Jose G. Sanchez
Posted: May 03, 2015 - 1:25 am

Jose G. Sanchez, born December 11, 1949 went home with a profound peacefulness on Wednesday, April 29, 2015, surrounded by his family and friends. Lupe felt extremely blessed to have “lived a full life” in his 65 years. He was a hardworking man who faced every challenge with a determination and persistence that allowed him to go from working in the fields of Texas, Oklahoma, and California to serving in the United States Army and the United States Air Force Reserves and, ultimately, to his retiring from a very successful Civil Service Career with the Federal Aviation Administration. He was a strong and vibrant man who had a natural ability to make people laugh. He loved a good adventure and was able to travel the world with his beloved wife, Melinda. He loved his music, shooting pool, muscle cars, and spending time with his family and friends. His children and grandchildren were his pride and joy; he reveled in their accomplishments from the youngest to the oldest. He did not want people to mourn for his death but instead asked that everyone remember the good times and celebrate what he brought to this life. Lupe was preceded in death by his parents Jose Maria Sanchez and Maria Espinoza Sanchez and a brother Jose Maria Sanchez. He is survived by his wife Melinda Chapa Sanchez; son Jose Guadalupe Sanchez, Jr. and his wife Jeannie; daughter Samantha Villarreal and her husband Ryan; brothers Roland and Dagoberto Sanchez; sisters Rosalinda Vorhis, Margie Behrendt, Lucilla Cabrera, Amanda Corona and Mary Helen Kerkez; grandchildren Jennifer Sanchez, Miguel Sanchez, Gabriela Sanchez, Adrian Villarreal and Eric Villarreal, Kaalum Molinar and Pharaoh Reese. There will be no public service at his request. Memorial contributions may be made online to the American Cancer Society or mail your contribution to American Cancer Society, PO Box 22718, Oklahoma City, OK 73123-1718 in his memory.
