Obituary: Baulio (Joe) Sacedo Esparza (Mar. 24, 1930 – Feb. 3, 2013)

Braulio (Joe) Salcedo EsparzaBraulio (Joe) Salcedo Esparza was born on March 24, 1930. He was the eldest of six siblings. He passed away February 3, 2013, after a prolonged medical condition.

Joe moved here from Michoacan, Mexico, to work in the local mill in Smith River where he met his wife, Kathleen, in 1964, and they moved to Crescent City to work at Miller Rellim until he retired 30 years later.

Joe loved fishing and hunting but always brought home trees to put in the yard. He loved to garden and planted his zucchini and jalapeño plants.

Joe was very proud to have gained citizenship September 10, 1998.

After heart surgery in 2010, he found most joy listening to his music tapes and bird-watching with his dog “Chula.”

He also leaves behind his grandchildren Adam and Thomas Madruga, Seth Esparza-Vanpelt, Fransisco and Rosa Esparza.
