Cameron was preceded in death by his baby sister, Angel Martinez; grandfather, Deacon Benjie Lopez, maternal uncle, Morris Lopez, paternal uncle Hector Martinez.  Cameron Martinez was the youngest sibling with the biggest personality.  He has a smile that would light up a room.  If you had the pleasure of being around Cameron he was sure to make you laugh by telling a joke or singing a song.  Cameron enjoyed spending his time in the mountains off-roading in his truck or on his bike.  Cameron loved the game of basketball and it showed in his hustle on the court.  Cameron was selfless in his efforts to put others first – from all of his little cousins, his family members and the whole Espanola community. Cameron touched the lives of so many and it was evident through everyone who wore his Space Jam Cam clothing. He lived his life to the fullest making sure that everyone knew how much he loved them.  Cameron will be greatly missed to all of those that knew and love him.  Fly high Space Jam Cam.
