Salvador Perez, age 93 of Wyandotte, passed away on October 11, 2022. He was born in Mexico on July 7, 1929 to Carmen and Severiano Perez. “Chava” was the third of 12 children. He came to the United States in the late 1950’s and married Gloria, the love of his life, in 1960. They moved to Wyandotte in 1966 and together they raised 4 daughters.
Sal was a loving, kind and generous man. He had a very strong religious faith and was devoted to his family. For many years he worked two jobs to support his family and send his daughters to college. He cherished and was adored by his 4 grandchildren and was very active in raising them.
He was a longtime barber in Wyandotte and owned 2 different shops, one at the south end and later one on the north end of town. Everyone knew and loved “Sal the Barber”.
Sal and Gloria were active members of St Patrick’s parish in Wyandotte and he served as an usher for several years.
Sal was a talented soccer player and played with several local clubs, including Club Germania. He loved gardening (he had a very green thumb), playing guitar, singing, taking his family on vacations and tinkering in his garage.
Our hearts are broken that he is no longer with us here on earth but we are comforted knowing he is no longer suffering and is reunited with our Mom in Heaven.
Memorial donations are appreciated to Alzheimer’s Association.
