He was born May 9, 1968 in Rio Grande, Zac, Mexico.
His family and grandchildren were his everything and he loved nothing more than spending time with them. Whether it was making Tik Toks with Sydney, watching Julian play sports to just being the best grandpa he could be. Not only was he the best father, but best friend to his two daughters. When he wasn’t talking about his love for his kids, he was boasting his love for his wife. He is the type of man that would give his shirt off his back.
The world lost an amazing man; he touched the lives of so many people there is no doubt he is in Heaven watching over us. He just enjoyed living life to the fullest. He was always so strong and bold in everything he did. Everyone was drawn to his captivating spirit making friends wherever God guided his footsteps. He was a giver, always looking to help someone less fortunate than him. He was a real talker and was always looking to get a laugh out of everyone. He loved talking about his many endeavors and childhood stories.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Virginia Morales and two brothers, Faustino Salazar and Raul Salazar.
Survivors include his wife Sanjuana Salazar; his daughters Wendy Salazar and Jackie Salazar; grandchildren Sydney, Julian, Megan, Aubree and Hannah; four brothers; six sisters; and his father, Ursolo Salazar.
