John Anthony Sanchez Obituary

John Anthony Sanchez was called home to be with the Lord on Good Friday April 3, 2015.

"Uncle John" as the family affectionately called him was born in Los Angeles, Calif., April 14, 1965. He was raised in Alamogordo. He attended Alamogordo High School and served in the Army National guard and received an honorable discharge.
He was raised on the famous "Oregon Street" block where he was known as "Ants". Those, who don't know about Oregon Street, it was neighborhood with a very tight group of kids who, even until the day of his death, were part of his life.

Anthony was always known as a free spirit. Frankly, he was a hell raiser known to be the life of the party. He knew how to have a good time and enjoyed life with family and friends.
His family would like to tell you another side of Anthony. On Good Friday we lost a good son, brother and uncle. He didn't have much and even less to give; but what he did give came from the heart and was most likely made with his two hands. He was a very accomplished artist and made beautiful art work. His illness prevented him from enjoying his true passions of hunting and fishing. He had an impeccable reputation as a carpenter, painter and drywall installer. Although you didn't hear him say "I love you," he loved with his heart and soul.

Anthony leaves behind his parents Raymond and Stella Diaz of Alamogordo; sisters Lorena (Sanchez) Chavez and Robert Bernal of Alamogordo; Josephine Rue of Ruidoso; Lisa (Sanchez) Vargas and her husband Ariel Vargas of Roswell; Missy (Sanchez) Diaz of Phoenix, Ariz.; Robin (Diaz) Harcrow and her husband Billy Harcrow of North Bend, Wash.; brother Ruben Diaz and his wife Angela Diaz of Snoqualmie, Wash. He also left behind numerous nephews and nieces, including: Carlos and Isaac Chavez; Jesse Ray, Desaray and Audryanna Barraza; Elizabeth Jackson; Jaylon and Nehemiah Harcrow; Aubryanna, Cierra and Tatum Diaz, and Nick, Shawn and Britney Rue.

Anthony would have liked nothing better than a celebration with friends and family to commemorate his life at his parents, pending his wish of cremation. For more information on this celebration contact Lorena Chavez at 575-921-2927.
