December 11, 1981 — September 27, 2022

Martin Christopher Rios III passed away on September 27th, 2022 at the young age of 40.
Martin was born December 11, 1981  in Westminster, California to Justine Palmore and Martin Menchaca Rios Jr. In his younger years Martin lived between Texas with his father and family or with his mother and sister in Oklahoma. Martin was a hard worker and enjoyed what he did. He had a passion for drawing including the occasional tattoos to close friends. He was a sentimental guy that loved deep rooted conversations and filling the whole room with laughter. He enjoyed a wide range of music such as the blues, old 50s love songs, rap and enjoyed slow jams. Above everything, he loved his son Jordan and his mom. Martin lived life hard and fast but with passion and always a smile on his face. He will be greatly missed. Fly high Paco.

Martin is preceded in death by his father, Martin Menchaca Rios Jr.; Grandparents Glenda Crichton and Robert Palmore.

He is survived by his son, Jordan Bell Rios; mother Justine Paulsen and step dad Dan; sisters Andrea Smith and Estrella Rios; nephews Alex Rios, Andrew Rios, Ashton Smith, and Benjamin Basaldua along with extended family- Grandparents,  aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
