Hector Martinez Niño (1972-2022)

It is with a heavy heart we announce that Hector Martinez Niño, age 49, was suddenly taken from us on February 24th, 2022 after an unexpected battle with thyroid cancer. He was born on April 24th, 1972 to parents Alberto and Ernestina Niño. He was born in Michoacán, Mexico, and was the oldest of four sons.
He attended Fillmore High School and graduated in 1991. He was a Sheet Metal Leadsman at MW Saussé and Co Inc/VIBREX in Valencia, CA from 2003 until his passing. He was also a Shop Steward for Local 170 Union. He was very respected and dedicated to his trade. He was a leader and fighter for his fellow employees. He was the true definition of someone who loved their job. Words cannot express the passion and pride he had for his job. He loved everyone whom he worked with.
Hector’s interests included spending quality time with family and friends, barbecuing, dancing, traveling, golfing, and serving the Lord. He loved watching his Dallas Cowboys and LA Dodgers play. In his last few years, he grew strong in his faith and relationship with the Lord. He attended church at Canyon Hills Assembly of God as often as he could. His faith and love for God helped him during the hardest of times before his passing.
Everyone who knew him, knew that family was very important to him. He was an amazing husband, wonderful father/stepfather, loving grandfather and loyal brother. He had a great sense of humor, huge heart and selfless until the end.
Hector is survived by his wife Victoria Ramos Niño, daughters Krystal, Ashley and Nataly Niño, stepdaughters Angelina & (Anthony) Arambula and Angelica Juarez, granddaughters Skylar Slack, Sunyia and Saige Person, brothers Alberto, Oscar & (Elvia), and Tony Niño, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family and friends that held a special place in his heart.
He is greeted in heaven by his father, beautiful mother that passed twelve days before him, as well as numerous loved ones.
His loved ones are completely heartbroken and devastated by this sudden loss. Hector will remain in our hearts forever.
Hector’s spouse would like to thank all family, friends and church family for the continued prayers and support.
