Obituary

On Sunday, December 27, 2020, we endured the great loss of a pillar to our family, but gained the best guardian angel. Eleazar O. Martinez Sr. was many things as you all may know; among those a loving husband & father, an amazing grandfather & great-grandfather, a caring friend to all and quite the handyman. He was born on September 23, 1941 in San Martin, Michoacán, Mexico to Ventura and Maria Jesus Martinez. It was there where he lived out most of his youthful years. He came to Porterville in 1975. This is where he chose to call home and continue to grow his family. He always led by example and accomplished many things. He became a U.S. Citizen and later obtained his diploma in 1984. He was a lab technician for CCPI in Lindsay for over 20 years. He had a huge heart and loved helping others, for he would always stop what he was doing to attend to not only his family, but friends as well. He loved baseball especially when it came to watching his kids and grandkids and never missed a Dodger game. The thing he cherished most was his family because to him family meant everything. He is survived by his loving wife of 57 years Maria Aurora Martinez, children Jose (Enedina) Martinez, Martha (Jesus) Medel, Juan Martinez, Veronica Martinez, Sandra (Ramiro) Hernandez, Abraham (Lidia) Martinez, Jimmy (Flor) Martinez, Himelda Martinez, Eleazar “Chalo” (Ofie) Martinez Jr., Gilberto Martinez, 20 grandchildren & 2 great-grandchildren. Being united as a family was something he treasured. He was a man of many words and through his faith knew just the right words to say. So to continue in his path we leave you with this...

”He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” God heals our broken hearts, even when we lose someone we love. Unfortunately, there is no timetable for grief but you can cling to the promise that God heals broken hearts. -Psalm 147:3
