Martin Maldonado

Martin was a big man with a heart of gold who touched many people. He always said the greatest gift he ever had was his two daughters, Monica and Christina, thanks to his ex-wife Sue. Through them he had his grandson Ayden and the twins Cody and Aleah. His whole world revolved around them and his best friend Jimmy D. Martin also wrote beautiful poetry. He loved Star Trek, old movies, and “Chopped.” He loved his job as a chef at CRMS and the exceptional young men and women who attended there. In high school and college, he was a great athlete. He remained an avid fan of football and the Oakland Raiders. He will be greatly missed. A memorial will be held from 11 to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 13th at the CRMS Barn with a follow-up from 2 to 5 p.m. at Two Rivers Cafe in Basalt.
