    My condolences to the Salazar family. My name is Brandon Simmer and I had the opportunity to work with "Geno" for eight of his 35 years at the Dealership. Geno had a great sense of humor and it was
    always hilarious to see him talk some smack to other employees when they would get out of line. I am sad to hear that he has past away and am sorry I had not gone to the service. Geno, you will be
    missed but never forgotten.
    Go Spartys!

    I will never forget, uncle Eugene made it possible for me to buy my first car ever. I really wish I had lived closer to spend more time before he was taken from us. It breaks my heart that my father
    (John Salazar) had to witness this first hand and my heart goes out to the entire family. I don't have the words right now to express the grief I'm feeling at this moment except, I love you dad and
    you are always on my mind and in my heart.
