On Monday, March 22, 2021, Sergio Eric Salazar (Ember), son, father, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend peacefully passed away at the age of 37, surrounded with love by family.
Sergie attended St, Gregory’s Catholic School and International Commerce Secondary High School. He enjoyed listening to music, writing songs and poetry.
He lived life to the fullest. He was a “chatterbox”, and was able to connect with just anyone. He never spoke negatively about anyone. Serg had challenges in life but always managed to have a smile on his face and be utterly grateful for life, family and friends.
He endlessly thought about others that he chose to be an Organ Donor and to give humanity life. His light will continue to shine through the 3 people that he gifted with love.
His bear hugs and laughter will be immensely missed and he will be in our hearts forever. As he would say “love is everything”.
Rest In Peace my beautiful boy.
Sergie is survived by his children Izabela and Gabriele Pete; mother Rose Ann Esparza, and father Steven Anthony Salazar; brothers Steven Anthony, Skyler Francisco Salazar, Isreal Salazar and Robert Salazar; grandmother Velia Esparza; aunts Yvonne Esparza; Olivia (Paul) Salinas; Sylvia (Joe) Martinez; Stella (Vincent) Garcia and Toni Carreon. Uncles Pete Esparza; David (Margaret) Esparza; Robert (Veronica) Esparza, and Micheal Salazar. Many, many cousins and friends.
