Obituary Francisco Martins, born December 10, 1921, a long time resident of Kent Heights, East Providence passed away peacefully Saturday morning at the full grown age of 98. Francisco spent his childhood in the hilly farmlands of Relva, Vila de Rei, Portugal. There he met his wife of 72 years, Maria Mendes Martins. He emigrated to the USA after WWII. He worked with his hands and was admired for his strength and attention to detail. In construction, steel mills, landscaping or home improvement, Francisco “Frank” could do it all. He retired from Brown University as a groundskeeper at the age of 69. He spent retirement in his well-tended, bountiful garden with his grandchildren. He loved his family and frequently reminded them “There is no one closer than family. Treat them right”. He was known for his gentle strength, his wisdom, and strong faith, a man of true virtue. He is survived by his wife, Maria; his children, Edward Martins (wife Diane Cocozza Martins) and Susan Martins-Phipps (husband Ron Phipps); his five grandchildren, Matthew Phipps, Ian Phipps, Caite Phipps Diaw, Jeremy Martins, and Jonah Martins, their spouses and twelve great grandchildren. He will be deeply missed, but he lives on in their hearts. His funeral with burial at Gate of Heaven Cemetery will be private.
