Luis Angel Martinez Obituary
Luis Angel Martinez 1953 - 2013 Luis Angel Martinez was born on January 5, 1953 to Jose and Petra Martinez in Elsa, Texas. The family including his seven siblings moved to California. They eventually moved to Kern County and met his love, Patricia Snyder. They married in 1976 and started a family together. Luis was a farmer, the greatest profession in his eyes. He worked for Palla Farms in Shafter and loved every minute on the farm. Forty years of hard work was under his belt and would've loved to put another 40 years in if his body allowed it. His family was his heart. He cared deeply for his beautiful mother, Petra. She was his strength and faith. He has many memories with his strong father, Jose and wonderful siblings all 7 to be exact. His four children were his light and provided such great love to them. His 5 grandkids brought the kid out in himself. Always up for a game of catch or teaching them how to work to ground to begin planting his summer garden. Luis was a blessing to everyone he met and will be missed dearly. He was called home to the Great Lord on May 7, 2013. He battled with Parkinson's for a number of years and the Lord said No More. This man needs to walk again. Luis was preceded in death by his father, Jose Martinez. He was survived by his mother Petra of Bakersfield; his son David and Gloria, daughter Kimberly and Horacio and son Stephen; siblings Robert, Juan, Mario and Phillip, Rosa, Yolanda; Dora; grandchildren Tim, Josh, Matthew, Lucas, and Jake; numerous special nieces and nephews. Service for Luis will be at the Shafter Memorial Park on Tuesday May 14, 2013 at 10am Graveside officiated by pastor Jim Glasco of Seventh Standard Pentecostal Church of God. Luis was a great man and will always be remembered. Please send condolences to the family at www.GoldenValleyMemorialCare.com. Petters Funeral Home Shafter www.bakersfield.com/obits
