Eugenio "Gene" Martinez Sr

26 January, 193828 March, 2021

Eugenio (Gene) Martinez, Sr. peacefully entered the Lord's kingdom on March 28 at the age of 83.

He is preceded in death by his wife of 47 years, Yolanda, and is survived by his children, Gene, Jr. (Elisa), Liza (Juve), Perla (Vicente); his only grandson, Juvencio Saldana III, and a sister, Marcelina Martinez.

Gene graduated from Harlingen High School in 1955 and proudly served in the U.S. Army. He was a "jack of all trades," but cars were his passion. He was especially proud of his '32 Ford Coupe that he built from the ground up.

He enjoyed spending his Saturday nights hanging out with the guys "shooting the breeze" about cars and life. Liza and Perla would like to thank all of their father's friends for keeping him close to their hearts and for making wonderful memories with him. May God bless you always.

Visitation will be on Saturday, April 10 from 11:00 AM to 2:00PM. Memorial Service at 2:00 PM at Heavenly Grace Funeral Home in La Feria.
