Salvador Velasco

Salvador Rodriguez Velasco, of El Caracol, Zacatecas, Mexico, passed away on January 19, 2021 in Medford, Oregon.  Salvador was born in El Caracol to Casimiro and Maria Cruz Velasco on June 1, 1951. He was a loving and faithful son, who worked hard taking care of his father’s animals on the ranch, until he came to the United States as a 19 year old. Just as he did in his younger years, he worked hard and for long hours to earn enough money to take care of his father and sisters still living in Mexico as well as the young family he had started in the United States. He had two sons, Tom and Mark, early in his 20s, and was a devoted and loving father, who provided a well kept and secure home for his children. In 1987, he married the love of his life, Sara, who would be his loving companion and soulmate for the rest of his life. In 1991, Sara would give birth to his beloved daughter Maricruz, who was the apple of his eye. Salvador was a kind and gentle man, who loved and was loved by all. He is one of the hardest workers who has ever graced this green earth and he did all for his family, which he loved with a love that was too great for most men. He is so cherished and will be missed by so many, but we are confident that, even now, he lives on in the presence of the Lord Jesus, where he waits to be reunited with his beloved family. Salvador is preceded in death by his parents Casimiro and Maria Cruz, as well as his brothers Raul and Jose, and his sisters Maria, Jesus, Antonia, and Elvira. He is survived by his wife Sara, his sons Tom and Mark, his daughter Maricruz, his grandsons Xander, Roman, and Aziah, his sister Belen and many nieces, nephews, and cousins, all of whom love him so much.  Funeral Services will be held at 11:00 am, this Saturday, January 23, 2021 at Shepherd of the Valley Catholic Church. Burial will follow at 2:30 pm at Siskiyou Memorial Park. Arrangements are by Perl Funeral Home.   Salvador Rodríguez Velasco, de El Caracol, Zacatecas, México, falleció el 19 de enero de 2021 en Medford, Oregon. Salvador nació en El Caracol de Casimiro y Maria Cruz Velasco el 1 de junio de 1951. Era un hijo cariñoso y fiel, que trabajó duro cuidando los animales de su padre en el rancho, hasta que llegó a los Estados Unidos a los 19 años. Tal como lo hizo en su juventud, trabajó duro y durante largas horas para ganar suficiente dinero para cuidar de su padre y sus hermanas que aún vivían en México, así como de la joven familia que había formado en los Estados Unidos. Tuvo dos hijos, Tom y Mark, de veintitantos años, y fue un padre devoto y amoroso, que proporcionó un hogar seguro y bien cuidado para sus hijos. En 1987, se casó con el amor de su vida, Sara, quien sería su amorosa compañera y alma gemela por el resto de su vida. En 1991, Sara dio a luz a su amada hija Maricruz, quien era la niña de sus ojos. Salvador era un hombre amable y gentil, que amaba y era amado por todos. Es uno de los trabajadores más duros que jamás haya honrado esta tierra verde. Él hizo todo por su familia, a la que amaba con un amor que era demasiado grande para la mayoría de los hombres. Continuará siendo muy querido y será extrañado por muchos, pero estamos seguros de que, incluso ahora, vive en la presencia del Señor Jesús, donde espera reunirse con su amada familia. A Salvador le anteceden en la muerte sus padres Casimiro y María Cruz, así como sus hermanos Raúl y José, y sus hermanas María, Jesús, Antonia y Elvira. Le sobreviven su esposa Sara, sus hijos Tom y Mark, su hija Maricruz, sus nietos Xander, Roman y Aziah, su hermana Belén y muchas sobrinas, sobrinos y primos, todos los cuales lo aman tanto. Los servicios funerarios se llevarán a cabo a las 11:00 am, este sábado 23 de enero de 2021 en la Iglesia Católica Shepherd of the Valley. El entierro será a las 2:30 pm en Siskiyou Memorial Park. Los arreglos son por Perl Funeral Home.

Salvador was very good to me while I worked at BCO. He was a very intelligent man who had a lot of knowledge of the valley. He was very giving with that knowledge and I will miss him

I've known Salvador for many years. Such a kind thoughtful man. He loved his kids SO much and showed them every chance he got. I loved his laugh. He was so good to my children and I. I know he is with Jesus and we will all see him again. Love and blessings and many prayers to his family. Linda South.

Salvadore was a kind and generous man, one of the best humans I have ever had the privilege of knowing. He welcomed us to the neighborhood, he and Sarah's home and their family. He will be deeply missed.
