So Saddened to hear the passing of Rocky
I go back many years with Rocky
Good times and bad times with Rocky
In the early 90’s Rocky came home and told me I saved his life by him going back to CDC.
After that Rocky was a different person walking with the Lord . He was such a different person
Pleasant ,Happy ,great to be around and so positive.
For many years we butted heads but now great friends
Rocky asked me many times to allow this person to go to a program instead of Prison
I thought so much of Rocky’s opinion
And believes I allowed his recommendations
Sometimes it worked sometimes it didn’t
But over time we became close friends
We had coffee spoke about different ideas on helping people in need
I saw him late last year over a cup of coffee
Rocky is in Heaven working with the Lord
God Bless him and his Family
I’m out of the Country and unable to attend his services
I’ll be back soon and Rocky an I will talk again about Rocky’s Dream of help person

Uncle Rocky,
My heart wears heavy and I’m deeply devastated that you are gone. We have gotten super close within the last few years and I am truly blessed of those memories and that bond we created. You came back into my life during my darkest days and at my low. You guided me into a better and stronger person then what I was and introduced me to a new world with new people I was once scared of. You introduced me back into the lord and taught me to have faith. You were just always there as someone I could just talk to about anything. You reminded me so much of my dad and it was such a blessing to be able to learn about the Martinez family and the family history I didn’t get an opportunity to attain from my dad. I’m going to miss hearing your voicemails checking up on me, our regular chats, our breakfast at your favorite Mexican spots where you would always order your huevos rancheros, our trips to church and being your guest/date to various missionary functions where you would speak. I know you are in a better place and with Sylvia like you wished to be. I am blessed with all the memories and moments I was able to spend with you uncle. I love you forever and know you are up there with my dad and will be a new guardian angel I know who will protect me and help you keep my faith strong.

My condolences to my Uncle’s children and grandchildren. It is definitely a sad loss. He was such a great man. Along with his faith his family (wife, children and grandchildren) were always something that’s was his priority. He was so proud of each one of you and always spoke so highly of you all and expressed his love he had for each one. Although, he may not be here in flesh his spirit and guidance will always be with each one of you forever. Love you all and I’m so sorry for your loss. The Rudy Martinez family is always here for each one of you.
