"Beloved husband, father, and grandfather".

Husband of Ysaura: 04-25-1920 to 10-07-2005.
Father of Fidel: 04-24-1947 to 09-05-2003.

[Manuel C. Baldenegro, Jr. provides this information on 09-11-08 for his grandfather: "Bartolo Valenzuela Baldenegro, Sr. was born in Mesa, Arizona on December 6th, 1911, and
was one of 10 siblings raised by Francisco and Tula Baldenegro. Bartolo was a second generation Mexican American whose grandparents immigrated in 1880 from Sonora to Yuma. During this time, the region was known as the Arizona Territory prior to Arizona achieving statehood in 1912. At the turn of the 20th century, roughly 1905-06, Bartolo's grandfather Leandro achieved citizenship in the United States and acquired a homestead of 320 acres. This property was comprised of undeveloped lands along the banks and tributaries of the Santa Cruz River, a
tributary of the larger Gila River in southwestern Arizona. The homestead was located near the community of Friendly Corner, 10 miles southeast of Eloy, Arizona.

Grandpa Leandro named his homestead "El Rancho" and settled his family there. Through the years, they proceeded to develop and crop the undeveloped area into prime agricultural lands. It was during this period that Bartolo developed his farming skill, knowledge and
expertise in farmland irrigation techniques of the day.

On October 6th, 1934, Bartolo married Ysaura Garcia and they began to raise a family on the ranch during the Depression Era. Cotton, alfalfa and cevada (barley) were the primary crops developed on "El Rancho" by Bartolo while his brothers fought in World War II. After 1954, Bartolo decided to apply his experience gained on "El Rancho" in the irrigation of farmlands in the San Joaquin Valley. He, Ysaura and the growing Baldenegro family migrated from Eloy, Arizona to the San Joaquin Valley. They picked potatoes around Shafter in Kern county and plums, nectarines and peaches in the Madera area. The family would also travel to Napa for several months to pick prunes and return to Madera after the season. In 1956, Bartolo and family stopped migrating with the harvest seasons and settled in Madera where the family grew.

Bartolo and Ysaura raised four daughters, Sara Samudio, Dolores Baldenegro, Angelita Esquivel and Ernestine Vasquez and four sons, Francisco, Manuel, Fidel and Bartolo Jr. Bartolo was a proud grandfather of 20 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren."]
