El Paso

Roberto (Bobby) Salcido 88 passed away on Monday, April 18 2022 in El Paso, Texas.  

Roberto is survived by his sons, Michael, Matthew, and Mark Salcido.  His wife, Norma (Lechuga) Salcido, preceded his passing just five months earlier on November 13, 2021.   He is also survived by his three grandchildren, Andrea, Andrew & Dominic, along with five great grandchildren; & his sister, Elia Danley.  Affectionately known as “Grandpacito,” & “Chi-Cho,” Roberto passed away in his home, surrounded by family.  

“Bobby” was a proud graduate of Cathedral High School and Texas Western College now (UTEP).  His favorite pass time was sculpting religious articles and nature scape  oil paintings.  He had a knack and skill for artistic creativity constructing items that included Japanese lanterns and Japanese gardens including, but not limited to, Disney murals, mosaic artwork to actual model scaled ship building.  

Roberto (Bobby) was also a proud veteran of United States Navy during the Korean War.   He also loved to challenge family members with his Spanish tongue twisters.  In  his prime during parties, weddings, etc., many women could not wait to dance with him as he had the ability to grove, twist and cut-a-rug on the dance floor.  Couples would get out of the way to watch him dance.  He lived a full life and was a dedicated Catholic praying to Saints and serving our Blessed Virgin Mother and our Lord Jesus Christ.  May God bless him as he is joined again with his wife, Norma. 

Special thanks to the staff at Elara Caring Hospice especially Ana, Pete (“George”) & Luis for the care, compassion and medical attention they provided for his comfort in the final chapter of his life.  Additionally to John D. Danley ensuring that Norma & Bobby Salcido received their Holy Communion & love each week for the last several years.
