Amado M. Martinez passed away peacefully on Monday, February 10, 2014. He was 96 years old. He was preceded in death by his wife of 71 years, Agustina Betancourt Martinez and his son, Amado Jr. He is survived by his children, Elida, Pedro, Roman and Anna, seven grandchildren and six great grandchildren.
