Salvador Espinoza II

Jul 16, 1953 - Oct 13, 2022


Salvador Espinoza II passed away on Oct. 13, 2022 in Elk Grove, CA at the age of 69, after a hard fought battle with cancer. Just like he dealt with all experiences in life, Salvador managed his illness with strength and a warrior’s spirit. Sal is survived by his loving wife of 14 years, Karina Espinoza, who was his selfless caretaker until the end. Sal is also survived by his Mother, Beatrice Espinoza & his Sister, Elisa Robinson. Sal was an extremely proud Father and Grandfather. Sal is survived by his Son, Anthony Anguiano, his Daughters, Monica Jones and Jessica Hays, his 8 Grandchildren, RJ Cabral, Aiden Anguiano, Madison Hays, Mikey Jones, Ashton Anguiano, Joshua Hays, Kelly Hays and Alexander Hays. Sal was preceded in death by his Father, Salvador Espinoza & his Brother, Anthony “Tony” Espinoza.
As a child, Sal’s thoughtful, kind-hearted nature emerged and it stayed with him throughout his life. He grew up in the Bay Area and developed a love for football, loud music and Harley Davidson motorcycles. Sal was known for his fun-loving, easy going, laid back personality. One of Sal’s greatest qualities was his absolute love & admiration for his family. When he was healthy enough, you would always find Sal in the stands at his grandkids’ sporting events. Sal was a lifelong and loyal San Francisco 49’ers fan. During his career, Sal was a business owner for EB Floor Covering, a Truck Driver and an Electrician. Sal was known for his slow and steady pace, always taking pride in his work and putting quality above all else. Sal believed firmly in always doing the right thing and never cutting corners. Sal was a man of few words, but when he spoke, everyone listened.
Sal will be remembered by those who knew him best as a caring, loving, devoted, determined, sometimes stubborn, slightly mischievous, proud as heck family man. Sal had the best smile and a twinkle in his eye that will always be missed and never forgotten.

Sal’s celebration of life will be held Friday, Oct. 21st 2022 at 2pm at East Lawn Memorial Park, 9189 E Stockton Blvd, Elk Grove, CA 95624
