My heartfelt condolences to the Martinez family. I pray that the Lord will grant them comfort and understanding during this difficult time. Coach Martinez spoke with his heart. He structured me against all odds in the wrong side of society which helped me to reflect on my life and helped me to develop a sharp point of reference to follow during my early stages of adolescence. His philosophy of life was expressed in so many ways! I was very lucky to be able to understand his messages and I sure took advantage of his great wisdom.
I thank him for allowing me to hear his school teachings, basketball coaching and his fierce competitive instinct.

May Coach Martinez rest in heavenly peace.
(I hope that he gets to read this message, and say hi for me to some of his basketball players “Jorge Oria, Lorenzo Tabarez and Carlos Orona”.)

I will miss coach Martinez very much. Coach Martinez I never told your this, but, you inspired me to do better in life. You once said to me; "Zurdo, (as he used to call me) you can be a little good player". When he told me that, I felt like I could fly. I still remember when I stopped going for basketball practice. He truly was our second father. always looking after us. Coach Martinez i will see you some day. bye. Javier De lara. AKA Zurdo.
