Leonard Martinez, Jr. was born in Lubbock TX on November 9th, 1963. He passed away September 7, 2021, at the age of 57. Leonard was an excellent student and graduated from Monterey High School in 1982. He loved his family dearly, and enjoyed family get togethers and barbecues. He had many close friends and loved them all like family as well. He enjoyed going out, playing music, and just ‘having fun’ with all his loved ones. Leonard was a huge animal lover and throughout his lifetime he had many pets, which included dogs, ducks, rabbits, and a very, very special cat named Emily. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
