In the radiant light of his life, Rogelio "Queli" Salazar was a beacon of resilience, and his spirit remains an uplifting reminder of the indomitable power of positivity. Born on September 2, 1961, in Mission, Texas, Rogelio's journey was a testament to his courage and talent. His love for the arts was evident in his stunning drawings and paintings, each piece a vibrant expression of his free spirit. The rocks and feathers he collected were not just objects but symbols of the beauty he found in the simplest things, a reflection of his deep respect for nature. He was a spiritual man who found solace in the teachings of the Catholic faith. In the words of St. Francis of Assisi, "Where there is love and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance," a mantra that resonated deeply with Rogelio.\n\nRogelio was a devoted husband to his beloved wife, Teresa Garza, and a loyal father, his love for his family unwavering. He was a tower of strength, never complaining even in the face of life's challenges. He was known by many, but truly understood by the family who cherished him. He is survived by his wife, Teresa Garza, his step-children Stephanie Anita Garza, Jose Martin Garza and Juan Alberto Gonzalez, his sisters Flor Estella Salazar, Irma (Juan) Rodriguez, and Ana (Horacio) Tijerina: a brother Rodolfo (Violeta) Salazar; and his mother-in-law, Maria Garza. He was preceded in death by his parents, Teodoro Salazar and Maria Rafaela Rodriguez Salazar, and his father-in-law, Jose Garza.\n\nServices to celebrate Rogelio's life will begin with a public visitation on Monday, November 27, 2023, at 4:00pm CST, at Brown Family Funeral Home, followed by a Rosary at 7:00pm.
