Richard G. Martinez
Richard G. Martinez, a great husband, father, brother, uncle, grandfather, and brother-in-law passed away on September 28, 2020. He was a great friend and an amazing man of God. Even though we will miss him, we can rejoice in knowing that he will be with our Heavenly Father.
He loved watching and cheering on the Texas Longhorns, Dallas Cowboys, and his favorite wrestlers. He also enjoyed his garden which he grew fruits and vegetables, many of which his friends and family enjoyed. One thing in particular was his deliciously flavored hot sauce.
He loved his church and church family. He often made breakfast tacos for everyone, and it made him happy to see the smiles of others enjoying his food.
If you had car trouble, he was your go to mechanic. Part of his prior work history was that he worked at Auto Zone for 14 years. He then went to work for Caldwell County for 9 years and in December 2019 he decided to retire.
He had a gleaming, contagious smile that brought warmth and happiness to everyone. He will be missed, but never forgotten.
