Gaudencio "Lencho" Marin

June 25, 1938October 7, 2019

Gaudencio “Lencho” Marin was born on June, 25th 1938, in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, to his parents, Augustin and Isabel Marin. He is survived by his wife, Bertha Gonzalez Marin, and their 4 children, Alma Marin, Lourdes Robles (Gilbert), Patricia Navarro, and John Marin (Rosemary), as well as 10 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren, and 3 siblings, Isela Lujan (Raymundo), Ramon Marin, and Yolanda Rodriguez (Carlos). He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Carlos Marin. Lencho moved to the United States from Mexico as a young adult and gained his citizenship. He worked hard, but didn’t need a lot. Mostly, he thoroughly enjoyed his family. He was a humble, good man who never met a person he didn’t like. He often took road trips, including to see his brothers in California and his in-laws in the Mexican state of Durango. He most recently travelled to the beach in Puerto Pinasco, where he enjoyed every minute. He also loved Nortenas and Tejano music, dancing, an occasional cold beer, and a hot cup of coffee. He took pride in keeping his truck in immaculate shape and spent his whole life sharply dressed. Visitation will be on Friday October 11th, from 5:00 p.m.to 9:00 p.m., with the service at 7:00 p.m., at Martin Funeral Home East, 1460 George Dieter. The Funeral Mass will be at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 12th, at San Antonio de Padua Church, 503 Hunter, at the corner of Hunter and North Loop. Interment will follow the Mass at Memory Gardens of the Valley, 4900 McNutt Rd, Santa Teresa, NM. After the services, family and friends will gather at the home of John and Rosemary Marin, 11616 Lake Erie, El Paso, Texas. All are welcome.

My suegro was a great man. He always treated me like a daughter. He was not someone who talked about personal feelings much because he showed love with his actions. But, at my wedding, he told me he knew John and I were meant to be together by the way John looked at me and talked about me. He also said he knew we would take care of each other, but advised me never to take the relationship for granted. I have tried to follow that advice and it has worked for 31 years. I loved him very much and while I can't imagine life without him, I will honor his memory for the rest of my life. He was truly good to the core and we were all very blessed to share our lives with this beautiful man. Que en paz descanse.

The memory of my grandfather will forever live in our hearts. I will forever remember his whitty sense of humor and the joy he got from going to a family party with good food, a cold beer and laughs. Thank you for always making your family a priority and equally sharing your love. You will greatly be missed at our Sunday get togethers. I love you and will miss you dearly.
