Former Salvadoran President Armando Calderon Sol Dies at 69

WASHINGTON – Armando Calderon Sol, who served as El Salvador’s president from 1994-1999 and implemented the peace agreements that ended the civil war, died in Houston on Monday following a long battle with cancer, his family said. He was 69.

“On this date, Oct. 9, at 12:15 am El Salvador time, we have our angel in Heaven. Thank you to all of you who accompanied us with your prayers and thoughts,” the Calderon Sol family said in a statement.

“First, we want to thank God and the Most Holy Virgin for the time they gave us to enjoy Armando’s kindness. We are thankful for his great teachings on faith, humility and love for others,” the family said.

Calderon Sol underwent cancer treatment in the US after having surgery in San Salvador last month.

The former president’s administration, backed by El Salvador’s military, implemented the peace agreements signed by his ARENA party and the FMLN guerrilla group in 1992.

The peace agreements ended a 12-year civil war that left 75,000 people dead, 12,000 wounded and 8,000 others missing.
