Gregory Earl Martinez
July 25, 1957 – March 2, 2020
Greg was born and raised in Binghamton / Windsor, NY. After accepting a transfer in 2005 with LexisNexis, his employer of almost 30 years, he settled into being a southern guy in Virginia. Greg enjoyed playing and watching sports – baseball, football, horse racing, golf and watching his grandsons play lacrosse and his girls (daughters, nieces, & granddaughters) cheer. His dedication to the NY Yankees and NY Giants gave him a lifetime of great joy and frustration. For the past 20 years Greg was passionate about painting and the study of creating art. Far above and beyond anything else, Greg loved spending time with his family, especially at the kid’s academic and sporting events, celebrating traditions like Sunday drives that ended with ice cream or donuts, attending the spring maple festival, fall pumpkin farm tours, Christmas tree lighting, “choice night,” early morning trips to see the sunrise at VA Beach, telling the grands he wanted to go to Sears and then have booger soup for lunch.
Condolences may be expressed to the Martinez family on Thursday, April 9, 2020 from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m. at the Town of Binghamton Community Center; 1905 Coleman Road, Binghamton, NY. Greg is finally at rest, we ask that you hold him close, as we do, forever in your heart, mind, and spirit. <3 10

My deepest sympathy to you and your family in this hardest of times.
My deepest sympathy to Greg’s family and friends. I worked in the Lexis C’ville office with Greg for many years and loved chatting with him about whatever artwork he was displaying in his office space. I was so amazed at his ability and gifts creating beautiful paintings. Never did I see him cross with anyone and he was always helpful when asked for help.
Greg, you were a joy to work with, always helpful and always kind. You will be missed.
A wonderful and well read life Greg! Seems like only yesterday we started at the DC and then years later seeing you once in the C-ville office was a great treat. The man of a kind heart, happy personality and many shorts for all seasons. Play a round of golf for all of us until we meet again my friend.
