It was very hard to find this notice cone up on facebook. Jeff and I worked with Nick at Delco/Delphi for years. We also found time to spend many fun times outside of work also. The memory of seeing Jimmy Buffet and drinking way to many Margaritas and also Cosby Stills,Nash and Youbg with George Thorogood and the awful smell of marijuana in the air. I kept asking Jeff what smelled so bad and he kept shushing me up. I had never been around it before. They thought I was so green!!! Nick was a funny guy and we were always laughing. What an infectious personality . Prayers for Jenny and all the kids! RIP our sweet friend.🙏💔

I worked with Nick at Delco/Delphi. He was a great guy and one of the hardest workers I knew. Always willing to help and do whatever it took to get the job done. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

I've known Nick for over 40 years and he was always the same. He was a kind hearted person and was ready to help anytime you needed it. A "shirt off his back" kind of guy. Softball, fishing, or just hanging out, Nick was there. You'll be missed my friend.

Kathy and I are saddened by the loss of a good friend, Mr. Nick Martinelle. We have many great memories of Nick. I met Nick in 1985 playing softball, our friendship endured ever since. Among other things, Nick and I fished together a lot; not only in Indiana but in Wisconsin and Tennessee. Being on the water with Nick was always a good time. Nick was always willing to assist me on projects around my house when I needed a helping hand. When I asked, he was there to help. The last couple of years were physically hard on Nick. May he rest in peace now. We will miss Nick and never forget him. We will keep his family in our prayers.

Deb and I are very sorry for the loss of Nick. We have many wonderful memories of the times we spent together. Fishing, playing ball or just hanging out. It was always a good time. The best times were just hang’n out and enjoying each other’s company. We were always smiling and laughing and Nick’s smile was the biggest of all. Never a dull moment. It was like being a part of one big family. When I first met Nick, he told me you need to come over to the apartment and hang out with us. That was Nick. He welcomed everyone with his warm smile and a frosty beverage. It was our pleasure to be a part of Nick’s life and he will never be forgotten.
We love you guys.

So sorry for the Loss of Nick. He was a good friend and a Softball buddy. He and Camille made me God Father of their Son Nick Jr. many years ago, and I was privileged to accept. Nick and I had some good times. Plenty of Partying. He will be solely missed by family and friends. Nick is in a better place now. Rest in Heaven Mr. Nick Martinelle. Your friend always Larry Berner

My Uncle Nick and I more or less grew up together. We spent many days in our youth at my Great Grandmother/his Grandmother Gracie's. My Mom (his sister Betty Jean) would always tell us to behave and not upset our great grandmother. We still wrestled on the floor, but Gracie didn't seem to mind. Nick also spent a lot of time at our home in Speedway. There, we watched movies, ate popcorn and had some wicked pillow fights. I was at his high school graduation - such a proud day for him. I also remember him bringing a shy Camille to our home on 80th when they began dating. Despite any troubles, Nick's words to me were always loving and supportive. Rest in peace dear Uncle Nick.
