Our beloved son, grandson, nephew, brother and dear friend, Julio Ignacio Sandoval, was born September 20 1992, in Jacksonville, NC. From the time he was born, he brought warmth and happiness to us, to me. Our lives will never be the same with his passing but we draw strength knowing he has gone home and is with our Lord and savior in heaven. What words can I use to describe my son? How does one describe love? Julio put others before himself. He was like a diamond, all his facets shined a little different but were all beautiful. He was a US Navy Corpsman stationed at Cherry Point, SC. Julio passed away March 2 2014, as a passenger in a vehicle accident. We should always remember Julio for the pure joy and love he gave us. I will miss him but know he is only a prayer away and we will see him again, God willing. We all love you Julio. Julio is survived by his parents, Jesus and Leilani Sandoval; mother, Mitsuko Matsubara; grandparents, Ignacio and Laura Sandoval; sisters, Josephine, Monica and Jessica; brothers, Ryo, Michael, Richie, Gabriel and Calagero; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and friends.
