Martins was a healthy and active man who lived a long and fulfilling life. He never drank or smoked, and he enjoyed eating a variety of foods in moderation. He was also a great storyteller, and he loved sharing his memories of life on Madeira with others. In March 2022, he celebrated his 110th birthday, making him the first supercentenarian from Madeira. At the time, he was still able to walk with a walker and enjoyed singing fado music.
