Martin C. Mercado

Martin C. Mercado, Jr., of Coplay passed away April 20 at Lehigh Valley Hospital. He was 57. Martin has been special to every one of us family and friends he has met through his life's journey. He loved to travel. His favorite vacations were to Jamaica, Las Vegas, Pittsburgh and to the shore. He loved going to meet his friends on the Lanta bus for his every Wednesday Sands Casino adventure.

He leaves behind his beloved wife Debbie, they were married 21 years and together 25, his best friend ever. His children Marty, Lucy, Leah, Mike and stepson Gerry; grandchildren Connor, Aliza, Leianna and our baby Logan who did say Pop Pop. He also leaves behind sisters Barbara and Paulette (of 9 siblings); brothers in law Richard and wife Jill, Mark and wife Donna; and many nieces and nephews. 
He is in Heaven with his mom, dad, siblings and meeting his in-laws. He is playing with his favorite buddy he called Sarge.
We all truly miss you and love you, you are finally pain free.
