Obituary for Isidro Matias Puentes

April 4,1944- January 19,2019

Isidro Matias Puentes, better known as Marty, 74, was lifted to the heavens to be with the Lord, January 19, 2019. Marty was born in McNary, AZ on April 4, 1944. Soon after his birth, his family moved to Oceano where he lived the majority of his childhood.
Marty joined the Army shortly after graduating high school and while in the Army, he met his wife of 44 years, Mary Peralez in 1966. They married 2 weeks after meeting each other and had three children together.
They lived most of their lives out at the ranch of Rosemary Farms in Santa Maria, CA where Marty worked as a Maintenance Supervisor for the ranch for over 30 years before retiring. In his spare time, he was also Marian Hancock’s driver before she passed away. Marty will be remembered for his hard work, smelling like grass, dust and sweat when he would come home after a long day of work. He will be remembered by throwing the annual neighborhood block parties with a giant bbq for all to come and the party ending at his home with Tex Mex music, his Black Velvet and Coke, and all the neighbors having a great time with laughter and jokes. Marty will be remembered by many by having a warm heart under his tough exterior with a glass of brandy in his hand and a cigar in his mouth. Many will greatly miss his joy of laughter and telling his hilarious jokes to all who would listen. He truly had the greatest sense of humor.
Marty is preceded in death by his parents Matias Puentes and Maria Sara Sanchez, and his beautiful wife of 44 years Mary Puentes.
Marty is survived by his sister Ramona Ramirez (Raul Ramirez- Brother in Law) of Arroyo Grande, CA. His three children, Isidro Matias Puentes Jr, known as Marty Jr or Gordo, Fernando Puentes ( Elena Arroyo -Puentes – Daughter in law) and his daughter Alissa Puentes, known as Nene, all of Santa Maria. He is also survived by his grandchildren Isidro Matias Puentes III , known as Tito , Jacob Puentes ( Avila) , Danyal Puentes, Michael Arroyo and Sophie Arroyo, all of Santa Maria. He is also survived by his wife’s sister who he considered his sister all his life, Lupe Guerrero (Ray Guerrero) of Levelland, TX. He is also survived by many great- grandchildren.
A private family viewing for his close loved ones took place on January 24, 2019 at Dudley-Hoffman Mortuary. A celebration of life for family and friends of the Puentes Family is taking place February 2, 2019 at 1:00 pm at the Knights of Columbus in Santa Maria. Ramona Ramirez, his sister, is also having a celebration of life at her residence on February 9, 2019 at 1:00 pm for her family and friends who he touched with his presence.
Thank you for the expression of love and sympathy for our family during this difficult time and God Bless you all. – Alissa Puentes, on behalf of the Puentes Family.
