Our dad loved all outdoor activities including fishing, camping, boating and hunting. However, his favorite activity was just getting in the car and going for a ride with his family. Our parents loved their vacations! And for all us who were lucky enough to travel with them, these are memories that will be cherished.
Salvador is survived by his wife, Patricia, sons Michael Ketteler (Marion), Francisco Salazar (Lourdes), Oscar Salvador Salazar (Maria), Servando Salazar (Cecilia), and his daughters Joan Brand (Lance), Cindy Gallegos (Ron), Cathy Johnson (Darryl) and Melissa Uribes (Ben). He is also survived by 14 Grandchildren (Tara, Brittany, Michael, Jourdan, Courtney, Tevin, Jada, Tyrese, Gabe, Olivia, Mia, Carissa, Elizabeth, and Sophia) and 9 Great Grandchildren (Janessa, Audrey, Michael, Liliana, Gretchen, Gunther, Skye, Chase and Billy).
