Chris was born on November 23, 1968 in Hanford, CA to Sheila and Richard Martinez, where he resided until the family moved to the New england in 1974. Chris went to school in Somerville, MA and graduated in 1986 from Somerville High School. Chris worked at Uni-Cast in Londonderry, NH for 14+ years.

Chris leaves behind family members in California and Hawaii; Chris leaves his many friends and family members behind who loved him.

Chris was a very vibrant, “care free, happy go lucky” person from the time he was a young boy. Chris was soft spoken and gentle he didn’t like confrontation. He always had a light air around him. He had a big heart and beautiful kind smile that was infectious. He was a ray of sunshine even when he was sick. Chris was a fighter, he had open heart surgery at the ages of 8, 12 and then again in 2016. Chris took ill and got very sick fast and passed within a week. He fought to the end. He is a Superhero.

Chris loved Superheroes, as a child he had all the action figures. He went to all the movies, and he had all the shirts, hoodies, blankets, hats, and pj’s. Anything superhero!

Chris even had his own Superhero name “C-Man” which his brothers called him by. We love you Chris, and you are forever my brother, forever my friend.

The family would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers through this very difficult time. There will be a private service with family and friends for Chris at Boston Cremation in Malden.


Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

    The devastation I feel in whats left of my heart is unbearable & it feels like a part of it is missing & forever will be. I know you are in a better place at peace free from the stress & suffering of this world but that barely eases the pain. Our time together was short, too short but the love & memories I carry with me will last a lifetime . You were truly one of the best things to ever happen to me & Christian , an amazing once in a lifetime person I was blessed to have in my life. I know I will never find any other like you, your heart may have been broken but it was made of gold. I miss you & the life we had together & I will every day. I would give almost anything for one more hug & kiss, to hear you say my name or I love you or hear you laugh again, this feels so unfair & like a nightmare. You were too young & we had so much planned…things won’t be the same without you, our lives won’t be the same without you & I will never be the same. You were heart, my world & we miss you so much, until the day we meet again you’re always in our hearts & on our minds, we love you always❤

    I am simply lost for words my beautiful cousin, the memories we had will live forever. My heart was crushed when auntie Sheila took you, bobby, anthony & franny away to live in another place. I will cherish the times we did spend together at grandmas house. I remember her taking all of us to the grocery store and buying us goodies and we always got a color book and I wish we could have spent more time together cousin. I love you too infinity & beyond.

    Chris, my heart was ripped out of my chest once again, I can’t begin to express all the feelings I have right now. I can’t believe your gone, right before my eyes just like mom. My heart is broken and will never mend. I close my eyes and I can see you smiling at me. I take solace in knowing you are not alone. Please give mom a big hug and kiss for me tell her that I love her and miss her voice. Please say hi to grandma and grandpa when you see them. Chris I love you. You are my brother, my friend; forever loved, forever missed.

    We sat beside your bedside‚
    Our hearts were crushed and sore;
    We did our best to the end‚
    ‘Til we could do no more.
    In tears we watched you sinking‚
    We watched you fade away;
    And though our hearts were breaking‚
    We knew you could not stay.
    You left behind some aching hearts‚
    That loved you most sincere;
    We never shall and never will
    Forget you Father dear.
