Robert L. Martinez
Robert L. Martinez, 58, of Taos passed away unexpectedly on December 18, 2015. Those who knew our loved one knew that he was kind hearted man who loved his family with all he had. He was always willing to lend a helping hand. Whether you met him through his work at Taos Schools cafeteria, Chile Line or the Ancianos Senior Program, he always wanted to make sure that everyone had plenty to eat and accepted anyone he came into contact with without judgement. Though he was a man of few words, he always had such a calming, loving, welcoming presence about him that made people feel at ease. He was a jokester, magician, avid fisherman, swimmer and diver who loved his Denver Broncos. Robert loved his wife, daughters, grandchildren, great grandchildren and all other family members and friends so much that we all knew that no matter what we needed he would be there for us.
