On January 10, 2024, Mauricio Trigueros passed away at home surrounded by his family after a long battle with dementia. Mauricio’s charm, humor, and storytelling lit up the room and attracted many close friends who loved him dearly. Mauricio was born in Hospital Rosales in San Salvador on November 16, 1935. Raised by a determined and hardworking single mother, he spent much of his youth in a combined household with his five beloved tías and numerous cousins in Sonsonate, El Salvador.
After being one of only two students to graduate from Tomas Jefferson Secondary School in Sonsonate and attending University of El Salvador for two years, studying engineering, Mauricio emigrated to the United States to reunite with his mother who had come over six years prior. Shortly after, he brought over his wife from El Salvador and the two raised their family of three daughters, including his daughter Margaret, in San Francisco. In the U.S., Mauricio worked many varied jobs to support his family – from car painter to army draftee to barber.
While barbering, he returned to school, attending City College of San Francisco and San Francisco State University, graduating with a degree in accounting. Mauricio’s career and professional life was an important part of his identity and many of his closest friends were made through work. Mauricio worked for the Mission Model Cities project, CPA John Ramirez, and the Mission Language and Vocational School before joining the San Francisco Clean Water Program and later the City government. Mauricio spent ten years as the Budget Officer for the San Francisco Department of Public Works before retiring in 2001. After his first marriage ended, Mauricio fell in love with Paula, who also worked for the City, and the two married in 1985. The couple raised two daughters, Alezah and Rachele, and Mauricio became Mr. Mom upon his retirement.
His family will love and miss him forever, but his stories and his memory will continue to live on through his loved ones.
