Daniel A. Martinez was unexpectedly taken away from us on May 9th 2021. He was born in Canutillo, TX but Chandler is where he called home. Anyone who ever talked to him knew immediately how intelligent of a mind he possessed. In school he was always enrolled in advanced classes, from Cats to honor roll, to AP in High School. He had a love of music and could serenade for hours on the saxophone. Being in marching band in high school afforded him many opportunities like playing in the Disneyland parade for Christmas. He was an explorer and spoke highly of his travels thru Europe. An avid basketball fan, he would spend so many great memories with his family at Phoenix Suns or Mercury games as he was a season ticket holder for both teams. He will be immensely missed by his mom, dad, and brother. Visitation will be held on Tuesday May 18, 2021 from 6-8 pm at the Chapel of Bueler Mortuary and a funeral mass will be held on Wednesday May 19, 2021 at 11 am at St Mary’s Catholic Church.
