Salazar, 35, had dream of open road.....By Carlos Salazar(Reporter)Family members say that Joe F. Salazar, a native of Albuquerque, saw much of the United States through a windshield. His heart they say, was in truck driving and motorcycling. The 1974 graduate of Rio Grande High School began his truck driving career with Serna Truck Co. and Albuquerque Gravel products. He later worked more than 13 years with various regional and national trucking firms. Salazar 35, died March 7 of injuries he received in a motorcycle crash that day in the south valley. The funeral was March 11 at Victory Love Fellowship Church. "He loved to drive a truck. It was his dream since he was a little boy," said his twin brother, Manuel."He wanted to see the world. He gave up truck driving a year ago, because he wanted to go into law enforcement, and be near his children. Deep down, he wanted to go back on the road. That is all he talked about."He was born, and raised in Albuquerque. He attended Armijo Elementary School, and Ernie Pyle middle school, before enrolling at Rio Grande. He worked as a security officer for the Vista Del Sol Mobile home park, at the time of his death. "He was the kind of person you looked up to"said his brother. Survivors include his wife, Peggie, Sons Jeremy, Jeffrey, and Joey Salazar. Daughter, Jennifer, parents Jose and Esther Salazar, sister Maria Salazar, and twin brother Manuel Salazar, all from Albuquerque.
