Raymond G. Martineau

January 14, 1951March 31, 2018

Raymond G. Martineau, 67, passed away on March 31, 2018. He was the loving husband of Natale A. (Ginolfi) Martineau.

Born in Manchester, NH, he was the son of the late Joseph and Irene (Blanchard) Martineau. He leaves his godson, Christiaan Levesque, and his girl Brindee.

Raymond was a self-employed mechanic, a real “bulldog” at his job. He was a quiet, homebody kind of guy who loved being with his family and friends. He loved golfing, his animals, and kicking back admiring his wife’s garden. He was loved and will be greatly missed.

A gathering will be held on Friday, April 6th from 5-6 p.m. with a memorial service at 6 p.m. in the PONTARELLI-MARINO Home, 971 Branch Avenue, Providence.

Ray was a smart and witty mechanic that could repair anything brought to him. He saved my jeep and kept it running for years. Very intelligent and would go out of his way for me and my son. He was also great at solving personal problems and was always there when needed. My heart breaks that you are no longer here to talk to every morning or throughout the day. We lost a funny, talented, kind hearted friend and there will never be another like you. I am truly missing you and one day we will meet again. I know you are telling stories, giving advice, and helping everyone in heaven. That is you and always will be. Ray, I am so glad I got to know and be around you for all these years.

This is a sad day for me to hear that my good friend RAY has passed just recently. Ray has helped me to solve many problems with my vehicles. he was a Brilliant Auto Technician.
Many times he didn't charge me a fee for helping me.
I always brought him a black coffee and stuff. I always enjoyed sharing coffee with him and sharing stories about many things. Maybe right now he is with his Uncle making some Wine for the Angels. I know that he really loved Natale and said that she was his soulmate forever. I also know that Ray loved his dogs too. I met Natale once about aprox. one and a half years ago when someone was looking for a home for this big dog and Ray called Natale to the shop and both of them said yes we will take the dog.
We lost a Great Guy with a Heart of Gold. Ray will be surely be missed by many people. I am still in shock about his passing. I feel and I can only imagine how Natale is handling Ray's departure, they been together like forever. Some day Ray and Natale will be together again in Heaven

Dear Mrs. Martineau,
My family and I wanted to express our sincere condolences on Ray's passing. He was a great guy and did many favors for us over the years. I would stop by sometimes to bring him a coffee and just shoot the breeze with him.
I stopped at Valvoline today and asked one of the guys how Ray was doing. He told me he passed away last week. My wife did some searching and found the obituary on Pontarelli's web site. We are so sorry that we missed the notice in the Journal. We would have been there to pay our respects in person.
God Bless You, Ray. Rest in Peace.
Again, our sincere sympathy.

Dave Grassini and Family

Me and Ray have worked next to each other for the last 4 years, What a great person/friend. I remember in the beginning we didnt see eye to eye on may things but as we got to know each other that quickly changed.we grew to a point that at work we will talk daily and provide help and support whenever needed. Ray had a big heart and was always there to help me out when i needed him. I will always remember his great stories and unique humor. Ray will be deeply missed, Johnston will not be the same with out him. R.I.P Ray

Ray sold me my first car when I had first started to drive, it was a 1986 Cadillac Fleetwood, classic car from a classic guy. He was always there to help when you needed him, and would go out of his way for anyone. You will be missed Ray.
Thank you for this memory and many more, God bless.

I remember my first days working at the garage and then meeting you. You told me great stories all the time, and lots of life lessons as well. You were a fountain of knowledge, not just about cars, but about life. Your memory will live on. You are truly missed brother.
