Obituary for Jimmy Martinez

Santiago "Jimmy" Martinez, age 59, longtime resident of Olustee, Oklahoma and formerly of Blair, Oklahoma, passed away Tuesday, February 16, 2021 in Amarillo, Texas.

Jimmy was born in Altus on July 6, 1961 to his parents, Ray Martinez and Escolastica "Nikki" (Roblez) Martinez. Jimmy attended Altus Public Schools and was a proud graduate of the Class of 1980 from Blair High School. He grew up in the Catholic faith and was a Christian saved by God's grace. Jimmy was a cowboy at heart. He farmed and ranched his whole life. He worked as a mechanic for Wilmes and most recently was a forklift operator at the PCCA in Altus for the last eight years. Jimmy enjoyed going to rodeos, team roping, being outdoors while fishing and camping. In his down time he enjoyed riding in the country and listening to music with a cold beer in his hand. Jimmy loved his family and spending time with his friends. He will be missed very much.
