Obituary of Adrian Camilo Martinez
On July 21, 2023 Adrian Camilo Martinez passed away with the love of his life by his side. He was 37 years old. He was a beloved husband, father, son, brother, nephew, cousin, and friend. Born on August 27, 1985 in Santa Barbara, California, Adrian was the oldest of four children to Hector and Betty Martinez.
Adrian spent his life in Carpinteria where he created his community of support and friendship. He attended Carpinteria schools and graduated from Carpinteria High School in 2003. He gave back to his community through coaching soccer at CHS and cheering on his family and friends from the sidelines. He shared his passion for sports with those around him by watching Manchester United soccer games, attending Dodger games, and cheering for the Dallas Cowboys. That same passion was present in his relationship with his mom, dad, and sister, in the bond he had with his brothers and his friends who were like brothers, in the fun-loving interactions he had with his in-laws, in the chats he had with his cousins, nieces and nephews and the connections he made with his aunts, uncles and grandparents.
Adrian shared his life with his wife Christina and daughter Mila. His love for both was unlike any other. He and Christina created a beautiful life together that was both inspirational and fun. Their marriage was one of a kind and they made you feel like you were a part of it and took you along for the ride. From the day he became a dad, his life revolved around the Princess to his Fairy-Tale, Mila. From going on daddy dates to sharing a strong shoe game to going on family adventures, Adrian showed Mila the best parts of life. He took such pride in being a husband and father. He was proud of all that he had accomplished in his career, which included furthering his education at Santa Barbara City College with 3 Associate Degrees so that he could build a bigger and better future for Mila, Christina, and himself. A truly dedicated family man, a best friend to many, a joy to all who met him. He was a genuine, humble, and loving man that so many were blessed to be in the presence of. Adrian will forever be missed and loved by so many.
Adrian is survived by his wife, Christina, daughter, Mila, parents Hector and Betty, and siblings, Hector, AJ, and Karina and the rest of his loving family.
