Obituary for Joseph Michael Martinez

Joseph Michael Martinez
Joseph Michael Martinez, age 70, passed away in his home on June 19, 2017.

He proudly served in the U.S. Army in Germany for 2 years. After leaving the Army he started work as a hod carrier which eventually evolved into very skilled brick laying work which he continued for the next 30+ years. He had lived in Arvada for a short time then moved to Grand Junction in 1972 and worked in many surrounding towns. Handsome “Big Joe” made many great friends over the years. He was an avid horseshoe player, enjoyed watching the Packers win, LOVED going to auctions, and lived for loving on his daughters, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and spoiling his dogs.

Joe is survived by his daughter Giovanna Martinez and granddaughter Gianna Martinez, and daughter Chantae Pennell, granddaughter McKale Pennell, grandson Kaulan Pennell, great-granddaughter Oakley Pennell, and great-grandson Kannon Pennell, and his brothers John Martinez and James Martinez.

Joe will be dearly missed by all.
