Pedro "Pokie" Martin Jr.
The Guest Book is expired.
9/5/1988 - 7/13/2014
Pedro Martin, Jr., but to his family and friends was known as Pokie, was taken from us too soon on July 13, 2014 at the young age of 25. Pokie was born in Boise, Idaho on September 5, 1988, to Pedro and Michelle Martin. Pokie was raised in Nampa, Idaho.
Pokie loved spending time with his family and friends, fishing out in Melba at the river, but most of all he loved spending time with his daughter, Annabella and his two nephews Marcos and Christian, whom he loved with all his heart. If you knew Pokie, you knew that he was all about the 49ers and his family. He was always proudly joking around about being a "Mama's Boy".
All Pokie had to do was walk into a room and smile and you knew everything would be alright. Pokie had a way about him that always made you feel safe. He was the one that everyone came to when they needed a friend, because we knew he would be right there and his memory will live through who he loved the most. 831 my Pokie.
Pedro Martin, Jr. is survived by his mother Michelle Martin, his father Pedro "Pete" Martin, his daughter Annabella Martin, his sister Tiffany Porcayo, his brothers James Gonzalez, Anthony Martin and Eric Martin, his grandmothers, Ruth Gonzalez and Consuelo Martin, several other family members and the love of his life Hillary Nickel. He was preceded in death by his Grandfather Pedro Martin IV.
