Guillermo “Bill” Salcido, 73, of Carlsbad New Mexico took his last breath Thursday, May 18, 2023 with his family and Beautiful Caretakers Rita Avitia and Chasity Montoya from Lending Hands. I Thank you ladies for everything. Cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held at 10:00 AM, Thursday, May 25, 2023 at Denton-Wood Funeral Home Chapel. Interment will follow in Carlsbad Cemetery, Carlsbad, NM.
Mr. Bill Loved his lottery which he has now won to be with his green-eyed lady, Nati and his best friend, God. He Loved his grand kids and he loved everyone. Even if he called you idiot or turkey brain, he made sure they all were safe.
Bill was born September 4, 1949 in Carlsbad, New Mexico to Albert and Faustina (Rodriquez) Salcido. He graduated May 28, 1968 from Carlsbad High school. He loved to coach baseball and his passion was to build whatever you dreamed of; he could do. Bill loved to fish and in his younger days. He loved his cars, visiting his parents and hanging out with his brother-in-law, Mario and nephews: Mark & Matthew.
Mr. Bill will be truly missed. He would ponder on the scripture verse from Mark 8:26, “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” Bill’s answer would be, “I don’t know, I used to be on top of the mountain, now I look up at the hill.”
“Peace is always the goal of the way forward, but the way is never easy.” ~ Nati Ramirez
