Gee what can I say: I got to him, more like a brother both at Tech & EPHS.
He was my friend and when I needed him for 😥 sad/good times. 😃 he was there for me.

My prayers for the family. Always SALLY.

My Sincere Condolences to Benny Salcido's Family,
I'm a fellow EPHS '70 classmate, Track Captain Teammate, and friend. Looking back to the high school days with Benny, track days come to mind. He ran the 440, 880, and anchored the mile relay. The serious look he had in the classroom was the same on the track field. He was a joyful person to be with. He was involved in ROTC ( wore the uniform proudly), EPHS Band, and Track.
His presence will be forever in your family hearts. You will be sharing his spirit with others. Keep his spirit alive among you & enjoy the smiles, the laughter, & the tears.
I, as his friend, I will.
Regards,
Raul Gonzalez

Hey, Benny, may you rest in peace. You were a talented passionate musician and had a great sense of humor. You brought laughter to our lives. I got to see you in recent years. I am lucky for that. Thank you, Ben.

To Grace and the Salcido family, my deepest condolences.

So sorry for your loss. Benny was so great and full of life. He reminds me of the times that are implanted in my heart. Memories of young bones - no creaks, high voices - no squeaks, loud laughter - no snorts, and enjoyment of our loved ones - no regrets - never regrets. Your loss is great but Benny's life would have been so sad without you. May God Give you strength and His Love help you through this time. Luci

I will miss Benny , my friend. I enjoyed seeing his smile every time I saw him. Even the last time we spoke on the phone he was attempting to be cheerful. Once he didn’t answer I knew he was too sick. He’s now resting from the dreadful cough he suffered. In my mind I picture him standing before the Lord and singing praises to Him as he directs his own orchestra. My condolences to the family. He was very aware of the wonderful care you gave him-loved his home.

Benny was such a sweet person. I remember as a kid how much he loved to sing. He had a great sense of humor. Always a fun uncle. He will be missed!

Today during our worship devotional I lit up a candle in memory of dear Benny and we lifted a prayer of thanksgiving for his life and the privilege of having known him and sharing our love of music. Benny was a talented musician and a joy to be around. I am very saddened by his departure and Conrado and i will miss him. We send our condolences to his family, and pray God's love and peace will embrace them and give them peace.

Salcido Familia,

Debbie and I are saddened to hear the news of Benny's passing, and we will have all of you in our thoughts and prayers during this time of grief and sadness.

I will always remember the first time I met the smiling Benny at the late and best friend Pablo Salcido's parents home many, many years ago. I could hear him singing in the back of the house.

Through Pablo and Cheryl, I met most of the Salcido familia, and what a joy it has been for us. A TRUE LOVING FAMILY! May that love and kinship sustain you and continue to bless you always.

Abrazos y Paz
