OBITUARY

Pedro B. Salas

June 29, 1935May 7, 2019

Pedro Salas, 83, passed away peacefully in his home on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 with his family by his side. He is survived by 4 children, 5 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his wife, Carmen Salas.

Pedro was born on June 29, 1935 in San Pedro, Coahuila, Mexico to parents Jose and Panfila Salas.

Pedro was a humble, hard-working and dedicated family man. He spent his working years in the construction business, pouring concrete. When moving to the United States from Mexico, his family lived in Texas and ultimately settled in Arizona. Pedro enjoyed hot weather and hot beer.

When he wasn’t working, you could find him sitting under a tree or on a porch playing dominoes with his brothers and compadres. He enjoyed the bickering that would happen between them.

Although he was undoubtedly a supportive & doting father to his 4 children, he was known best for being a proud Tata (grandfather). He had a genuine relationship with all of his grandchildren. He taught them how to drive, took them to hang out in the park or just drove them around until they fell asleep.

A visitation will be held at West Resthaven Funeral Home, 6450 W. Northern Ave., Glendale, AZ, on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 from 6pm to 9pm with rosary service at 7:30pm. Mass of Christian Burial will be held in his honor at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, 5614 W. Oragnewood Ave., Glendale, AZ, at 10am on Thursday, May 16, 2019. He will be laid to rest with a private burial at a later time.

I will forever remember Pete. It’s hard for me to even call you by your name because as soon as you’d see me you’d hug and kiss me. I never had a chance to say anything. You always treated me like family. I will always remember your smile and kind heart. I love you 🙏😘
