December 3rd, 1991 - November 4th, 2018
Nickolaus Joshua Martinez entered this world on December 3, 1991, a gift to all who knew him. He went home to be with his Heavenly Father on November 4, 2018. Nick was a loving son, brother, grandson, nephew, uncle, godfather and friend. Known for his big hugs and warm smiles, he made everything better just being near him. He was the eternal protector being the stereotypical big brother, but also the grandson who cared for his grandparents. Considered by all our family as the most genuine and generous person, he literally gave his life for the ones his loved. Family always came first.
Nick is survived by his twin sister Nickole Martinez, parents Edith Monroy and Felipe Martinez, grandparents Ignacio and Maria Monroy, grandmother Gloria Lopez, siblings Monica Martinez (Eric Stewart), Felipe J. Martinez, Ignacio D. Monroy, Nathaniel Monroy, and Noah Martinez; Aunts, uncles and cousins Carmen Parises (Greg-spouse, and Elora), Jose Angel Martinez (Yessenia, Dalia, Joseph, Felix, Diego, and Chino), Dalia Martinez (Raul-spouse, Dalia, Valentino, Emma, and Santiago), Ben and Sophia Kobrin (Jacob and June). He will be missed most by his god children Elias Vincent Stewart and Ezra Nickolaus Stewart, Nick would have loved watching them grow up.
Nick worked for Mountain Enterprise Corporation, more than an employee, he quickly became part of the company family. Nick loved his job, which allowed him to spend his days where he loved being, amongst the trees and mountains, outdoors in the fresh California air. He worked diligently to become part of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 1245. When Nick was not working, he was pushing his god children in a swing, running his beloved dogs Pancho and Luca, hiking mountains with his siblings, jumping off rocks in to mountain springs, sky diving, running in obstacle course type races and doing anything that meant challenging himself, spending time with family and enjoying the outdoors.
The family wishes to thank all of those who have helped them during this difficult time. Contributions can be made directly to his grandmother Maria Monroy or aunt Sophia Kobrin. A viewing and memorial service will be held on Thursday afternoon/evening November 8, 2018 at Vineyard Chapel in Cherokee Memorial Park. Official times will be posted to www.cherokeememorial.com
