Gregory A. Sanchez

July 30, 1958March 11, 2018

Gregory Alfred Sanchez was simply the best family man. He went home to be with the Lord on March 11, 2018, following an epic battle against valley fever. He lived a life loving and serving God and his family. He was a loving husband and life partner to Linda Sanchez of 41 years. He has three children, Sonia Ann Wilks, Erica Marie Castillo, and Andrew Alfred Sanchez; two sons-in-law, Jonathan Wilks and David Castillo; and three grandchildren, Grace Elizabeth Wilks, Isaac Robert Castillo, and Noah David Castillo. He was a brother to Gloria Salazar. He also had several nieces and nephews, which he loved very much. He was Superman to his children. He taught his children how to work hard, serve others, love one another, and have faith in God. He traveled to many places and enjoyed taking his family on road trips. When he wasn’t working, he loved to cook and to be with his family. He loved music and would always be busy in the kitchen, dancing and joking around. His children know to their core that they were loved deeply by their father. The shared love from their father and mother has formed a legacy of love, faith, and service to God and others that will disseminate through generations to come. His life was well-lived, and he has made this world a better place with the legacy he leaves behind. His family will miss him dearly, but they have peace knowing their husband and dad is finally home in heaven where they will meet him again one day.

What a beautiful tribute to a wonderful man. The father he was is reflected in his son, who I have the pleasure of working with. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. "Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy."
