Mike Martinez

Mike Martinez, born October 26, 1951 in Loma Linda, CA, returned in joy to his Father in Heaven on Saturday, August 4, 2018 at the age of 67.

In Susanville, Mike found a fully realized life of home, friends, work, and hobbies. He was devoted to his wife Patricia of 34 years, and to all those around him. Mike was as eager to learn alongside the novices in his field as he was to teach the most skilled experts in his work as a safety officer for the National Forest Service and various military installations from Camp Pendleton in San Diego, to Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba.

His generosity and admiration of service defined him. He was known for his dry humor, his love for the craft and consumption of good food, and his enthusiasm to host or attend a good garage sale. With Pat he exercised his passion to rescue and care for animals in need.

Mike has been greeted in Heaven by his two newborn sons, who preceded him in death, as well as by his brother, Donald; his sister, Sandra; his parents, Mike and Mary; and his beloved grandparents, Antonio and Lucinda.

He is survived by his wife, Patricia; his daughter, Deborah and son-in-law, Gabriel; his son; Tim and daughter-in-law, Erica; his grandchildren Anthony, Alyssa and Adam; his sister, Dolores; his nieces, Virginia and MaryJane; his nephew, Valentine; and by a steadfast family of friends who will all miss him dearly.

Mike will be cremated, and his ashes will be spread over Monterey Bay in California. The family will determine a future time and location to hold a gathering in honor of his memory.

 

Why Pre-plan?

Thinking about your own funeral leaves most people feeling a little uneasy, but more adults are finding that pre-planning a funeral offers great emotional and even financial security for them and their families. With pre-planning, families find comfort in knowing that the funeral reflects what their loved one wanted. It also gives them peace of mind to not have to make important decisions at a stressful time. Click here to visit Walton’s Funeral Home
