Guam - If you are familiar with Sanctuary, then chances are you have met George Salas. Unfortunately, KUAM News has learned that he passed away early yesterday morning. According to Sanctuary executive director Millie Lujan, Salas was the longest term employee of Sanctuary having been with the non-profit since 1991 and holding various positions over the years from case worker to program director. 

Lujan says Salas impacted many young people's lives and fondly remembers him as being pure hearted and serious with a dry sense of humor.  She says he was dedicated to Sanctuary and the Americorp Program. Adding that before he retired in March - one of his most memorable contributions was developing an anger management group.

A mass is being offered by Sanctuary at 12pm at the Saint Jude Catholic Church in Ordot.
