Oct. 26, 1922 — Oct. 6, 2012

On Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012, Antonio (Tony) Madrid Martin of Sonora gently passed away at his home in the arms of his daughter and family. Tony was preceded in death by his wife of 53 years, Angie; daughter, Esther Stone; parents, Frank and Amalia Martin; brother, Joe Martin; and sister, Madeline Jimenez. He is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Angelina and Juan Vasquez of Sonora; son-in-law, Andy Stone of Sacramento; grandson, AJ Stone of Sacramento; granddaughters, Sara Stone of Sacramento, Ashley Long of San Luis Obispo, and Rachel Long of Sonora; great-granddaughters, Ashley Hayes-Stone of Sacramento and Genevieve Williams of Sacramento; brother and sister-in-law, Frank and Ramona Martin of Winters; and sister-in-law, Anna Martin of Woodland.

Tony spent a few short months living in Sonora and was a longtime Winters resident where he grew up, farmed, owned ranches, and served the city government as a council member and mayor. He also spent many years living in Fairfield and Vacaville and worked for Valley View Packing Co. in the Suisun Valley as a fruit buyer and plant manager. His passion was his family and if it was in his power to do anything for his loved ones, that was always a priority. Tony served in the United States Army during World War II in Europe and participated in the Battle of the Bulge. In his later years he became known as a grand story-teller and a fan of the works of Jane Austen. This wonderful and loving man will be incredibly missed by many.

A catholic mass will be celebrated for Tony on Friday, October 12, 2012, at 10:00 a.m. at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, 301 Main Street, Winters, Calif., (530) 795-2230 with burial to follow at the Winters Cemetery. A reception will be held after the burial at St. Anthony’s Catholic Center, 511 Main Street, Winters, Calif. In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Antonio Madrid Martin’s name to The Hospice of the Sierra, 20100 Cedar Road North, Sonora, CA 95370, (209) 536-5685. Funeral arrangements handled by Terzich and Wilson Funeral Home of Sonora.

    I'm very sorry to read of Tony's passing. I lived in Suisun Valley from 1958 thru 1989, I met Tony when he went to work for Valley View. Our family had orchards next to Valley View plant. I worked for Suisun Valley Fruit Growers and saw Tony often. He was a very kind and gentle man, he will be missed by all who new him. Sincerely Bill Crabtree and family
