My name is Rayna Martens and Larry has been my love and life for 18 years. He was my movie buddy, my best friend, my traveling companion, my Most Significant Other and eventually my Husband. Larry married me on a beautiful Spring day in May, for now and forever. Larry always said Family was most important to him. He told all of us last Christmas, “I don’t have a bunch of separate families; I have one very big family.”

In addition to his biological children; Alex (Tiffani) Martens of Twin Falls, Erica and Allison Martens of Twin Falls, Larry loved and adopted as his own Kayla Gepner (Michael Callen) of Redding , CA, Jerika (Joey) Touchette of Twin Falls and Lauren Gepner of Twin Falls. He was the Best Grampa to Marcus and Cyrus Callen of Redding, CA, along with Aden and Ilaria Touchette of Twin Falls, Idaho. Larry will also be missed by his mother, Judy Martens of Twin Falls, siblings Keith Martens of Nevada, Kristi Martens of Twin Falls, Bruce Martens of Minnesota, Barry (Jody) Martens of Wisconsin, Mike (Diane) Martens of California along with niece Madison and nephew Bobby. Grieving for Larry will also be his step-mother Dorothy Martens of Pelican Rapids Minnesota as well as numerous Cousins such as Peg Carbone, Brian and Marsha Miller, Ron Gabrielson and families. Larry made friends and family wherever he went, please forgive me for not naming them all as they are too numerous to mention here.

Larry held a special place in his heart for his riding buddies, Cole Johnson and Terry and Sue Greene. Thank you for always being there for us, to help make adventures and funny stories that will be shared forever. To Larry’s medical family; he cared about you all. Special shout out to Bekah Bishop and Cassi Whitaker who took such good care of him both in the office and at our home once the cancer took over our lives. I personally want to thank Dr. Warren Dopson for saving Larry’s life in so many ways, as well as being a good friend to him. Dr. Dan Preucil, and Visions Hospice, thank you for supporting Larry’s choices throughout his cancer journey. I want to thank you, the person reading about Larry Martens. You knew him; he has touched your life, made you laugh, and healed your soul. You knew him, and he always knew you.
