Omar Martin Saucedo, age 29, formerly of Las Cruces, New Mexico, died on Friday, April 26, 2013, in Tyler, Texas.

He was born on March 15, 1984, in Las Cruces, New Mexico, to Henry Saucedo and Rosa Aguero.

He graduated from NMYCA, where he was named cadet of month. He received numerous awards for his athletic achievements in baseball. He was a Water Damage Restoration Technician for Service Master, in Tyler, Texas. He also helped his uncles in their work.

His hobbies included baseball, attending concerts and spending time with his family and dog, Apollo.

Omar recently found peace with God and had been devout in his religious practices. Omar's positive attitude and laughter was always a hit in any room. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him. Omar wanted our family to show more love to each other more than anything in the world. He had the heaviest hands. When he was five years old he used to turn on the water hose at grandpa's house; grandpa would tighten it up as much as possible. Omar would still manage to open it up and make a mess everywhere. Later on he learned how to throw a ninety mile an hour heavy ball. One time he coached his younger brother's baseball team and inspected everyone's baseball glove and laughed. He played catch with every player until he broke everyone's glove. The last glove he broke thumped Julio on the chest really hard. Everyone laughed, as boys will be boys. Omar's passion for baseball was evident in every game he played. Omar never gave up on his dream to play professional baseball. The last couple of months of his life he spent his time running and doing countless pushups, sometimes from early morning until late at night. He spent many quality hours with his father at work, at the baseball fields and just hanging out together. Anybody who knew Omar through baseball, please join his family in celebrating his life.

Survivors included his grandparents Candelario and Eulalia Saucedo, and Esparanza Rodriguez, as well as his parents, Henry Saucedo and Rosa Aguero. He was survived by his two younger brothers, Louie, with whom he loved playing baseball, Karlos Saucedo, a large loving family of aunts, uncles and cousins. He was also survived by his loving girlfriend and long time companion, Candy Prieto. He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Martin Rodriguez, and his great grandmother, Anastasia Mata.

A rosary was said on Sunday May 5, 2013, at the Getz Funeral Home.

The funeral liturgy was on Monday, May 6, 2013, at The Cathedral of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Rite of committal was at the St. Joseph Cemetery, where he was laid to rest next to his great- grandmother.

Serving as pallbearers were Louie Saucedo, Karlos Saucedo, Tom Mascitelli, Rudy Carbajal, Johnny Saucedo, Rick Saucedo, and Martin Rodriguez. Honorary Pallbearers were Valente Cisneros, Julio Ordaz, Chris Perea, Gabe Arvizu and Richy Hernandez.
