March 19, 1948 - September 7, 2021
Adrian, age 73, went to his heavenly home on Tuesday, September 7, 2021. He was a native of New Orleans, and a longtime resident of Hammond and a lifelong fan of the New Orleans Saints. He served in the United States Army and was a Vietnam Veteran. Adrian was an extremely hard-working man with exceptional skills. Forty years ago, he built his family’s Hammond home with his own hands, hammering every nail. Adrian never met a stranger and would do anything for anyone. He was known for his generosity and showed his beautiful caring heart. Outdoors was a comfortable place for Adrian to be. Whether fishing or tending his gardens; raising his chickens and peacocks. First and foremost in his life was his family. To Adrian, his world revolved around being together especially during the holidays. Thanksgiving and Christmas were his favorites; his holiday displays were his pride and joy. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend who is already dearly missed by all who knew and loved him. “Fly High, Jay Bird, Fly High” Adrian is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Cynthia Dooley Martinez; children, Kelley Farley Martinez, Kristan Pedesclaux (Miguel), Keva Fontanille (Jason); grandchildren, Micah McGary (Alejandra), Andrew McGary, Bria Quiroga (Christian), Zoe Pedesclaux, Jackson Fontanille, Leah Fontanille; great-grandchildren; Evangeleen, A.J., Andres, Beaux; brother, Miguel Martinez Sr. (Kendy); niece, Ashley Martinez; and nephew, Miguel Martinez Jr. Adrian is preceded in death by his parents, Adrian and Lorraine Martinez; and sister, Aurora Martinez Leonard.
