Martin was a caring, loving, humble man. He loved his family and there was nothing he wouldn't do for them. Rest in Peace, Babe I miss you every second of the day and still cannot believe you are gone

Brother,
Your exit from this world was so shockingly fast! I still can’t believe it! You didn’t give me a last farewell nor ever said goodbye. You were gone before we knew it and only God knows why.
Although we all feel that you were taken far too soon from this world, I know that you lived a beautiful life and changed the world for the better. You were generous, loving, and always dedicated to your family. You were always there, at the drop of a hat, if anyone needed anything. That's just who you were - always thinking of others, and always there, especially for your family.
I don't have the words to express quite how heartbroken I am about losing you, and I don't know what life will look like without you, but I do know that I have been incredibly lucky to have had you as my brother. I will hold the memory of you close to my heart for the rest of my days.
Thank you again for your service to this country and for all you did for our family. There are no goodbyes for us, wherever you are, you will always be in our hearts! Love you my brother, my hero! 💙🙏🏽

Our sincerest condolences and prayers go out to the De La Rosa family. Martin was my platoon sergeant in Hawaii and Afghanistan. He was always a calm and collected leader that loved to mentor his Soldiers and especially loved to talk about his family whenever the opportunity presented itself. We spent too many days and nights in the mountains and valleys “hunting bad guys” but during it all, he’d always find the time to talk about life and make the corniest jokes ever!! Hahahaha! Thanks for having faith in me when I was a young hardheaded Soldier. Thank you for your service to our country, our brothers in arms, for being a great human being and thanks for the memories. May God bless your family as you watch over them from his kingdom. See you on the high ground my brother.

Compadre Martin
Gracias por haberme elegido como madrina de Ángel, tu primer hijo. Fue para mi un honor el saberme comadre de ustedes, Josie y tú. Recuerdo con amor ese momento tan bonito cuánto pusiste en mis brazos a tu hijo. Tu primer pedazo de tu corazón. Luego vinieron otros dos hijos Martin y Diana. Formaste junto con mi primera sobrina Josie una linda y amorosa familia. Dios te concedió conocer a Azaria tu preciosa nieta que llenó tu corazón de momentos que te llevarás contigo. Ahora, desde donde estés cuidarás de tu amada esposa, tus hijos y tu nieta. Ellos te honrarán como lo hicieron siempre. Dios te recibe con los brazos abiertos. Descansa en Paz.

Dad, I’m not even sure where I can begin. You have been such an amazing father to me and the best Tata for Azaria. I know she will be looking up to you every single day and I know you will still be helping us from afar. I miss you so much. I promise I will be strong for my own family and for mom. Azaria has been getting to meet all her family from El Paso like you’ve always wanted. I will continue to raise her to be the best person she can be, just like you did for me. You have had such a positive impact on every single person who came into your life. You treated all our friends with so much love like they were your own family. There was never a time when you would say something is impossible, you always found a way to get it done. I couldn’t have done any of this without you dad. You and mom have raised me to be such a strong woman, a loving girlfriend and supportive mama. I love you forever dad. I will never forget you.

My love i am feeling lost without you. For over 35 years you were always there for me. God gave us three wonderful kids Angel, Marcos and Diana, two wonderful daughter in laws Jessy and Mariah and an amazing son in law Jacob but most of all our little grand baby Azaria. I love you and I will never forget you . We would always say we loved each other just in case we died. I miss seeing you, spending time with you. I will forever be thankful that we got to spend this 35 years together.

Tio, I am heartbroken & still cannot believe you are gone. You were taken way too soon. I will forever cherish the many memories together throughout our summers visiting you and the family in San Antonio. You were always a phone call or text away & always celebrating our achievements. Thank you for everything, we love you & miss you soooo much! Until we meet again…. ❤️🕊
