Sabas G Sepulveda, 82, died Jan. 15, 2021 at The Ranch House Senior Living in Garden City, KS. He was born Dec. 5, 1938 the son of Teodolo and Flora (Rodriguez) Sepulveda in Monterrey, Mexico. Sabas came to the United States in the 1970s. He met Herlinda Salazar and married her on Sept. 29, 1979 in Mission, Texas.
He was mechanically inclined. He could build and design many things.. both of his own invention and other’s ideas from scratch. Among his creations were a bridge in his native hometown, an air conditioner built from an old radiator, and refurbished old-style radios. His family describes him as a MacGyver of sorts, many times he would fix car problems with ordinary household items. Not only would he give the shirt off his back for family, he would have gladly given his own life to save theirs.
In addition to his wife, he is survived by his sons, Juan (Katie) Sepulveda and Ricardo (Victoria) Sepulveda; grandchildren, Ruben, Eliza, Raquel, Christina, Damien, Esmeralda, Jasmin, Martin and Ernesto; great grandchildren, Everret, Xoli and Demetri; and siblings, Bonifacio and Dolores Sepulveda. He was preceded in death by his parents; and siblings, Jesus and Jose Sepulveda.
