I was shocked and saddened to hear of my cousin Billy’s passing. I have many great memories of us growing up together. I remember all the fun we had at the Jersey Shore on shared family vacations. All the family gatherings that we were at together over the years, especially those parties at Grandma and Grandpa Martini’s house. I am going to miss you Cuz. Terri and all the Martini family, you have been in my thoughts and prayers.

Talk about living up to your name;
Billy C. Martini you sure did live it.

We miss your music.
We miss your fight.
We miss your charmin’ ways.

I hear myself thinking
“it’s so quiet around here now,
It’s just too quiet…
But not for long.
We’ll play your music—
yes—we’ll sing along.

Lets Raise the volume and raise a toast;
To Love
To Life
To Loving to Fight
To Fighting for Love
To Fighting for your Life
and your Life-long Love

This one is for you Martini;

“You picked a fine time to leave us…
right before ‘The End.’

So let’s not pretend.

You won the Fight.
You had the Right.
Left again
Right again
Left again

So let’s not pretend;
That we’ll all win in the end.
We’ve passed the days
to regret which way;
“Was it a Left, Was it Right?”

It’s the ‘Wins of the Will’
that give us the thrills.
All just turns in the maze,
Just just turns of the days.

Your friend, fan, neighbor and co-mover of objects up and down attic stairs,

Happy Birthday Billy. Your genuine spark of love and sweetness and caring lives on, but so many are left feeling such loss. Sending my condolences and love to Terri and all family and friends who miss you beyond words.

G Gay Frazee on Jan 13, 2022

My condolences to all of "Uncle Billie's" family and friends. I only met Billie a few times but enough to see he was a good soul, a kind person, who loved to laugh. A Stephen King quote always comes to mind when a person passes much too soon.
"I have to remind myself some birds are not meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part if you that knows it was a sin to lock them up does rejoice. Still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty after their gone."
I know he will be missed by many.

I will always love Billy and will miss him. They say your cousins are your first best friends and I really believe that’s true. Thoughts and prayers are with Terri, Jenna and Sara. Love you all.

S Sue Yallum on Jan 7, 2022

I am heartbroken to hear of Billy’s passing. We go back to our late teens/early 20’s when he worked in the Teen department of Yallum’s. He was best friends with my brother, Andy Hutton. We had a lot of good times together. I’m glad I got to reconnect with him when I moved back to town a few years ago. May his memory be a blessing to all who knew him.

J Joyce Ciarlante on Jan 7, 2022

So very sorry for your family. There really are no words. Billy was a kind gentle soul. Thoughts and prayers with all of you at this most difficult time. Joyce Ciarlante and family

C Cindi Jerkowski on Jan 7, 2022

So very sorry to hear about Billy’s passing. I have many fond memories of babysitting him when he was little and at all the many family gatherings. He was a super cute and cool kid and an incredibly warm, personable, charming and smiling man. Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.
