Martin Mendoza (February 1972 – August 2021) was the youngest son of Henry and Veronica (Bea) Mendoza. He was a loving son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend.
It was never a dull moment when you were in his presence and he’s deeply missed by all who knew him. While he never had children, he cherished his late dogs Rusty and Chico as his babies. He dedicated his career to working construction and met many people along the way that became like family. Marty found no greater joy than sailing his boat on Lake Michigan. As captain of his boat he loved to entertain his many family and friends that would join him for a ride. He loved life and lived it to its fullest and now must sail on into eternal life.
His memory will live on in those he is survived by including his parents, brothers (Ralph and Alice) (Henry), sister (Anna), fiancé (Michele Dundon) and countless aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. As many would say, “ain’t no party without Marty.”
