Obituary for Salvadore Ortiz

Salvadore Ortiz of Banks County, Georgia died August 26, 2016. Born January
12, 1930 in Miami, Arizona to Hillario and Paula Ortiz, he is one of twelve
children with one living sister, Josefina, in Los Angeles. Married for 63
years to the former Evelyn Crane of Gainesville, Georgia, he came to the
area during his military service as an airborne Ranger from 1951-53. Post
service he learned the auto body repair trade and built a reputation for
skill in this field across the Atlanta area. He possessed many talents that
were evident as early as childhood ranging from an ability to draw, a love
of reading and a strong ethic toward learning and labor. He passed these
along to his six children, Alex and Christopher of Atlanta, Alan of
Hartwell, Linda Ortiz-Newton of Savannah and Laura Ortiz-Beltramini of San
Francisco. He joins his son Michael greeting him at Glory's gate. He is
remembered by his children as a loving father who always finished a hard
day's work with a game of backyard sport. He retired to his farm to pursue
his passion for raising Beefmaster cattle. He knew the name of every plant
on his land and would commonly transplant and nurture native plants of
interest to him. He leaves behind 16 grandchildren and 13 great
grandchildren. He lived his life as an example for his family to follow in
sense of duty and belief in one's ability to overcome and prosper through
hard work and self reliance.

The family will hold a private memorial in the near future.
