July 4, 2019
Jacobo Salinas, 74, went with the Lord on July 4, 2019, in Bakersfield, after a short illness.
Salinas was born on Oct. 11, 1944, in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, Mexico to Jacobo Salinas and Juanita Garcia.
As a child he worked in the fields with his family and attended school in Wasco. As a young boy, he enjoyed helping his mom, and that carried into adulthood where he loved waking every morning and making coffee for his wife. He loved getting up early and playing his music, taking his grandkids to school and picking them up as well. He had lots of friends and would have endless conversations, even with strangers. He loved classic cars and Tejano music, but most of all he loved his family and friends.
Jacobo is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Rosa Elia Torres Salinas, and six children: Jacob, Joel, Jimmy, Victoria, Noemi and Julie; eight grandchildren; and a great grandchild. He was preceded in death by his parents, Jacobo and Juanita; his brother and sister, Rogelio and Yolanda; and his niece, Ericka, and nephew, Joe.
A viewing was held July 10 at Peters Funeral Home in Wasco. A chapel service was held July 11 at St. John's Catholic Church in Wasco, followed by a burial at Wasco Memorial Park.
