June 15, 1935 — December 27, 2020

Jimmie L. Salaz passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family in Montrose Colorado on December 27, 2020.

He was born on June 15, 1935 in Montrose Colorado to Celia Salazar and Joe P. Salaz.  He proudly served his country in the Marines. After serving he returned home and worked in the mines, concrete and carpentry.

He met and married his first wife Julia where he had his children Derald, Cheryl, Geraldine, and Jamie. Later in life he met and married his wife Erma. With this second marriage he gained three stepchildren Alberta, Jeff, and Andrew.

He was a very loving and happy man. When you saw him, he always had a big smile on his face. He enjoyed spending time in the outdoors hunting, fishing, and camping.  Nothing brought him more happiness than spending time with family and friends.
