Saenz, Gabriel



Gabriel Saenz left the world after only 32 years with deep love for his son, wife, family, friends and clients. He loved hiking in the Sandia mountains and was teaching his 18-month-old son to love the outdoors as well. Gabriel met his life-partner, wife and soul mate in Perth, Australia, and she followed him to Albuquerque, where he had lived most of his life. Gabe's love of fitness and health made him a wonderful health coach who inspired clients and friends. He had the capacity to push himself to the limits in physical endeavors, while also being a voracious reader and researcher. In all that he did, he imbued life with his childlike sense of fun. Adults and children alike were drawn to him and picked up a sense of adventure in his presence. Gabriel left this world suddenly on September 8, 2017, and his humor, intellectual keenness, affection, charm and loving nature are deeply missed.

Gabriel is survived by his wife, Kerry Greer, his son Raphael, his sisters Sonya Corley and Raquel Saenz and brother Fred Saenz, and his parents Irene Ortiz and Sigifredo Saenz.

A memorial will be held in his honor at the Elena Gallegos Picnic Area in the Kiwanis Reservation Area at 10:30am on Friday, September 15, 2017. All are welcome and requested to dress in white.
