Herbert Elevenio Martinez

MONTE VISTA —Herbert Elevenio Martinez, 77, died July 6, 2019 at his home in Monte Vista.

Herbert was known for constantly telling jokes to everyone.  He was a friend to all that met him.  He had many jobs after he left the irrigation business. One of his great passions was driving his semi-trailer across the states. 

He is survived by his son, Herbert Martinez Jr, his daughters, Olivia and her husband Leroy Romero, Annette and her husband Doug Campbell and Violet Martinez.  He was a loving grandpa to six grandchildren Leah Marie, Angela, Kyle, Olivia Rose, Leon and Delilah and one great-granddaughter Ayla.

He was the second eldest of his siblings, Art Martinez, Phyllis Griffis, Orlando (Joann) Martinez, Harry (Rachel) Martinez, Kenneth (Eva) Martinez, and Mae (Max) Salazar.  He is preceded in death by his wife, Juanita, daughter Theresa, parents Dilio and Cidelia, brothers Harry and Art Martinez and great-grandson Andrew Levi. 

Cremation was chosen, and a Memorial Service will be held 11 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 3, at the Rogers Family Mortuary in Monte Vista.  Family and friends will gather after the memorial at The Valley Church of the Nazarene to celebrate his life.
