Justin A. Martinez, age 20, passed away on October 5, 2022. He was born on March 11, 2002 to Emilia Valdez and Frank Martinez. He graduated from West Oso High School in 2020. Justin was a laborer and plumber for Fulton Construction. He enjoyed being with his two children and family, taking trips and long drives downtown. He also loved gaming and listening to music. He will always be remembered for his devotion to protect his children, his family and friends. He always had good intentions with a heart that wanted to make sure everyone was happy. He will always be remembered through his beautiful babies, his splitting image with those beautiful curls. He put all of his heart into everything he did, whether it was playing his game or making his babies happy, to picking on and giving his sisters a hard time. LOL! He will always be remembered by his smile. That smile could change the atmosphere to any room when he walked in. Justin was a loving son, grandson, brother, nephew, cousin father and friend.
