July 27, 1939 — April 26, 2022

El Paso

Ysidoro (Chilo) Martinez Jr., age 82, of El Paso, Texas passed away on 26th day of April 2022. He was a proud graduate of Bowie High School and proudly served for 24 years in the United States Army retiring as a Sergeant First Class. He successfully completed 2 tours in Vietnam, 1 tour in Korea and 1 tour in Panama. Chilo was a lifelong fan of the Dallas Cowboys.

He is survived by his wife of 40 years Norma Martinez, his sister Mary Gonzalez, daughters Carmen Reynoso and Elizabeth Yañez, 14 grandchildren, 34 great-grandchildren and 8 great-great grandchildren. Chilo was preceded in death by both parents, 3 siblings and 2 daughters.

Chilo was a great listener, and he was quick to get to the crux of a conversation by asking “And your point is?”. He will be sorely missed by his wife Norma whom he loved dearly, his family and all those who knew him.
