On the morning of October 08, 2021, Christian Salazar of Burnsville, Minnesota passed away at the age of 32. Christian Salazar was born in 1989 in Los Angeles, CA to Santos Salazar and Rosa Saravia. He had big dreams of changing the world and upon graduating high school as part of the National Honor Society and valedictorian of his class, he joined the National Guard where he learned skills and knowledge that would inspire him to help others. Using that inspiration he then worked at Project Grad as a substitute teacher changing the lives of the youth. Christian would furthermore continue his dream by pursuing a career as a math teacher studying at Metropolitan State University. Christian was a person filled with positive energy who exuded optimism, whose mission was to lead by example. Through his many highs and lows, trials and tribulations Christian was driven to use that as ammunition. Taught by those life experiences he was determined to love life and live life to the fullest. A word to remember him by is positivity because no matter what he was going through he always had a contagious smile. He is survived by his mother Rosa, father Santos and brothers Douglas (Janay), Kevin (Adrian & Harlow) and Alonso Salazar. His sense of humor was incomparable just like his personality. He was one of a kind. Of his many hobbies and interests, Christian’s love of film would always land him in the movie theaters. His comfort zone was the dance floor dancing the night away. Capturing the moment through the lens was his way of expressing his inner artistic side. Turning to a softer more genuine side Christian would dive deep into his emotions writing in nightly journal entries. His passions were filled with making his family ecstatically happy and above all being one with God his creator. Christian had a way to lift you up using a single word…AHUEVO!!!

En la mañana del 8 de octubre de 2021, Christian Salazar de Burnsville, Minnesota falleció a la edad de 32 años. Christian Salazar nació en 1989 en Los Ángeles, CA de Santos Salazar y Rosa Saravia. Tenía grandes sueños de cambiar el mundo y al graduarse de la escuela secundaria como parte de la Sociedad Nacional de Honor y el mejor alumno de su clase, se unió a la Guardia Nacional, donde aprendió habilidades y conocimientos que lo inspirarían a ayudar a los demás. Usando esa inspiración, luego trabajó en Project Grad como maestro suplente cambiando la vida de los jóvenes. Además, Christian continuaría su sueño al seguir una carrera como profesor de matemáticas estudiando en Metropolitan State University. Christian era una persona llena de energía positiva que irradiaba optimismo, cuya misión era predicar con el ejemplo. A través de sus muchos altibajos, pruebas y tribulaciones, Christian se vio impulsado a usar eso como munición.

Su zona de confort era la pista de baile bailando toda la noche. Capturar el momento a través de la lente fue su forma de expresar su lado artístico interior. Pasando a un lado más suave y genuino, Christian se sumergía profundamente en sus emociones escribiendo en las entradas de su diario nocturno. Sus pasiones estaban llenas de hacer feliz a su familia y sobre todo ser uno con Dios su creador. Christian tenía una manera de animarte usando una sola palabra… ¡¡¡AHUEVO !!!

Christian- you always are my closest and best brother I ever have. I am so proud to be your sister! I never forget all the fun times we had together at work and on vacation with Crystal. You were the funniest, goofiest, gregarious and sweetest man I ever knew. You were only friend who remembers and calls my birth name. When I have breakups and bad days, you were there lend a shoulder for me to lean on.
You always made sure everyone kept smiling even when we were dead tired from work.
Whenever I have a joke (sometimes inappropriate ones) pops up and didn’t want to say it, you were the first to react with big laugh and broadcast it out loud.
You always repeated that our supervisor’s infamous question, “Yyyou sssssure?!” “Aaaaaaaare youuuuuuuu sssssssure?!”

Rest In Peace my dear brother. ❤️

My deepest condolences go out to The family. I will miss your contagious smile and your Pat on my shoulder every morning at work when you said “good morning “ I will always remember when we went to Valley Fair twice and you were so excited and so happy. I’ll always remember when we would go to the movies and we snuck in the movie theater food and sodas lol.. I’ll remember when you were falling asleep at the night club I had so much every time we hanged out and when you went to Emily’s birthday and gave her that lovely Frida Khalo cup and that big drawing pad that she loved. So many memories outside and at work like when we used to cover on each other at work. I’ll remember when we looked for new music to play at work and your everyday text messages and Snapchat videos and many memories…I’m going to miss you a lot and more than a friend you were and still will be my brother. Thank you Christian for all the memories we shared together

Christian, fuiste un gran amigo en la niñez, jugamos, reímos, y nos gustaba cantar y bailar. Eso nunca lo olvidaré. Actuábamos como si éramos los de lucha libre los hardy boyz junto con tu hermano. Crecimos y nos fuimos a diferentes caminos, pero aún así cuando nos veíamos nos mirábamos y siempre teníamos el corazón de cuando éramos pequeños. Siempre permanecías con una gran sonrisa, eso admiraba de ti. Y nunca olvidaré el último día que te vi y te escuché. Por siempre estarás en mi corazón. Le doy gracias a Dios por darnos la dicha de crecer juntos. Solo Dios da la paz, fortaleza y consuelo ha toda la familia. Un abrazo como la ultima vez. Nunca lo olvidaré.

Cuando conocí a Christian en un retiro de sanación interior, rápidamente encajamos muy bien y de echo recuerdo haber tenido una conversación muy agradable y fructífera que conmovió mucho mi corazón, al ver su trasparencia pude ver que tenía mucha hambre y sed de Dios. Tal vez fueron pequeños momentos que Dios me permitió compartir con Christian pero fueron suficientes para dejar una huella muy marcada en mi vida, pues realmente tenía mucha dulzura en su corazón y cuando sonreía reflejaba mucha paz. Y aunque pasaron años de no verlo la última vez que lo vi, fue un saludo tan especial como si nunca nos uniéramos dejado de ver sin pensar que esa sería una despedida. Christian ha sido un regalo de Dios para mi vida, y lo que dejo sembrado en mi corazón lo guardaré por siempre, solo puedo decir que ahora tengo un amigo en el cielo. Te veo pronto Christian.

I remember the first time I met you. You were starting to come to my church and was starting to become friends with my mom.
The more time I got to know you, i realized that you were one of the most sweetest guys I ever met.
You had your struggles in the world and so much bad came into your life but you managed to be nice to everyone you met, a trait that is so rare. You were there with me the first time I cut my hair because you knew it was a big insecurity of mine and I wish I thank you for the company at the time.
As much as I wish you didn’t leave this early, I know you’re at peace now.
Any time I’m sad I will imagine your sweet smile and will carry your memory through out my life.
I love you Christian. See you later.
