Domingo was born August 30, 1933 in Galicia, Spain to Mercedes and Narcicio Martinez. In 1969, he traveled to America with his family by his side and established a wonderful life in New Rochelle, NY. He was a Spanish Veteran and for many years, while living in Spain, was chef for the Spanish Navy. Once he moved to New York, he began a career at Burke Rehabilitation Center where he retired back in 2002. He was the kindest and most patient man with a heart of pure gold, never hesitating to help anyone he knew. Selflessness and generosity are two traits he will be remembered by. He was happiest planting in his garden (he really did have the best tomatoes), cooking in his kitchen making caldo and tortia, taking long walks around his neighborhood, spending time in Naples, FL, getting together with his family, watching telenovelas, playing a game of Spanish cards and indulging in a sweet after dinner. Domingo was a hard worker, and took pride in everything he had a hand in.
To say his family and friends will miss him greatly is an understatement. There will always be a piece of hearts that left us the day he went to heaven.
Left to cherish his memory are his children, John (Maria) Varela, Antonio (Renee) Lopez, and Eva Castellanos. His loving niece Marina (Jose) Fernandez, his grandchildren, Jennifer Castellanos, Alexa (Mike) Torres, John R. Varela, Sabrina Lopez and Joseph Lopez. He will be greatly missed by his adoring great- grandchildren Stepahnie, Sofia, Michael, Nicholas and his great- nephew and niece John-Mark and Nataly Fernandez.
Domingo was preceded in death by his wife, Maria Soledad Lopez (2019), his parents Mercedes and Narcicio Martinez, his grand-daughter Natalie Castellanos, brothers Jose, Juan and sisters Pilar and Paca.
Domingo is now at enteral rest with all his loved ones in heaven.
