February 22, 1956

Miguel Martinez passed away in his boyhood home of El Potrero. Miguel spent the last ten years of his life sharing his wealth and kindness with the townspeople. After his death, a clipping was found in his wallet describing the words that Miguel Martinez always lived by: “There are rich men that are poor and poor that are rich. A poor rich man is one who does not know how to make use of his riches and accumulates them in such form as if he thinks he is going to live forever.”
