Stevan E. Sanchez Obituary
Sanchez, Stevan E.

Stevan E. Sanchez, born on December 12th, 1959 (the feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe) passed away on July 3rd surrounded by family. By teaching us how to die with strength, courage, dignity and faith, he has taught us all to live in the same manner.

Stevan is survived by his wife Diana Sanchez; sons Matthew Sanchez and Emily Gallo, and Daniel Sanchez; his parents Cecilio E. Sanchez and Liduvina C. Sanchez; his two brothers, Christopher Sanchez and wife Denise; Donald Sanchez and wife Angela; his two sisters Elisa Sanchez Wilkinson and husband Charles; Deanna Sanchez-Mulcahy and husband Mitch; his stepchildren Yvette Sanchez and her husband Chris, James Valdez, Tammy Valdez and Jason Sena, Jason Valdez and his wife Erica; as well as many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nephews, nieces, godchildren, and countless friends who love and respect him.

Steve is preceded in death by his son, Joseph Samuel.

He loved spending time with family and had a great sense of humor. Steve was very straightforward and always "told it like it was." His viewpoint and logical thinking often helped others to get a new perspective on an issue. As one of his friends, Joel, shared, "Steve taught me a lot about how to be a man." Stevan had a career working in the lab at Home-Stake Mining near Grants, as a chemist with Eberline, and most recently as a Quality Assurance Supervisor at Wall Colmony.

A Rosary in honor of Stevan will be held at 7pm on Friday, July 8, 2016 at Holy Rosary Catholic Church. A Mass will be held on Saturday, July 9, 2016 at 9am at Holy Rosary Catholic Church.
