Nick Luca Martines, 59

Nick Luca Martines born April 26,1961 of Columbia, Ky. Passed away after a long, hard 20+ year fight and battle with cancer. He died July 28th 2020 at home surrounded by his best friend of 27 years, Tracey Hansen and loved ones Nick Sox (son) Stephanie Sox (niece) and  his “girls” Elly and Katie. He was so loved by his family and will forever leave his mark on their lives and heart.

Nick was a friend to everyone and made friends everywhere he went. He loved scuba diving, family BBQ’s, his garden, airstreaming with the kids, enjoying new foods and visiting new places. He was also a wonderful photographer and liked to photograph Detroit Michigan.

He always said he wanted to leave a small carbon footprint, but in our hearts he left the biggest imprint. Without the joy of his smile and the sound of his laughter and watching him enjoy and love on all the babies, life will be sadly quiet.

Every year he would say he was going to fight for another year, another birthday for his grandchild Charlie and grand niece Talia. He will always be the strongest man we will ever know and will forever sing You and the girls song “ I’m on top of the world “

We love and miss you PAPA!

No services are arranged at this time, but please call 270-585-7994 if you would like to be apart of Nick’s celebration of life.
