Daniel Vega Martinez Jr. October 28,1969- April 28,2021
Daniel was called home to be with the Lord on April 28, 2021 surrounded by love. Born to Daniel Martinez Sr and Mary Vega Martínez in Madera, CA. Daniel was a man who loved God. Even in his times of trial, he brought many to Christ with his loving nature and his stern but comforting tone. Daniel was the kind of man who never judged because he knew all too well what being in ‘those shoes’ felt like. He would give the shirt off his own back (literally) to make sure that others were taken care of. Daniel’s life will be remembered by his hard work, and his unconditional love for his family. He will be deeply missed and his memory will live on forever in the hearts of those he loved.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 28 years, Alejandra Martinez, his beautiful daughters, Alejandra Mejía, Teresa Quezada, and Daniela Martinez whom he taught to have amazing taste in music (“because what they play on the radio these days just isn’t good anymore”), how to just jump in and swim (this really happened but also applies to the rest of our lives), and above all else, to just simply be thankful. He has three amazing Grandchildren, Tony Quezada, Elizabeth Quezada and Julian Mejia who he took great pride in and who now have a bank full of corny jokes and phrases to use as they please, hilarious “back in my day” stories and countless memories of having ice cream together with their Grandpa O (even when moms had said no, he would still sneak them some). He is also survived by his three older sisters, Diane Lutje, Debbie Navarro, and Yolanda Flores. He was preceded in death by his mother and father, Mary Vega Martínez and Daniel Martínez Sr.
