Maynor Funes-Salgado

Age 17

Oakland, California

A sports fan, a baby brother

He wore a Golden State Warrior jersey, representing an Oakland basketball team nicknamed the “happiest team in sports.” The blue and yellow hues complemented his eyes, brimming with curiosity.  

In 2003, his family emigrated from Honduras to Oakland, on the east side of the San Francisco Bay. The warm and humid weather encompassed him daily. The city view consisted of city lights, glistening buildings and teal bodies of water: a landscape that he explored with his older brother.

Maynor Funes-Salgado, 17, and his older brother were shot in their adopted hometown on April 2, 2018. Maynor died from his wounds.
