Blaine Deran Martell, Jr.

December 11, 1987 ~ May 28, 2021 (age 33)


Blaine Deran Martell, Jr. of the Bear Clan and from Bemidji, Minnesota entered the spirit world on May 28, 2021, at the age of 33.  Blaine was born on December 11, 1987, in Duluth, MN to Carmen Roy and Blaine Martell, Sr.

Blaine was a bright, hilarious, kind and loving being: an energy that was infectious within itself.  Anybody who knew Blaine knows how the room felt when you saw him walk in the door.  No matter what the energy or vibe was like beforehand, it always somehow seemed to get better.  Whether it was a sudden, random movie/TV-show reference, a joke, or even song lyrics, you always come out knowing and hearing things you might not have before.  Blaine made life fun for those he shared his time with.  He was creative, full of ideas, passionate about music, enjoyed gaming, was very adventurous, and loved to go hiking.

Family that welcomes Blaine to the spirit world are his grandmother; Joyce Snowdon, grandfathers; Clifford “Porky” Martell, Sr., Peter Helmin and Charles Edward May, great grandmothers; Agnes Roy and Emma Helmin, aunts; Frankie Gonzales, Darla Sue Beaulieu and Sharlene Martell, uncles; Craig Roy, Sr., Quentin Roy and Gordon “Joe” Roy, special friend; Jairus Wiley, and cousins (angel babies); Aubrianna Hesch and Sharlene Digiovanni.

He leaves behind his one-month-old daughter; Azura Rose Martell, his partner; Kylah Lou Piper, mother and stepfather; Carmen Roy and Russell Smith, Sr., father; Blaine Martell, Sr., brother; Brandon Martell, sisters; LaCadie, Shandell and Tasha Martell, stepbrother; Russell Smith, Jr., uncles; Donovan Sather, Sr., Michael Sather, Clifford and Cory Martell, Jamie and Royce Snowdon, Deran Hill, aunts; Roma Lussier maternal grandmother; Diane Roy.  Blaine was the proud uncle to eight nieces and nephews: Aaliyah Lussier, Ahmya Martell, Cordae Lussier, Aries Martell-Roberts, Arrow Martell, Emma Martell, Roman Lussier and Louella Piper many other relatives and way too many friends to list.
