On Sept. 12, 2019, Salvador Aboytes lost his battle with lung cancer. Sal was born on May 5, 1957.
He is survived by his wife of 39 years, Maria, his son Salvador and daughter Lizette.
Salvador worked alongside his best friend Jeff Menelli as a foreman for Menelli Tile for over 25 years. Salvador was a hardworking man, who always put his family first. He always helped those in need without a second thought and never expecting anything in return.
He had many nieces and nephews whom he loved like his own children. He will always be remembered for his sense of humor, stubbornness, and most of all his loving heart. He lived out his last days surrounded by family and friends, and watching his beloved Cowboys.
Thank you to all the nurses, staff, and doctors at Cottage Hospital, especially the Compton 1 unit. Your amazing care, compassion and devotion toward Salvador will always be remembered by his family.
A rosary will take place at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 18, at McDermott Crockett Mortuary, 2020 Chapala St. Memorial services will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 19, at Our Lady of Sorrows Church, 21 E. Sola St.
A Gofundme account has been setup under Salvador Aboytes to help the family offset medical bills and funeral arrangements.
