Emillio Santiago Salazar
7/13/1992 - 1/9/2021
"Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise." Luke 23:43
Our beloved son, brother, uncle and friend was tragically taken from us at the young age of 28 on January 9, 2021. He was born on July 13, 1992 as a triplet with his two sisters Ericka and Dasia Salazar in Las Vegas, Nevada to Diana Cruz and Duaine Salazar. He grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Emillio loves his family with all his heart. His passion is to share his faith and bring people closer to Jesus Christ. No matter who they were he judged no one! Emillio took pride in his trade at building acoustical ceilings and assisted in creating the Las Vegas Raiders stadium, but was a Denver Broncos fan at heart.
Survived by his mother Diana Cruz; father Duaine (Rina) Salazar; triplets Ericka and Dasia Salazar; siblings Josh Salazar, Aundrea Steed, Kylie Hunt, Isaac Ortega, Isaiah Salazar, Nathan Salazar, Amiya Salazar, Antonio Salazar; partner and love of his life Clarissa; grandmother Dorothy Salazar; special nephew Vincent Lopez; and numerous family and friends.
Preceded in death by his grandparents Joe D and Elsa Cruz and grandfather Alexander Salazar; uncles and aunts Ilene Cruz and Sammy, Jimmy, Patricia, Arlene and Martha Gurule.
A visitation will be held on Thursday, January 14th from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 E. Dimple Dell Rd. (10600 S.), Sandy. Funeral services will be held on Friday, January 15th with a visitation starting at 10:00 AM for one hour followed by services also at Larkin Sunset Gardens.
