Our beloved Miguel Angel Bayona, 70, passed away on September 27, 2023 while visiting family and loved ones in El Salvador. Miguel was born in Bolivar, LA Union, El Salvador to his late parents, Alejandra Villatoro and Fernando Bayona. He grew up in San Miguel where he eventually met his wife Marina and started a family. Miguel moved to California in 1989 to provide a better life and future for his family. There in California, he found his faith in the Mormon church.
