Sammy Martinez

Our beloved brother, Sammy Martinez, age 70, left this earthly home on Saturday, April 6th, 2019 at 9:27 a.m.  Sammy was born in San Antonio, TX, where he lived his whole life.  He was born with cerebral palsy, but his limitations did not stop him from living a long, abundant, and happy life.  He was a blessing to others and will be missed by many.  We know Sammy is in heaven rejoicing with God, in whom he believed so strongly, and he is now walking, running, and not confined to a wheelchair anymore!

Throughout his 70 years, Sammy has been surrounded and supported by so many people including doctors, nurses, therapists, teachers, the staffs of several agencies and daycare facilities, VIA Trans drivers, his church family, extended family, and friends!  He so appreciated all these relationships. To know Sammy, was to love Sammy, and he loved others so much! 

Sammy lived in the loving care of his parents, Alonzo and Olivia Ramirez, and then with his sister Annie Ramirez-Pekarsky and her sons David and Daniel for the last 20 years.  With the help of his other siblings, Rosemary Piña, Alonzo Ramirez, Yolanda Ruiz, and Gracie Peña, Sammy flourished, developed, thrived, and surpassed many expectations.  

All who have known Sammy and are able, are invited to join his family in a Celebration of Life memorial service on April 20th, 2019, 11:00 a.m. at La Trinidad United Methodist Church, 300 San Fernando St at Pecos-La Trinidad.  A reception will follow in the church gym, hosted by the United Methodist Women’s Group, of which Sammy was an honorary member. 

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to La Trinidad United Methodist Church and Casa de Amistad Adult Day Care Center.
