Braulio Sandoval

Braulio Sandoval, 28, of Austin, Minnesota, died at his home on Saturday, April 8, 2017.

Braulio Sandoval was born to Juan and Christina Sandoval on Oct. 21, 1988, in Brownsville,Texas. He and his family moved to Austin in 1999 where he was raised and lived the rest of his life.

Braulio was the most loving father, son, brother, uncle and husband. He always thought of others before himself. If you needed anything, Braulio would be there, no questions asked. He enjoyed listening to country music, playing Xbox, having cookouts and spending time with his kids. Braulio loved to go on vacation to Texas to visit his mom, Cristina Sandoval. He enjoyed fishing with his brother and kids. Braulio always looked out for his family and took really good care of them. It’s hard moving on without him in their lives. He was their strength and their rock, and always kept them going. They will miss him very much and love him deeply.
