August 13, 1960 ~ January 18, 2022
Marty Pereira, age 61, of Hilmar, California went to be with his Lord January 18, 2022.
Marty was born on August 13, 1960, in Merced, California to Manuel and Aida Pereira, joining his brothers John, Raymond, Pete, and Manuel.

Marty will be remembered as a benevolent and generous brother, uncle, and friend. Loyal and dependable, he took life and responsibility seriously. He was an honest, orderly, strong, and hard-working man who placed God and family first. He was frequently in the Bible and devoted to Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. He will be dearly missed.
He liked gardening, building, and riding motorcycles. He enjoyed a variety of sports and nearly all things automotive. But most of all he loved fishing.

Well-written obituary that truly honors Marty. His life was cut short much too soon. I have always prayed for Marty to have peace of heart. Now he knows the truth for which he was always searching. I pray that his family will find comfort in good memories and remember that he is still living, just in another realm. We have to trust that God’s plan is always perfect, even when we don’t understand it yet. I am grateful for the time I had to get to know Marty. We had a lot of great conversations. He was a thinker. I am sorry that I won’t be able to attend the funeral, but I will be there in spirit. My thoughts and prayers are with Marty’s family during this difficult time.
