Shortly after moving to Arizona he was hired on as a Pool cleaner with Mike’s Pool Service and Repair, a locally owned company  They taught him the in’s and out’s of Pool Service and Repair.

Don’t let his title fool you, he wears many hats and deals with service, quoting, invoicing and whatever else needs to be done. He is an expert in water chemistry and is always willing to discuss different options with our customers. If you don’t want to talk chemistry you can always talk about tomatoes or chat about chickens with him. Adam spends most his free time in the backyard gardening or running with the chickens.

Martin Albert Huerta, Jr.

June 28, 1988 - June 12, 2018

Martin Albert Huerta, Jr. 29, passed away June 12, 2018.

Preceded in death by Grandmother, Henrietta Munoz; Grandfather, Raul Munoz, Tata Albert Huerta; Uncle, Jose Luis Huerta.

Survived by Wife, Chantal Koestel Huerta; daughter, Madison Carmelita Huerta; parents, Martin A. Huerta Sr. and Mary Ann Huerta; sister, Megan (Ben) Mendiola; godaughter, Emma Henrietta Mendiola; nephew, Gabriel William Mendiola; brother, Michael Antonio Huerta (Kathy Du); In laws, Phillip and Evelyn Koestel, Maria Tellez Koestel, Gabriella Tellez Koestel, Sabrina Tellez Koestel, Scarlett Tellez Koestel and Phillip Emmitt-Tellez Koestel Jr. also many uncles, aunts, cousins and friends.

Martin was born to Martin "Marty" and Mary Ann Huerta on June 28, 1988.

The first week of his life was spent in the hospital and his mother did not get to hold or see him during that week. When his mother, Mary Ann, finally got to see and hold him in her arms, she saw he had red hair. It was at that moment that Mary Ann thought to herself "He is my Wuerito" and the nickname, "Wuero," as many of his family and friends know him, stuck.

Martin was a happy child with a charismatic personality. Being the firstborn child, Martin was a natural born leader and succeeded in everything he set his heart on. As a big brother he took his siblings under his wing and helped guide them through life.

Martin was a four-time All Star baseball player; he graduated from Amphi High School in 2006 and attended the University of Arizona. As a member of the Amphi High School football team, he was also an All State lineman.

Martin had a larger than life personality and lit up every room he entered. He was a happy, friendly, person who always saw the positive side of any situation.
