Barry A. Martoia (Al), age 70, passed away on June 7, 2020 in his Phoenix home with his loving wife Sue by his side. After graduating from Riverside High School in Dearborn Heights, MI, Al proudly served in the army during the Vietnam War. He was decorated for his service and honorably discharged. Al began a career in office equipment sales that eventually led to opening his own business, which he operated until his retirement. Al loved to travel and was always looking for new adventures. He and Sue spent their 37 years of marriage frequently relocating to new cities across the country with their dogs. However, Las Vegas remained his favorite vacation spot. In each new city, Al was quick to meet the neighbors, make new friends and find the popular local hangouts. Al will be remembered for his generous loving heart and kind spirit. He was dedicated to his family and friends and will be deeply missed by all who knew him. Rest in peace Al knowing that you are greatly loved. He was preceded in death by his father Charles and is survived by his wife Sue; mother Yvonne; brothers Dennis (Barbara), Chuck (Diane), Robert (Lynn), Jeffrey (Karen); sisters Yvonne Hughes (Tom), Sandra Henderson (Bruce); brother-in-law Kevin Summers (Kathy); and many loving nieces, nephews, extended family, and cherished friends.
Al's ashes will be laid to rest and a celebration of life will take place at a later date.
