A Tribute to William Martin, 1969-2014
William Martin, an exemplary leader, co-worker and friend, passed away after bravely fighting a long battle with cancer. Will was Synergy WorldWide’s first-ever Presidential in Europe, and was instrumental in making Synergy Europe the flourishing market it is today.
During his 10 years with Synergy WorldWide, Will blessed countless lives with his work ethic, humor and remarkable kindness. His life was the epitome of Synergy’s mission to Leave a Legacy. He truly left a legacy to his loved ones and the entire Synergy family, a legacy that will be remembered and replicated for decades to come.
“There is nobody in Synergy that left a more incredible example of what it means to Leave a Legacy,” said Synergy founder Dan Higginson, a close friend to Will. “You smiled, you brightened everybody’s day. You taught people how to believe and believe in themselves. You taught people how to overcome challenges … you’re an incredible individual that taught people how to live like they were dying.”
Will is highly regarded by Synergy executives, Synergy leaders and distributors all over the world as not only a friend, but a mentor. He understood the importance of goals and dreams, and taught everyone around him to aim for their highest ambitions.
“Will exemplified Leave a Legacy through the integrity, the love, the passion and the courage that it takes to live life to its fullest,” said Dianne Leavitt, Double Presidential. “There is no question I am better because Will has shown me how to be. I send all my love and deepest thanks to Will for showing me and the entire Synergy family how to truly live.”
On behalf of the entire Synergy family, it was an honor and a privilege to know William Martin, and he will be greatly missed by all. We extend our love to his family, and know that because he truly did Leave a Legacy for thousands to follow, he will always be with us in spirit.
“I believe firmly that we are going to create the largest and the biggest network marketing company on this planet. We have all the ingredients. We have the products, we have the corporate staff behind us, and most of all, we have the leadership in the field, and that’s you guys. We’re going to take this business to the top; it’s going to rock. We’re going to have the ride of our lives. It’s going to go with or without us. Now, let’s go make sure it’s with us.” – William Martin
