Salomon Angel Correa was born on April 13th, 2001, and died on January 22, 2023. He was born to Salomón Correa and Alicia Olvera in Riverside, California. Shortly after his birth, his parents moved back to Mexico. For the next several years, Salomón grew up in the village of Arúmbaro, nestled in the Sierra Madre mountains of Michoacán.
Salomón loved his work in the village, where he took care of livestock and worked in the fields. His favorite sport was soccer. At the age of eleven, Salomón experienced a growing fear as he realized, terrified, he did not know what would happen to him after he died. After his mother shared the Bible’s message of truth and hope with him, he finally placed his faith in Jesus Christ as his only Savior. In saving Salómon, the Lord brought him great joy, breaking the power of sin and the fear of death that had previously enslaved him.
At fifteen, Salomón went to live with his uncle in California to learn English and work to help support his family. After two years of attending school and working in a grocery store there, Salomón’s parents arranged for him to move to Arkansas for his senior year of high school. There, he would live with the Persson family, who had formed a connection with the Correa family years earlier in Mexico. Salomón was nervous about the change at first, but soon became part of the family.
Salomón graduated from Sylvan Hills High School in 2020. After a gap year, he attended Jackson Hole Bible College in Wilson, Wyoming, where he made many new friends, graduating in 2022. In each of his communities, he was loved greatly by those who knew his generous smile, joyful laugh, and quiet wisdom. He was especially adored by children.
Salomón will be deeply missed by his parents and siblings Noemí, Lucía, Samuel, Pedro, Lisa, and Noé.
Salomón had a strong desire to serve the Lord, urging his family and friends to put their faith in Jesus. Because of Christ, his fear of death was replaced by the assurance of eternal life. He would want his death to bring that same hope of eternal life to others. The phrase he constantly used to encourage others was: “Eyes on Christ.”
