I've known the Martinez family for 40 + yrs. Bro. Eli served on the church board where I grew up. He was the Best example of a Christian husband, father,grandfather and friend. Always taking caring of Sis Martinez , opening the door for her and taking her where ever she needed to be. Serving our church, he for many years prepared the communion elements and always did it with a smile on his face and love in his heart. Played on the church softball team with him for many years and was one of my leaders in the Royal Ranger program. His love for God, family & friends will be something I will remember him for many years to come. Our thoughts & prayers go to his family today and in the days to come. God Bless, Greg, Kim & Ryan Gentry

What I remember most about Elias is him taking mother and I after I graduated from Mary-Hardin Baylor to buy my first car.
I remember he and Adelfa living in San Antonio and going to visit them in my teens. I will always remember the whole family as fine Christians that practiced their faith and people that I look up to with a lot of respect. God Bless you and be with you as you grief his loss. Tommie Haliman

I've had the pleasure of getting to know Eli over the past three years and it was an honor to get to know him.
His example of how he took care of his wife Adelphia (sorry if misspelled) was a true example of how God's would want us to treat our own wives.
He was a blessing and my family and I will miss him always.
Be blessed.
