Obituary for Martin Rivera Robles (November 20, 1961 – February 7, 2022)

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10”

Martin Rivera Robles was the youngest born to the late Jose Rivera and Manuela Robles Ortiz, in San Juan, Puerto Rico on November 20, 1961.  He moved to Washington, DC during the 80’s in search for better opportunities.  Martin eventually found a position as a nursing assistant, at the Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Medical Center. He worked there for most of his adult life, and until he went on disability. While at the Medical Center, he did what he knew best – being the helping and humanitarian person he has always been with everyone who crossed path with him.

Martin was raised Catholic and attended Mass with the family since he was little. He loved to play kids games, he studied and practice martial arts while young, he loved going to the beach, loved the music and especially enjoyed his Salsa music and was a dancer at heart.  He was a loving son to his parents, and always there for them. He always followed the guidance of his three older siblings and was loved dearly by each of them.


Martin was an avid sports fan. His favorite sport was baseball and his favorite team was the Washington Nationals. Martin was also a loyal Washington Redskins fan or whatever they want to call themselves now ������.

Martin was long known as a shining example of a kind man, for his positive outlook on life, trustworthy, noble, a loyal and unconditional friend, smooth talker, his sense of humor, his patience, for his ability to engage with people and his willingness to help anyone and everyone who came in his path.  He was best friend of many and enriched lives just by being present.

Martin is survived by his mother Manuela Robles Ortiz, his brothers Luis Robles and Jose Robles, and his sister Rosa Robles. He is preceded in death by his father Jose Rivera.

Obituario de Martin Rivera Robles (20 de Noviembre de 1961 - 8 de Febrero de 2022)

“No tengas miedo pues yo estoy contigo; no temas pues yo soy tu Dios. Yo te doy fuerzas, yo te ayudo, yo te sostengo con mi mano victoriosa. Isaías 41:10”

Martín Rivera Robles fue el hijo menor de José Rivera (fallecido) y Manuela Robles Ortiz, y nacio en San Juan, Puerto Rico el 20 de noviembre de 1961. Se mudó a Washington, DC durante la década de los 80 en busca de mejores oportunidades. Martin finalmente encontró un puesto como asistente de enfermería en el Centro Médico Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove. Trabajó allí durante la mayor parte de su vida adulta, y hasta fue dishabilitado. Mientras estuvo en el Centro Médico, hizo lo que mejor sabía: ser la persona solidaria y humanitaria que siempre ha sido con todos los que se cruzaron en su camino.

Martin fue criado como católico y asistía a misa con la familia desde que era pequeño. Le encantaba jugar juegos de niños, estudió y practicó artes marciales cuando era joven, le encantaba ir a la playa, le encantaba la música y especialmente disfrutaba de su música Salsa y era un bailarín de corazón. Fue un hijo amoroso para sus padres, y siempre estuvo ahí para ellos. Siempre guardo respeto y se dejo guiar de sus tres hermanos mayores, y cada uno de ellos lo querian mucho.

Martín era un ávido fanático de los deportes. Su deporte favorito era el béisbol y su equipo favorito los Nacionales de Washington. Martin también era un fanático leal de los Washington Redskins o como quieran llamarse ahora ������.

Martin lo conocimos durante mucho tiempo como un brillante ejemplo de un hombre amable, por su perspectiva positiva de la vida, un ser noble, un amigo leal e incondicional, con un gran sentido del humor, su paciencia, y su habilidad para relacionarse con las personas y su disposición a ayudar a cualquiera y todos los que se cruzaron en su camino. Fue el mejor amigo de muchos y enriqueció vidas con solo estar presente.

A Martin le sobreviven su madre Manuela Robles Ortiz, sus hermanos Luis Robles y Jose Robles, y su hermana Rosa Robles. Le precedio en la muerte su padre José Rivera.
