Martin John Disomma - age: 52
(January 18, 1966 to May 12, 2018
On May 12, 2018 around 6:00pm one of the brightest lights on this planet suddenly went dark while riding his Harley on a scenic road near Ukiah, CA. His light continues to shine through his immediate family members, wife Lynde Disomma, son Blake Disomma and partner Chanelle Newcomer, daughter Tristen Disomma, son-in love Jeremy Baer, grandson Paxton Baer, mother Maureen Troller, through his far-extended family, and through his copious friends. Martin was born in Coventry, England. He came to the US as a small child, and he lived in Southern California for a short time. As a pre-teen, Martins family moved to Ukiah and he remained there for the rest of his life. Martin Disomma was a hard working man in all facets of his life and he was dedicated to providing the best life he could for his beloved family. In his career, he was a skilled Operator Engineer for over a decade and worked for the union on many projects that still function in the community today. He was a devoted member of the team and constantly gave his best, while supporting those he worked with to produce the highest quality product he could. In addition to his strong work ethic, Martin had a thirst for life that kept him moving and striving to live each day to its fullest. There was rarely a moment where he was sitting still, but regardless of what he was doing, he could be found with the most luminous of smiles on his face. The joy he radiated permeated every single soul he came into contact with, and those who met him left their encounter changed for the better. In addition to riding his Harley, Martin loved going to Burning Man, and it was after attending his first one that he truly began to explore and express his artistic abilities. This event, touted for radical inclusion, communal effort, civic responsibility, and self-expression, not only provided Martin and Lynde with a platform to experiment with and express their art, but also ignited personal and spiritual journeys that became a way of life outside the venue. At Burning Man Martin and Lynde became part of an ever-lasting family. One of his greatest pleasures was engaging with and loving the people in his life. His capacity for nurturing was abundant, ran deep from his soul, and was expressed often and with immense generosity. He had his first son, Dustin, extremely young, and though their lives traveled separate paths, Martin thought of him often and held him close to his heart. At 21, Martin met the love of his life, Lynde, and from then on his life as we know it began to take shape. He was always up for an adventure, and loved exploring new places while steadfastly encouraging and supporting his wifes passions and artistry. No matter the endeavor, Martin excitedly pushed Lynde to pursue whatever her heart called her to do, and loved experiencing it all with her. In recent years Lynde has developed a love for all things Manatee, and he indulged that obsession until he was finally able to experience it for himself. His calming and loving energy made him an instant Manatee Whisperer, and watching Martin play hopscotch with them was one of the greatest things Lynde ever saw. As a father, Martin was simply impeccable. From the moment Blake came home, Martin always knew what to do to care for him and Lynde. Martin and Blake loved sharing their passion for racing and hot rods. They often bonded over imagined projects and builds, and shared a love for the adrenaline and excitement of so many different motorsports. He passed on his love for fabrication and welding to Blake, along with his committed work ethic. Martin was so incredibly proud of Blake and showed it in his unwavering support of Blakes passions, which meant absolutely everything to Blake. Martins love and admiration for his daughter Tristen was plentiful, and was often expressed through ensuring she was always taken care of, as was his way. They also played disc golf together and bonded with each other while spending time outside working in the garden. In recent years, one of Martins greatest successes was becoming a Papa to his grandson Paxton. This role was one he wholeheartedly adored, and one he assumed with the greatest of love, patience, and joy. If you thought his eyes shone bright before, the light they exuded when he was greeted with a glee-filled PAPA was blinding. Martins generosity was never limited to only family. He was always eager to lend a helping hand and was willing to do anything he could for anyone who needed him. As Lynde says, He was husband to many wives, but he was only married to one. He was resourceful and creative. His ever-working mind often had him configuring up MacGyver-like fixes that were unique and functional, and frequently left his friends shaking their heads with laughter and admiration at the miraculous ideas he imagined into existence. He always worked to share his happiness, and made sure everyone in his presence was enjoying the moment as much as he was. Though we have tried, there really are no words adequate enough to describe the remarkable human being he was, or how much he will be missed. To honor him, continually remember how precious life is and share his love and passion for life by helping each other, and loving each other every single day. If you wish to commemorate his life with family and friends, there will be a celebration held on June 9, 2018 at McCartys in Redwood Valley, CA at 2:00pm.
