Martin’s LOVE for others lit up the world. Martin was a straight A student and played football for Channel Island High School. Martin was a die hard Rams fan and enjoyed going to the football games. He was awarded The Crucial Team Captain on October 3, 2021 at the Rams game. Martin enjoyed doing mechanic work and working on cars. He loved going to the casino and watching movies at home all the time. Martin was a strong believer in Jesus Christ and knew the Bible back to back. He believed that “the word of God is living and powerful” (Hebrews 4:12). Martin was a beautiful soul and always was there to help anyone in need from when he was a child to his last days. Even though he had his challenges from the cancer he helped his blind father-law and grew a strong bond with him. He LOVED everyone and taught us so many unique qualities. He was a unique and intelligent soul. He will be greatly missed by all who LOVED him.
