Biography

      “Anything is possible.” That is what Albert Salinas believed about life. He was a creative man, a perpetual inventor, who seemed to be able to find a solution for any difficulty confronting him. He had faith in his ability to find those solutions. Albert thoroughly enjoyed understanding how things worked. He possessed an inquisitive, confident, and rational nature matched with a versatile and agile mind. Albert was a person who believed that he could achieve whatever he set out to do.

       He is survived by son Adolph Salinas’s, wife Patricia Salinas and daughter’s Sandra Salinas and Christi Hardison; his son Ernest M. Salinas; his daughter Lisa Rodriguez husband Frank Rodriguez, their daughter Mia Vasquez and son Joel Sanchez III; his daughter Teresa Salinas and son’s Christopher Sanchez, Jeremy Lockwood and daughter Ashlee Lopez. His grandson Larry Salinas; Albert also leaves behind siblings: Rudy Salinas, Anna Marie Rodriguez, Raymond Salinas and Richard Salinas. Services were held at Cashner Funeral Home, Conroe, Texas. Albert was laid to rest in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery, Montgomery, Texas.

      During his lifetime, nothing appeared impossible to Albert. He met the words “it can’t be done” with the enthusiastic challenge of a “wanna bet” attitude. Albert was able to recognize the possibilities a new idea held, even when those around him could not. For Albert, the traditional way of doing things fell short of his expectations, especially if there were original and untested methods for handling a challenge. For Albert Salinas, the fun of living his life could be found in the challenge.
