Obituary for Enrique "Henry" Carmelo Martinez

Enrique “Henry” Carmelo Martinez was born on April 27, 1921 in Glendale, Arizona to Ramon and Victoria Martinez. He was the 4th born of 13 children. He came to California and married his wife of 76 years, Esther Evangelista, in December of 1941. After working various jobs, Henry found his passion for painting cars for Van Wyk Pontiac, later known as Stowasser GMC, for 25 years. Even after retirement, you would find Henry working around the house, mowing his lawn, washing his cars, caring for his grandchildren, attending church, as well as many other things. He was never one to stay still and just rest.

On July 14, 2018, the Lord called Henry to heaven to be among his angels. He is survived by his wife, his 6 loving children: Richard Martinez, Helen Roderguiez, Barbara DeSepio, Arthur Martinez (deceased), Teresa Carlon, and Robert Martinez, as well as numerous grand/great-grand/great-great-grand children. He will always be remembered as the man who loved his sweets as much as he loved his corny jokes.

There will be a graveside service held at the Santa Maria Cemetery at 2:30 p.m. Friday, July 20, 2018, followed by a celebration of life.
