Antonio was born in San Antonio, Texas and was an Air Force Veteran. He lived a long and joyful 82 years. He was the first born child to his parents, Dionicio and Emma Martinez. Antonio touched so many hearts with his amazing personality and a smile as big as the moon. His favorite place to eat was at Chuck E. Cheese for the salad buffet, but always with a fedora hat on. Fedora hats played a major role in his life. Everywhere he went, you would always see him with a fedora on.
He is survived by his 5 children, Miguel Martinez, Antonio Martinez, Martha Martinez, Anna Rosales, and Emma Martinez (all children from Mexicali, Baja California); siblings, Michael, Edward, Steven Carranza, and Maria Noriega; 16 grandkids; 10 great-grandkids; and many more family and friends.
Antonio is preceded in death by his parents, Dionicio and Emma Martinez; and Martinez siblings, Robert, Armando, Joseph, Juan, Ester Martinez, Johnny, Pablo, Joe, Richard, and Esteban Caranza.
