Robert “Bob” Lee Martinez Sr., of Clarksburg, passed peacefully in his home on June 12th, 2020.

After 93 long years of life, Bob grew to know and love many; some who parted from this world before him, and some still with us today. Most notably, his mother, Bertha Watkins; his father, Joseph Martinez; his stepfather Bob Watkins, and his sweetheart, Bernice Houillet, preceded him in death. He is survived by his children, Cheryl Martinez Loftus and husband Dan, Sr. of Maryland, Jeffery Martinez and his wife Karen of Wilsonburg, Robert Martinez Jr. of Clarksburg, and Theresa Marie Prickett of Worthington, as well as his grandchildren, Sharman Gallo, Jessica Martinez, Matthew Martinez, Breanna Prickett and Brandon Prickett and great-grandchild, Oliva Gallo.

Bob served our country in the U.S. Army during World War II and was a master commercial electrician with Adamston Flat Glass Company. Prior to that he worked at Akro Agate and on the Ford assembly line.

Bob prided himself on hard work and instilled those values in his family as well. We would not be the children, grandchildren, and friends we are without his guidance in life. Though he told tough truths when they were needed, he was always proud of each and every one of us. There was never a problem that he could not solve, and his knowledge and guidance will be missed.

Bob was a fun person to be around. He always had a joke or two for you, and never failed to make you laugh. He enjoyed spending time with his friends at The VFW and American Legion. His time at home was often spent with his children, but he also enjoyed quiet time alone and gardening. He was a sharp man, always keeping up with new technology, reading Popular Mechanics, and working word puzzles in his spare time.

A graveside service will be held at Floral Hills Memorial Gardens on Thursday, June 18, 2020 at 12:00 Noon where full military graveside rites will be accorded.
