Martin Reines, age 50, of Port Orange, Florida, passed away peacefully after a long illness.

Martin had an amazing core group of friends for over 40 years Michael Higgins, Bob Coe, Eddie Chorjel and Melissa Gabriel. But, above all else he loved being a father.
A loving father, son, and brother, Martin will be missed by many.

Marty was my daughter's friend from high school. She began doing all the grocery shopping for our family. Marty and Mike were both working at the super market and began coming to the house to hang out. I had never met young men who were more attractive, nice looking who had such great manners. This evolved into including Bob Coe and later Ed, they bonded into a group of great kids who stuck together having good clean fun; all had jobs and kept busy.
Marty has told me about his beautiful children. I know his devotion to them was matched by his devotion to his parents and sister Kim. I'm thankful that I got to know him and expect to see him again in a better world, well and healthy.
Meanwhile, I grateful that I got to know this truly "Golden Boy" and young man during his short time here. Rest In Peace Marty

I’ll always remember when we were kids, and going to wrestling matches at Spruce Creek High School and he introduced me to the sounds of AC/DC. I’ll miss you buddy. Prayers to you and your family.

My brother was the best. I will definitely miss him every single day. We had a very close special bond, he was my first friend and my best friend. I will miss rocking out with you, grilling and watching the Gators play. We have so many awesome memories to cherish. I just so surreal to believe you aren't coming over tomorrow the watch the Gators crush the bulldogs. I will miss you forever. I can't wait to see you again. Rock in Peace.. Cheers! Love you so very much!!!!!!!!

My father was a determined, powerful, successful man. But the most remarkable thing about my dad was that he was so gentle and loving to everyone he met and he left a lasting impression on all friends and even passerby's. I relished in the fact that the number one comment I received in relation to my father was he was so thoughtful and such a friendly and hilarious man. I witness him light up every room that he walked into. And when he made friends, they were die hard life long friends.
I have a piece of him in both my younger sister, Amanda, and brother, Marty, which makes me love and cherish them even more. My sister has his hilarious wit and my brother has his natural instinct for unconditional love. And the love he still had for my mother, Aitza, could not be matched in this life time.
A piece of me feels missing which each and every passing day. I don’t plan on filling it because this piece will always belong to my father. Though it hurts, I love it all the same.
Our bond is unbreakable. I am so proud to be Martin Reines’s daughter.

Heidi, Jacob, Lily and I are so grateful to have a friend like Marty come into our lives. He is a true friend. We are forever thankful to him for touching our lives with his genuine care, generosity, compassion, concern and joy that he also shared with so many others without judgement. He just made the world a better place to be. With too many to mention, we couldn't even imagine trying to pick a favorite memory but just thinking about all the great times we've had, brings us smiles, laughter, comfort and peace that will last forever. Thank you, Marty for brightening our world and enriching our lives! We wish for you to be at restful peace. And to your Mom and Dad, Kim, Isabelle, Marty, Amanda, extended family and friends, our thoughts and prayers are with you for comfort and peace.
God Bless. We love you!
