It is with great sorrow that the Saucedo Family of Gilroy announces the passing of our beloved Henry “Papa” Saucedo on January 20, 2018. He died peacefully at his home surrounded by his family and close friends. He is survived by his two devoted children Henry Acedo Jr. and Rosemary Acedo Carranza and his two sisters Celia Pineda and Amparo Saucedo. He was preceded in death by his loving wife of 65 years, Carmen Saucedo, his youngest daughter Joann Acedo Gomez, his two brothers Ernesto Saucedo and Antonio Saucedo, his four sisters Soledad Saucedo, Melania Saucedo, Catalina Mascota and Maria Elena Rodriguez. Also surviving Henry are his eight wonderful grandchildren Joey Carranza, Arturo Carranza, Linda Carranza-Blundo, Jina Carranza, Brian Carranza, Christopher Gomez, Michael Acedo, Eric Acedo and seven beautiful great-grandchildren.
Henry was born to Benigno Saucedo and Aurora Andrade Saucedo on December 19, 1927. Henry was a long time resident of Morgan Hill and Gilroy. He was a devoted Family man who was employed most of his life working in agriculture. He received praise for his ability to grow beautiful roses and excellent fruit and vegetables. He was well known for his charismatic and unassuming demeanor that endeared him to everyone he came in contact with. Papa constantly shared his stories of his humble beginnings and beautiful life experiences shared with his wife “Carmelita.” Henry also loved an occasional trip to the nearest casino with his wife Carmen. Henry will be missed dearly, but will forever be deep within our hearts and memories, always.
