Eduardo "Eddie" Martinez

June 13, 2022


Eduardo Martinez "Eddie", 73, was Heavenly embraced by our Lord and Savior on Monday, June 13th, 2022. He was born on October 3, 1948 in  Laredo, Texas.

Eddie was very loved and remembered as the best son, husband, father, grandfather, and brother you could possibly have.  He was plain and simple, yet very good looking and an honest-working man. He was known as “fast Eddie” because he was always willing to go the extra mile for everyone. Eddie had many qualities about himself, but what everyone always remembers is his humility and generosity; he had a heart made of gold.   

He is survived by his sons, Jeremy E. Martinez, Jason E. Martinez (Monica); sister, Alice M. Rios (Manuel); brothers, Javier Martinez (Alicia), Marcos Martinez (JoAnn); granddaughters, Angelica and Bernice Martinez; grandson, Eric Martinez; great granddaughter and nieces and nephews.
