NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) — With a fitted Yankee cap and sunglasses on, a deceased Puerto Rican poker player had his last hand at a funeral home.

The embalmed corpse of Henry Rosario Martinez, 31, was seated at a table with his family by his side.

The unusual set-up was requested by the family for Martinez’s wake.

“His father asked us if we could do this. We fulfilled their wishes,” said the director at the Eternal Light Funeral Home in Barceloneta. 

Martinez reportedly died unexpectedly on Jan. 19.
