JOE "MACKY" MACARIO SANCHEZ 1/25/1958 - 3/24/2014 It is with great love that we celebrate the life of Joe Sanchez, a father, son, grandfather, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend. Joe was born & raised in Barstow, graduating from Kennedy High School in 1975 and later serving 4 years in the National Guard. His life was filled with helping friends and the homeless, always grateful to be here one day at a time. He enjoyed the outdoors, working on bikes and watching & playing sports. He especially loved spending 8 years in New Mexico with his daughter Elizabeth, before making Barstow his permanent home. Joe is survived by his daughter Elizabeth of NM., his mother Selina Sanchez of Barstow, 2 granddaughters Amya & Ayhiesha of NM., 3 brothers Nino Sanchez (and Darlene) of Apple Valley, Ricky Sanchez of Barstow, James Sanchez of Barstow, 5 sisters Maria Renteria of Barstow, Eloisa Zamora (and Sam) of Barstow, Cecilia Baca of NM., Pauline Simco (and Phil) of Costa Mesa, CA., Lisa Garcia (and Rumaldo) of NM., and numerous nieces & nephews.
