Obituary of Martin M. Molina

Martin Michael “Marty” Molina, 76, of Latrobe, passed away Tuesday, November 17, 2020 at his home surrounded by his family after a courageous battle with COPD and cancer. He was born December 21, 1943 in Latrobe, the son of the late Dominic and Lucy (Ciocco) Molina. Marty is survived by his wife of 53 years Kathleen Ann (Hughes) Molina of Latrobe, his daughter Tara Iagnemma and her husband Michael of Charlotte North Carolina, his son Michael Molina and his wife Stacie of Latrobe and four grandchildren Zachary Iagnemma, Michael Molina, Olivia Iagnemma and Elizabeth Iagnemma. He is also survived by his dear cousin Maryann Urban and her husband David of Tennessee. Due to Marty’s great love of cars, he made a career of floor plan lending for the automobile industry starting with Mellon Bank and retiring as Vice President of Lending at First Commonwealth Bank. Marty also gave back to his community serving as a member and former chairman of the Latrobe Parking Authority. For years, Marty was an avid golfer and had a great love for the game. Over the years he was a member of the Latrobe Elks, Ligonier Country Club and Latrobe Country Club. He thoroughly enjoyed “Marty’s porch” with all of his wonderful friends and neighbors. In his later years, he enjoyed watching the success of his son’s restaurant, the Touchdown Club… and the food too! Anyone who knew Marty knew his greatest talent was playing the piano. He had a God given gift that he loved to share. This otherwise shy man won the spotlight every time he tickled the ivories. He loved watching his four grandchildren dance around to the music he so proudly played. Marty’s family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to his physicians that have helped him over the years. Especially Dr. Richard F. Kucera, Dr. Matthew G. Sulecki and Dr. David S. Richards. Friends will be received Friday, Nov. 20th from 4 until 7 PM in the Hartman-Graziano Funeral Home, Inc., 1500 Ligonier St. Latrobe.
