Obituary Image

Raul G Martin, 81, a long time resident of Sonoma, Ca (43 years) passed away peacefully on August 12, 2018. The owner of Martin Vineyards and a real estate investor, Raul delved into numerous ventures including working and ownership in Sunset Scavengers of San Francisco, Restaurateur, the cattle business and growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay varietals in the Carneros region. Raul enjoyed people; he was such a friendly, generous and compassionate man. He was born in the small town of Mezcala in Jalisco, Mexico. He came from humble beginnings and made a beautiful life for himself and his family 65 years ago in California. He is known for his humor, love of life, green thumb and hosting immense family gatherings--being the patriarch of our family. Raul was lucky, even at the casinos. His motto in life was no fear and get it done.

He is preceded in death by his parents Pomposo and Daria Martin and his wife of 48 years, Phyllis Lorraine Martin. He is survived by his spouse, Elida Martin; by 6 of his 13 siblings Anita Gonzalez, Guadalupe Perez, Ruben Martinez, Luis Martin, Salvador Martin and Jesus Martin; his children David Martin, Teresa Bozzetto, Jeffrey Martin, Roxana Martin and Danielle Martin; his grandchildren Lauren, Jenna, Kyle, Joshua, Kayla, Rolando, Angel, Roselynda, Andrew and Francesca.
