Martin enjoyed and competed in boxing in his youth. He was always an outgoing, talkative person, and a friend to whomever he met. He was always playing softball or kickball with his nieces and nephews. He would also take them to the corner market to buy snacks for them. He was always making us laugh with his jokes. He was a good writer of letters, poems, and he was a great storyteller. Martin had a contagious smile that would make everyone else smile; he loved being around his family and remembering the good old days when he was younger with his siblings. He loved coming up with great food ideas for late night snacks and watch a movie.
