Leonel "Marti" R. Marti

November 22, 1939 ~ February 22, 2021 (age 81)


On Monday, February 22, 2021, my Paw Paw – Leonel R. Marti – went to heaven. He had Lewy Body Dementia and he went to sleep peacefully with my family and his bunny by his side. Paw Paw lived in King, NC, was 81 years old and he was my very best friend.

Paw Paw is survived by his two daughters Vickie and Heleena (Sissie) Marti, a son Sergio Marti, a granddaughter Susie Matthews (Brandon), a great-grandson Trenton Matthews, one sister Elietta M. Arauz and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Like hundreds of cousins!

Waiting for him in heaven is my Nana, Kathleen “Kat” Marti. Right behind her in line are his daddy Serafin and his mommie Angela V. Marti. Pushing their way to the front are his brothers and sister: Mengo, Chico, Santos, Sergio, Ivan, Eddie and Angela R. Marti.

The funeral service will be privately held on February 25, 2021, at Slate Funeral Home in King, NC. You can come and visit us there on Saturday, February 27, 2021, from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

In addition to flowers, memorials may be made in honor of my Paw Paw to Trellis Supportive Care, 101 Hospice Lane, Winston-Salem, NC 27103. Arrangements are in the care of Slate Funeral Home.

And till the end, he was my very best friend. Love, Trenton
