Pete went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, May 24, 2018, after a long illness.
He married Kathy Ledbetter in 1958, and they spent 60 years building their lives based on their strong faith in the Bible. They raised three children to also love and serve the word of God.
Pete was adored by his many grandchildren and over 25 “little Darlins.” Pete loved hunting, fishing, basketball and spending time with his family. He was self-proclaimed as the best cook he ever met, and was proud of being the shortest six-footer around. Pete left us with lots of laughter and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Memorial services will be held June 9 at 11 a.m. at First Baptist Church in Tooele.
Our family would like to thank the staff at Canyon Homecare and Hospice for helping to keep Pete comfortable in his last days.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Mountain America Credit Union, account name: Pete Martinez.
