Rogerio P. Martinez

October 8, 1933August 9, 2019

Rogerio P. Martinez Sr., "Roger" of Houston, Texas went to be with his Lord and Savior on August 9, 2019. He was born in San Benito, Texas on October 8, 1933 to Guadalupe Martinez and Catarina Perez. He graduated from Rio Hondo and received his high school diploma. On February 10, 1954, he married his love, Teresa Dorsett. Rogerio had a career in security services and a passion for dancing, music, the gun range, and of course being with family. He is survived by Norma D. Martinez, Nelda Lozano, Teresa Dillehay (Leonard), Noel Reeves (Guy), Sylvia Martinez, Carlos Martinez (Liliana), Pam Wurtzburger (Dave), Lou Rios (Hafa); siblings, Margarita M. Galvan “Mage”, Maria M. Ysaguirre, Feliberto Martinez, Juan Martinez, Elida M. Valdez “Lile”, Grace M. Munoz, Sylvia M. Dominguez, Narcisco Martinez, and Felica Martinez; numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren and one great-great grandchild. Rogerio is preceded in death by his parents, his son, Roger Martinez, Jr. and siblings, Eloisa M. Reyna and Marcelo Martinez. Roger was a loving and humble man. He never liked to be the center of attention. In life and now in death, he wouldn't want us to focus on that. He will always be remembered by those of us who knew him and loved him. Although we will miss him, we take comfort in the good feelings and memories of his smile, love, and hard work ethic. He was selfless, kind, and wasn't ever too busy for his family. He would want us to "keep on trucking".
