Ricardo Salcedo-Ramirez

February 11, 1967 — March 22, 2024

Fresno

Ricardo Salcedo Ramirez of Fresno, California passed away on Friday, March 22, 2024, at the age of 57.  Ricardo died peacefully with his family by his side. 

Ricardo, Ruben and Rafael (The Triplets) were born in El Paso, Texas on February 11, 1967, to Narcizo  and Faustina Salcedo. Ricardo grew up in Three Rocks, California. He attended Cantua Elementary School from Head Start to the Eighth Grade and graduated in 1982.  Ricardo attended Tranquillity Union High School and graduated in 1986 and he attended Reedley College in 1987 and received an Automotive service certification. 

At a very young age, his father showed him a strong work ethic and his mother taught him about caring for others; take pride in the work you do and respect your elders.  Ricardo would follow in their footsteps by doing the same work as his father (working as a farm worker in the cotton fields near Mendota). Ricardo always enjoyed showing his affection to his family. 

Ricardo worked at various automotive shops as a mechanic in Fresno.  He transitioned into working on RVs as a Service Technician and then became a Show Thru Associate, at Camping World. 

Ricardo was extremely happy when his children Marisa Adriana Salcedo-Alvarez and Estevan Ricardo Salcedo were born.  He supported them in everything they did and was super happy when they provided him with grandchildren.  He was known as grandpa, crazy grandpa, crazy papa, and uncle dad.  He was a true child at heart. 

Ricardo would give 110% in every thing he did.  After his regular 9 to 5 job, he would often be seen working on cars and trucks late into the night, helping a friend in need. 

In recent years he became a faithful member of The Lighthouse Christian Fellowship Church in Fresno, California. He served as an usher and also supported various ministries. He was committed to the weekly fellowship at the Ignite Men’s Ministry group, often inviting others to join him. One of his joyful passions was working on the annual Operation Christmas Child project with Norma Andrade-Cantu. She later became his wife on November 26, 2022, in Pacific Grove, California. Together they enjoyed traveling, spending time with family, discovering favorite places to eat and working on their new home near Reedley Beach, California.

Ricardo was preceded in death by his parents. Survived by his wife Norma Andrade-Cantu, by his brothers and sisters: Leopoldo, Jose Antonio, Ruben, Rafael, Beatriz Chaidez, Felicia  Graham, and Christina Martinez, his children: Marisa Adriana Salcedo- Alvarez and Estevan Ricardo Salcedo and grandchildren: Eli Alvarez, Raul Juarez, Yuku Alvarez, Taji Alvarez, Santos Alvarez, Jonah Salcedo, Gianna Salcedo and Liliana Salcedo, Additional Children: Jose Andrade-Cantu, Vanessa Andrade-Cantu, Gabriel Andrade-Cantu, and Joshua Andrade-Cantu, and Additional Grandchildren: Atlas Wissner-Cantu, and Samson Cantu.


Ricardo Salcedo Ramírez de Fresno, California falleció el viernes 22 de marzo de 2024 a la edad de 57 años. Ricardo murió en paz con su familia a su lado.

Ricardo, Rubén y Rafael (Los Trillizos) nacieron en El Paso, Texas el 11 de febrero de 1967, hijos de Narcizo y Faustina Salcedo. Ricardo creció en Three Rocks, California. Asistió a la Escuela Primaria Cantua desde Head Start hasta el octavo grado y se graduó en 1982. Ricardo asistió a la Escuela Secundaria Tranquility Union y se graduó en 1986 y asistió a Reedley College en 1987 y recibió una certificación de servicio automotriz.

Desde muy joven, su padre le mostró una fuerte ética de trabajo y su madre le enseñó a cuidar de los demás; siéntete orgulloso del trabajo que haces y respeta a tus mayores. Ricardo seguiría sus pasos haciendo el mismo trabajo que su padre (trabajando como trabajador agrícola en los campos de algodón cerca de Mendota). Ricardo siempre disfrutó mostrar su cariño a su familia.

Ricardo trabajó en varios talleres automotrices como mecánico en Fresno. Hizo la transición para trabajar en vehículos recreativos como técnico de servicio y luego se convirtió en asociado de Show Thru en Camping World.

Ricardo se sintió sumamente feliz cuando nacieron sus hijos Marisa Adriana Salcedo-Alvarez y Estevan Ricardo Salcedo. Los apoyó en todo lo que hicieron y estuvo súper feliz cuando le dieron nietos. Era conocido como abuelo, abuelo loco, papá loco y tío papá. Era un verdadero niño de corazón.

Ricardo daría el 110% en cada cosa que hiciera. Después de su trabajo habitual de 9 a 5, a menudo se le veía trabajando en automóviles y camiones hasta altas horas de la noche, ayudando a un amigo necesitado. 

En los últimos años se convirtió en un miembro fiel de la Iglesia The Lighthouse Christian Fellowship en Fresno, California, sirviendo de ujier y apoyando a varios ministerios.  Comprometido al grupo del Ministerio de Hombres “Ignite” participaria en las reuniones semanales invitando a otros que asistieran juntamente con él.  Uno de sus labores más placenteros fue trabajar con Norma Andrade-Cantu en el proyecto anual de “Operation Christmas Child”.  Ella se convirtió en su esposa el 26 de noviembre del 2022 en Pacific Grove, California.  Disfrutaban viajar, pasar tiempo con la familia, descubrir lugares favoritos de comer, y trabajar en su nuevo hogar cerca de Reedley Beach, California.

A Ricardo le precedieron en la muerte sus padres. Le sobrevive su esposa Norma Andrade-Cantú, sus hermanos y hermanas: Leopoldo, José Antonio, Rubén, Rafael, Beatriz Chaidez, Felicia Graham y Christina Martínez, sus hijos: Marisa Adriana Salcedo-Alvarez y Estevan Ricardo Salcedo y sus nietos: Eli.
