Obituary

It is with pain that our families announce the death of Andrés Martinez Ponce. Mr. Ponce suddenly passed away on Sunday, July 24, 2022, surrounded by his family. Everyone knows that Don Andrés was a very humble, kind, hardworking, easy-going, and loving person that would help you without wanting anything in return. He loved to remind anyone that “cuando hay, hay y cuando no hay, no hay.” Originally from Jacala De Ledezma, Hidalgo, Mexico, Andrés married and had four children. Andrés spent his life working extremely hard to give his family everything he could while ensuring that his mother and father were cared for to the best of his abilities. Like many other migrants, Andrés’s dream was to become a part of this country, and in September 1990, he was granted permanent residency in the United States. Years later, once he became a citizen, he achieved his goal of bringing his kids to this country. One thing that gave him joy was loading up his truck with goods for his family and friends and driving 1,800 miles one way to Mexico to personally deliver them during the holiday season. He also loved to bring back many native goods, including “pan de rancho” (bread from the ranch), so the people in the US that couldn’t travel like him could enjoy a little something from their hometown. On one fateful night while out with friends, he met “Lupita” on a dance floor, and years later, with the blessing of her kids, he married her. Don Andrés and Lupe would tie the knot in June 2016 and instantly gained four extra kids and three grandkids: Alexa Berenice, Axel Raúl, and Alexia. Don Andrés would often mention that having arrived in Lupita’s life gave him the utmost happiness in his life. He’d say he felt loved by all four of her kids, which made him feel part of the family. Don Andrés loved his parents, kids, wife, and his ability to care for them more than anything. He is survived by his beloved mom Esperanza, his wife Guadalupe, his kids Javier, Andres, Araceli, and Liliana, along with six grandchildren, Sofia, Brian, Jesus, Alison, Ian, and Andres Sarai. He leaves behind his sisters: Inez Martinez, Maria Guadalupe Martinez, and Alfonsa Trejo. He also leaves behind his stepson & roommate, Jesus Antonio, and stepdaughters Angelica, Rocio, and Aurora. He’s predeceased by his father, Mr. Gonzalo Martinez, and brother Martin, who passed away just over a year before him.

Es con gran dolor que nuestras familias anuncian el fallecimiento de Andrés Martinez Ponce. Don Andrés falleció repentinamente la mañana del domingo, 24 de julio, 2022 rodeado por su familia. Todos saben que Don Andrés era muy humilde, amable, trabajador, tranquilo y muy amoroso que te ayudaba sin esperar algo a cambio. Le encantaba recordarles a todos que “Cuando hay, hay, y cuando no hay, no hay.” Originario de Jacala De Ledezma, Hidalgo, México. Andres se caso y tubo 4 hijos. Andrés pasó su vida trabajando extremadamente duro para darle a su familia todo lo que podía mientras se aseguraba de que su madre y padre fueran atendidos lo mejor que el pudiera. Como muchos otros migrantes, el sueño de Andrés era ser parte de este país y en septiembre de 1990 obtuvo la residencia permanente en los Estados Unidos. Años después, una vez que obtuvo la ciudadanía, logró su objetivo de traer a sus hijos a este país. Una cosa que le daba alegría era llenar su “troca” con artículos para su familia y amigos y conducir 1,800 millas de ida a México para entregarlos personalmente durante la temporada navideña. También le encantaba traer muchos productos nativos, incluyendo el "pan de rancho" para que las personas en los EE. UU. que no podían viajar como él, pudieran disfrutar de algo de su pueblo. En una dichosa noche mientras salía con amigos, conoció a “Lupita” en un baile y años después, con la bendición de sus (Lupe) hijos, se casó con ella. Andrés y Lupe se casaron en junio, 2016 e instantáneamente ganó 4 hijos adicionales y 3 nietos: Alexa Berenice, Axel Raúl and Alexia. Don Andrés solía mencionar que el haber llegado a la vida de Lupita le causó la mayor felicidad. El decia que se sentía querido por los cuatro hijos de Lupe, haciéndolo sentirse parte de la familia. Ese sentimiento lo hizo verdaderamente feliz. Andrés amaba más que nada a sus padres, hijos, esposa y su habilidad de cuidarlos. Lo sobrevive su amada mami Esperanza, su esposa Guadalupe, sus hijos Javier, Andrés, Araceli & Liliana junto con 6 nietos, Sofia, Brian, Jesús, Alison Ian y Andrés. Deja atrás a sus hermanas: Inez Martinez, Maria Guadalupe Martinez y Alfonsa Trejo. También deja atrás a su hijastro con el que vivía, Jesús Antonio e hijastras Angelica, Rocío y Aurora. Es precedido en muerte por su padre, Don Gonzalo Martinez, y hermano Martin que ambos fallecieron hace un año antes que el.
