Ervin Rex Martinez Obituary
Ervin Rex Martinez October 29, 1952 - January 21, 2013 Ervin R. Martinez passed away on January 21, 2013 and has gone to heaven to be with the Lord. He will be sadly missed by his family and friends including his wife of tweenty-seven years, his five children, and five grandchildren. Ervin was preceded in death by his parents Charles and Cecelia, two of his older brothers, and also his twin. Ervin was a Concrete Construction Project Foreman for over thirty years. He worked for Terry Bedford Concrete Construction the last twenty years of his career, before having to retire due to his health. He spent the last eight years of his life battling with various health issues including cancer. Though he eventually lost his eyesight, Ervin won his battle with cancer and was cancer free for more than a year and a half before he passed away. Before health issues, Ervin enjoyed: golfing, hunting, fishing, camping, playing pool, and playing cards. Ervin enjoyed watching his children grow up into adults and he enjoyed playing with his grandchildren. Ervin was a truly good man that was always there for those who needed him; and as a husband, he was not only the perfect dance partner but the perfect partner in life. As a father, he was always there to teach and guide his children. He will be remembered for his smile and for always loving with his whole heart.
