
No public services are scheduled at this time.
He was born on Aug. 22, 1963, in Luton, Bedfordshire, United Kingdom. 

Martin was a very caring person who made friends very easily through acts of kindness and helpfulness. To some he seemed gruff, but he was not; he was a very funny person who you never forgot after you met him. He was a fierce friend to all he came in contact with. Martin was working on a cookbook when he passed away. His love for cats was only exceeded by his love for cooking. 

Survivors include his wife, Hallie; three brothers, John, Stephen and Richard; four sisters, Lia, Katherine, Shellagh and Jane; and many nieces and nephews, and great-nieces and nephews.
The family requests donations be made in his name to HALO, a no kill shelter in Phoenix, or the Humane Society for dogs and cats.
Owens Livingston Mortuary of Holbrook was in charge of the arrangements.Martin Harper
