In the time that I knew him, Lucio Martinez was a man of few words. He never needed flowery verbiage to express how much he loved his family. His hard work and resolve were never questioned. His love for his wife was an eternal one. His pride in his sons was everlasting, and his daughter even more so. Lucio Martinez was the textbook family man, a case to be studied and learned from. There is a beautiful contrast that this man who was robbed of his memory will never be forgotten.
