John Salvador Sr.
Retired Notary Public, Founder
John was the founder of the firm in 1968. We are all grateful to him for his hard work and good reputation. We still have clients who started with John and wouldn’t dream of going elsewhere for notarial services. In 1968, John encouraged his administrative assistant, Susan Davis, and his daughter, Laurie Salvador to take over the practise. He stayed long enough to make sure the two of them had a good start on their new careers as Notaries.
John lived a long, happy retirement and passed away in 2021 at the age of 95.
