Tom Martinez dies at 66

February 23, 2012

Divided Fans, I have some unfortunate news.  This past Tuesday, on his 66th birthday, Tom Martinez died from an apparent heart attack while undergoing dialysis.

I had the honor of interviewing Tom and it was an experience I will never forget, but if I had to pick one bit, one piece of knowledge or wisdom to hold on to, one thing to remember from Tom, it would be to always keep fighting, to never give up.  This has been the lesson of the year, from Tom Martinez, to Tim Tebow, to Jeremy Lin, to both the Giants and the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI, each one has taught us the importance of never giving up.  You may not always win but comfort can be found in knowing that you gave it your best and fought til the end.

Tom Martinez was a fighter and he will be missed.  My thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends.
