Utah resident comes to celebrate cousin Santos' 100th birthday


Elida Vela de Vom Baur of Salt Lake City plans to visit her cousin Santos Sandoval this week in honor of his 100th birthday. Santos is a resident at Yorktown Nursing and Rehab. In honor of his birthday, Elida has organized a party with a cake that will be made by Sara Munoz. Lupe Garcia, a musician, will sing some of his favorite music. Following is a biography that Elida prepared.
Santos Sandoval is the first cousin of my father, D. I have known Santos all my life and I am writing this memoir to honor him and as a tribute to his life. He was born in Garfield Sept. 10, 1913 to Fernando Sandoval and Petra Ramos Sandoval.
Santos is my only living relative of his generation. Even though I moved away from Texas to Utah when I was young, I have called him weekly and I have visited him every other year.
