He was born on September 22, 1906 which puts him at the young age of 109. As John Reinke says, it would be nice to interview him about back in the day at Manhattan. We do not know if he is still living and in Santa Fe but I will look into it. A prayer in remembering Mr. Martinez is appreciated. Thank you. God Bless.
