Phillip Rafael Martinez, 32, our beloved, has been called home to heaven on January 19, 2020 in Phoenix, Arizona. He was born May 25, 1987 in Phoenix, Arizona, son of Mariano Martinez, Jr., and Susanna Sonja Martinez.
Phillip was a man of faith and praised god regularly for helping him get through his struggles in life. He was a parishioner at Santa Ana Catholic Church in Tremonton, Utah.
Phillip enjoyed life and loved being with his family and friends. He enjoyed listening to music while singing his heart out. He loved playing video games with his brother, nieces and nephews and friends. He grew a love for fishing and enjoyed showing off his fishing skills.
His love for his nieces and nephews MaryJane, Milli, Vivian, Phoenix, Aiden, Andre and Austin was endless, and he loved to spoil and spend time with them. Phillip was a devoted son and brother who loved and cherished his parents and siblings. He will be sorely missed.
He is survived by his parents and siblings Andrea Villalobos (Mario), Victoria Gilkey (Wesley), Mariano Martinez III (Monica), 13 aunts and uncles, 49 cousins and many extended family members. He is preceded in death by his aunts Sylvia Stankov, Manuela Martinez, his uncle Julio Martinez and grandparents Teresa Martinez, Mariano Martinez SR and Francis Vasquez.
