Body of Man Killed in TX Coming Home to Portland
The body of 57-year-old Mariano Saldivar is headed back to Portland this week. He was killed last week in the West, Texas fertilizer plant explosion.
Saldivar's sister became nervous after watching the aftermath o the blast on T.V. She knew his apartment was nearby. Two of his sons flew to Texas to find out for themselves if he was OK. Unfortunately, they did not receive any good news.
Saldivar had just moved from Portland to Waco to retire. The family wants his body to be buried here in Portland. A service will be held this weekend at Mount Scott Funeral Home.
