“And think of him as living in the hearts of those he touched…. for nothing loved is ever lost and he was loved so much.” His Journeys Just Begun by Ellen Brenneman.
Terence “Scotty” Martinez, 57 of Brighton Township, passed away on Saturday, January 25, 2020 at Brighton Rehab and Wellness Center.
He was born on July 19, 1962 in Rochester, PA to the late Terence and Carol Martinez from Center Township.
He is survived by one brother, Charles (Pam) Martinez of Belvedere, New Jersey, one sister, Martha (Bill) Myers of Monaca, his nephews; Jacob (Molly) Martinez of New Jersey, and William Myers of Monaca, his nieces, Sara (Rick) Rogers of New Jersey, Elizabeth Martinez of New York City, and Danielle Martinez of Washington, DC and great niece, Lucy Martinez of New Jersey.
Scotty resided in a group home run by HAP Enterprises for over 25 years. Martha Myers would like to give a special thanks to all the caregivers who loved him as their own over the years. Extra special gratitude is sent to the angels who spent many hours as his companion in the last nine months of his life, Debra Penney, Gina Viccari-Krebs, Gia Krebs, Rileigh Krebs, and Julie Zubak.
Scotty never met a stranger and made friends everywhere he went. In his spare time, he enjoyed Reader’s Digest Magazines and pointing to his chin, nose, mouth and elbows. Scotty had the most engaging smile and spread joy to every person he crossed paths with. His smile and joyful personality will be missed dearly.
A Celebration of Life for Scotty will be held on Saturday, February 22, 2020 from 11:00 am until the time of service at 12:00 pm in the Simpson Funeral & Cremation Services, 1119 Washington Avenue, Monaca.
