SALGADO, Christian Alexander (WaWa)

December 14, 1992 – Calgary, Alberta
January 22, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta

Christian Salgado beloved son of Monica Santos (Christian Salgado) and Marco Rodriguez of Calgary passed away on January 22, 2019 at the age of 26 years. He loved both his Fathers equally in different ways.

Christian was a beautiful soul. Fun and vibrant and much loved. His passion was cars and he was pursuing a career as a mechanic, and loved his job and workmates at BMW. His love and kindness was felt by all. Everyone knew Wawa as generous with both his time and his compassion. He followed his New England Patriots through rain and shine, and enjoyed the banter with his Mom and Uncles all supporting different teams. He took his duties as a big brother to Tiana very serious. Christian was a proud Chilean.

Christian’s compassion also spread to his community, he worked for a non profit organization helping individuals with disabilities. He loved his room mate Morgan and spoke fondly of him. His close friends knew him as a brother and included him in their family lives.

Christian is survived by his parents Monica Santos, Christian (Nano) Salgado and Marco Rodriguez; his grandmother Monica; his beloved sister Tiana (ugly chicken nugget) as well as Grace, Jordan, Nicole and Nattasha; Numerous Tio’s and Tia’s, Primo’s and Prima’s and was honoured to be the Godfather of Myla.

He will be accompanied in Heaven by his Uncle Carlos and his cherished dog Scooby.

  11. Christian,
    In a world full of negativity, you were a breath of fresh air. We got to know each other through BMW. You were like my little brother. I’ll never forget you man.

    To his entire family, I hope you all find solace in knowing just how great of a person he was. He’s resting comfortably in heaven as I type this.
