Monterey – Alex Sanchez, a lifelong resident, passed away on Monday, September 2, 2013 at his home, from natural causes. He was 85 years old.
Alex's parents, who originated from Salamanca, Spain, moved to Monterey in the early 1900s. Alex was a Monterey High School graduate where he lettered in basketball and golf, was a member of the Athletic Student Body and met his wife, Kathryn Russo who passed away in 1995. Upon graduating from high school, Alex proudly served his country in the military.
As an entrepreneur, Alex opened Al's Drapery Service in the 1970s. Alex and his wife, Kay bought Carmel's Bruno's Market and Deli in 1982. Together, the two made Bruno's one of the most renowned and successful grocery businesses Carmel has to offer today.
After suffering a stroke in 1990, Alex was a strong and courageous man who carried on. Alex enjoyed watching golf, the San Francisco Giants and 49ers, car rides on family vacations and visiting his favorite places which included Lake Tahoe, Big Sur and Yosemite. Alex will be remembered for his kindness and great smile.
