Valente Saldana passed away Wednesday, March, 15, 2023, at his home in Tallulah, Louisiana, at the age of 62. He was born February 22, 1961, in Monroe, Louisiana, to Benigno and Elena Iruegas Saldana. Valente was a father to two daughters, Rachel and Quanita Saldana, and grandfather to Avery, Joshua, Hayden, Corey, and Ryder.
Valente loved to spend time outdoors. He enjoyed spending time with his family “just hanging out and drinking cold ones”. When he could, he would be found on the fishing banks casting a line trying to catch that big one. His sense of humor was second to none. He loved to laugh and have a good time.
Valente is preceded in death by his parents, Elena and Benigno Saldana; brothers, Rauel Saldana and Benigno Saldana, Jr.; and his oldest daughter, Rachel Saldana.
Valente is survived by his youngest daughter, Quanita Saldana; five grandchildren, Avery, Joshua, Hayden, Corey, and Ryder; and siblings, Gregorio Saldana and wife Alanna, Benito Saldana and wife Kelly, Felipe Saldana and wife Charlene, Miguel Saldana and wife Sandy, Santiago Saldana and wife Stacy, Lenor McLin and husband Steve, Julian Saldana, and Adelita Rodriquez and husband Jose.
Pallbearers will be Maria Self, Tom Saldana, Miguel Saldana, Jr., Mario Saldana, Clarence Cox, aka Pig, and Dave Cox, aka Ham.
Special thanks goes to Lenor, Maria, Quanita, Desslina, Selena, and Miguel, Jr. for taking care of him and doing everything y’all did for him so that his last days were peaceful.
