Obituary for Jose Antonio Martinez

Our precious child, Jose Antonio Martinez, age 9, of Hammond, Indiana, entered Heaven on Monday, November 20, 2017. He is survived by his parents: Guillermo and Lorena Martinez; his siblings: Jose DeJesus, Adriana, Guillermo, and Nereida; his grandfather, Manuel Gentil; and many nieces and nephews.

Jose was a 
4th grade student at the Lew Wallace Elementary School in Hammond, Indiana. He was full of energy and loved playing video games, going shopping, playing with his nieces and nephews, and eating his favorite foods—a plain cheeseburger from Burger King and hot Cheetos. Jose loved going to the beach and playing in the sand. Some of the best memories of him were with the family at the beach. Jose had a very generous heart and was so kind to everyone. 

A visitation will be held on Monday, November 27, 2017 from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. in the Jack Hyles Memorial Auditorium of the First Baptist Church, 523 Sibley Street, Hammond, Indiana. The funeral service will immediately follow at 3:00 p.m. 

For further information, please contact the funeral home, Memory Lane Funeral Home, 6305 W. Lincoln Highway (US 30), Crown Point, Indiana (219) 322-2050. You may leave condolences and order flowers from the website:
