I first met Martin in 2017. I know that is not long ago but it seems like Martin and I were friends for a lifetime. That's how it was with Martin. When he took you in as a friend, it was eternal. I first met Martin in a hole in the wall Latin bar in Garden Grove. It was next to were I worked and I sure could use a cold beer after a very frustrating day. I walked in and was the only "guedo" in the place. I immediately got the look of "I think your in the wrong place guedo" from everyone in the bar except Martin. Everybody just knew I was 5-0. Martin actually came over to me and introduce himself to me. "Hello, I am "Corona Martin." I said what the hell kind of a name is Corona Martin? He laughed so hard he started crying. He told me that was what everyone called him. I told him, well I guess you can call me "Modelo Keith." He asked me what the hell kind of a name is Keith? (I guess he understood the Modelo part) I started laughing my head off and told him, you can call me Leon. He asked why Leon and I told him it was my middle name. He then introduced me to everyone as Leon and they all heard Leo, so from then on I was Leo. We would often go to new places (for me) and he would always say I was a good guy and could be trusted, I was not a cop. Martin actually introduced me to the love of my life at a place I had never been to before. I will always be grateful to Martin.

The thing about my relationship with Martin was our birthdays. We were only 1 day apart and we had that connection, along with many others. We celebrated our birthdays together going forward. Martin never had an argument with anyone we knew. He was a gentle soul and a genuinely great guy. If someone was in need, he would give, even if he did not have it to give. He always made it work.
Compa you are greatly missed. You left this mortal earth way to soon. God must have needed you in heaven as I have no doubt you are with him now. God bless and keep you always. I truly miss you my friend.
Salud,
Leo
