Nando Rodrigo Martinez is organizing this fundraiser.
Hello, my name is Fernando and I am the youngest son of three from Mario Martinez. My two older brothers are Rodney and Mario. I received a text message on Saturday (Aug. 5th 2017) and the message read that my father was transported to St. David's South Austin Hospital by ambulance. We were asked to wait in the lobby and about an hour passed and a social worker approached us at the lobby. We got a brief explanation of an update on my father's condition. A doctors approached us and informed us that my father's heart stopped working (he was unconscious) and that death was imminent. Within minutes he passed away without a chance to exchange words. Mario Martinez was a caring, loving, supportive, and wonderful father. We are asking for donations to help cover some of the cost associated with his funeral arrangements. Anything helps, even a prayer. God bless.
