Debbie, It was so shocking and sad to hear of Sal's passing.  My thoughts have been with you and your family.  It is always hard to find the right words to say.  Your life will certainly never be the same, but you are a strong woman and have the strength to figure out what your "life after Sal" will be and I promise you he is with you every step of the way. Hang in there and know all of us at BAE are here for you!

Friends and family are mourning the passing of one of the most loved and respected men you could ever hope to meet, Salvador Sandoval. Sal passed suddenly on the morning of February 5, 2019. He leaves behind his wife of 38 1/2 years, Deborah Sandoval, his loving children; Shane and Victoria. Also, living with his memory are his beautiful grandchildren; Gavin, Aiden, Saydee, Gauge and Valor. Sal is survived by 4 brothers, 2 sisters, an aunt and uncle living all across Texas and Mexico. He was preceded in death by his grandparents who raised him from infancy as their own son. A Celebration of Life will be scheduled at a later date, which is what Sal wanted. He lived a very full life, was an extremely happy man, and dearly loved each and everyone of his family. He recently reconnected with his aunt Hortencia, who he considered to be "his sister". Thus, the listing of 2 sisters above as he would want. We will miss you every single day, until we meet again. My love be with you always, as there will never be another you.

his Life

38 WONDERFUL YEARS TOGETHER!

Our life's journey began 38 years ago November 2000, and was just as real, exciting and loving today as when we first met.  We were married for three years before being blessed with our firstborn, Shane Aguillon Sandoval.  We moved to the country out near Niederwald soon after, so that our family could be raised outside the city.  Victoria Alena Sandoval followed Shane two years, one month and one week later.  Sal was intent on having the children raised with a love and understanding of animals and nature.  At one time, we raised 3 horses, 2 donkeys, 35 Barbado sheep, 40 Boar goats, and miscellaneous rabbits, ducks and chickens.  He loved every minute of it, and with the exception of the chickens, everyone had a name.  

With the exception of our working hours/days, we spent every moment with one another.  We had so much in common, that the things we didn't were inconsequential.  He was my support and had my back no matter what.  He encouraged me to go back to school so we could take better care of our animals, so I pursued a certification in animal health care.  He was so proud that he immediately hung my diploma on the wall.  Sal was my partner, my love, my life and my rock.  It's hard to realize I won't hear his voice, his laugh and his talking to his "stupid" cell phone.  However, there is a special place in my heart where he now resides, and I feel him there every waking moment.

There are no words to describe the hurt I feel for this loss. My brother and I shared a lot of adventures together when we were young. I remember walking to our grandparents house and walking through a cemetery where we would pick up this cross that fell all the time. Every single time we walked through there it was knocked over. The same one! 

There was another time on our same walk to our grandparents that we encountered a German Shepard. It never barked at us and it seemed friendly and all of a sudden it bit Chava in the calf and we had to throw rocks at it to let him go! 

Another memory I have of my older brother is when he taught me to fight. He’d make me fight with the kids from the neighborhood.

There was a time that we were going to one of his base ball games and he was showing off because he was the pitcher. He saw a bird on a tree and told me... I can kill that bird with one hit. I didn’t believe him and sure enough he threw the rock right at the bird and hit it.

There was a time when my brother saved my life. I’ll never forget that. My brother was a great swimmer. We would go swimming at a canal and he could hold his breath under water forever! In this occasion I was watching how he’d stay under water and as I was watching him I slipped and fell in and he saw me fall in for a split second. The current was so strong that I could not swim back. Chava dove in without hesitation and he grabbed me and put me on his shoulders. The current was up to my chest and I was holding on to Chavas head that was under water and he held his breath that entire time until he got me to the edge. 

I remember when we would stayed at my grandparents we’d sleep on the floor. One night I remember a scorpion crawled onto Chavas chest and we freaked out. We did not sleep well that night. In the morning we woke up and I remember we went to fetch water from the water hole. We walked a mile to get water back then. Chava carried two big buckets and I had my two smaller buckets. Victoria and Jose would send us to get the water and send us to cut pear cactus for breakfast. They would make us the pear cactus with red chili and it was so good. 

There are so many more memories I could go on forever. I will miss my brother greatly and I pray for you all. Always. Love you guys.

There are no words to describe how much I miss you dad! How many times I've thought I need to ask you how to fix something or why its not working anymore. Its hurts so bad but im so blessed to have had the time I had with you. You loved me, nurtured me, guided me and most of all showed me what a real man and father should be. Nobody could come close to filling your shoes and do everything you did for us here on earth and for that I am forever grateful. I will continue to use the knowledge and wisdom you taught me as well as all the tools you gave me ❤ I love you daddy and don't worry I am taking care of mom ❤ until we meet again you will forever be in my heart.
