Vincent Martinez was born on January 19, 1984. He was tragically taken on April 4, 2013 in a car accident. He was a son, a brother, a cousin, a nephew, and a friend. He is survived by his parents, Juan and Rachel Martinez, along with his sister and brother, Sonia and David Martinez and his niece Bella Star. He will forever be remembered by those who knew and loved him. He has countless relatives and friends who know his smile and laugh because it was so special and unique.
Vince spent his days working as an electrician and working many extra jobs. He kept busy because he never wanted to in one place too long. He was what we call a "busy-body". Vince had a passion for sky-diving and was recently certified to jump solo. He was very proud of his accomplishment and shared it with everyone he knew. Vince had an ability to make every problem seem so minimal; he saw the good in everything that came his way. He was a strong believer in second-chances and being happy no matter what life handed him. He was the light in all our dark days. He was the best friend you could have asked for. He would always be there to lend an ear, a hand, or his heart. He was a gift to his family and to this world. And although he is gone, he will live on in the hearts of those who held him close.
Vince will be missed so greatly. His memories will be cherished forever.
Visitation will be held on April 9th at Ave Maria Memorial Chapel, 609 Main St., Watsonville from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Memorial Services will be April 10th at Green Valley Christian Center, 376 S. Green Valley Rd., Watsonville beginning at 11:00 AM
