 Christian George Martinisi
December 23, 2007 – August 28, 2014

Christian Martinisi entered into the gates of heaven August 28, 2014. Christian had the biggest heart and was full of spunk. His energy was contagious and his adorable smile lit up any room he entered. He was honest, kind and always thought of others. He was a daredevil and adventurous. This summer he rode his first roller coaster at Lego Land and went on the half pike at Splashdown.

Christian loved his family so much and enjoyed when the whole family was together. He would always say how thankful he was for them and the time they spent together. Christian was an introspective child and could read people very well, he loved to play practical jokes and laugh. He loved parties and being around others. He loved to snuggle and hug his mom, play basketball, help his dad build things and watch TV. Christian was very protective of his family, especially his younger brothers who he loved to build forts with. He loved bowling with Papa, shopping with Grams, and picking grapes and figs in the garden with Nonna and Nonno. Christian enjoyed visiting and spending time in Florida with his Mamie, uncle and cousin. He was so proud when his mom helped in his classroom and with his soccer team.

Christian was looking forward to starting First Grade with his friends at Willow Avenue Elementary School. He had a thirst for knowledge and a love for learning. He adored all of his friends. He loved music and dancing, and showed how brave he was dancing in the talent show. He was persistent and determined and extremely proud when he accomplished something, especially when he learned to read. His favorite book was Diary of a Wimpy Kid. He loved Puma, Under Armour and Gap clothing, legos and the color red.

Christian is survived by his parents Anthony and Cara Martinisi, younger brothers Anthony and Nicky, grandparents George and Theresa Martinisi, and Joseph and Susan Tisi, godmother Mamie and Uncle Michael Dehney, Cousin Isabella Dehney, Great Grandma Tisi, godfather Kurt Hahn and many other aunts, uncles and cousins.
