OBITUARY:

Salvador Hernandez passed away peacefully at his home with his loving family surrounding him Thursday, October 8th. The beloved husband of Carmen Hernandez he was seventy nine years of age.

Born in Puerto Rico, Salvador was the son of the late Ulpiano Hernandez and Bautista Sanchez. Raised and educated in Puerto Rico, Salvador moved to Massachusetts and settled in Woburn where he has remained for the last fifty years.

Married to Carmen Santiago in 1966, they settled down and made their home in the Hammond Square section of the city. They brought three children into the world whom he cherished. He began his employment here in Woburn at JJ Riley’s for twenty three years, serving as a machine operator. He had also had worked part time for Winfield Brooks with the cleaners and chemicals. A very hard worker and having held down two jobs most of his life he retired in 1999.

It was during this time that he was able to do all the things he enjoyed doing, as time was now readily available to him! Fishing on the ocean, lake or pond, watching the baseball, football and soccer games and spending time with family and friends at the family gatherings, cook outs or just in the back yard! He was the life of any party. A very engaging man Salvador had a wonderful sense of humor and loved to laugh!

When it came to his grandchildren, “Papa” cherished all the time he had available to spend with them and shared a very special relationship amongst all six of them.

A very kind and thoughtful man, Salvador had his family at the forefront of his life. He was a dedicated husband for over forty eight years and a good provider for his family, who cherished it all.

In addition to his parents Salvador was sadly predeceased by his sister Gabriela Hernandez.
