Jeremy Sanchez passed away on Monday, December 27, 2021 at Hospice of East Texas.

Jeremy was born July 8, 1971 in Arlington, Texas to Charles and Connie Sanchez.

Jeremy was a very intelligent person. There was nothing he couldn't do. He loved anything that had to do with automotive. He worked for Engines Express for 18 years. Over time, his coworkers had started to become family. He was very dedicated to his job. Even in his last days, he still continued to show up to work. He loved drag racing and dirt track the most. Later on in life, he embraced the outdoors more, and found a love for shooting guns and hunting as his main hobbies. The most important thing in his life was his family. He never put himself above anyone else. He was a well-loved Christian man, and found his comfort and solstice in his love for God. We know that in his final moments, he was comforable, at peace, and ready to be with his Grandma.

Jeremy was my uncle who always made time to help and be there for me when I was growing up. He was a Great role model in my life. I have wonderful memories of my aunt and him taking me to the drag strip and just spending time with me. He once helped me rebuild my 68 Chevelle when I was 18. He taught me so much that I will never forget not just about cars but about life. I love you and you will always be in my heart ❤

Sometimes the flower is fading with Petals floating down.
But God knows the perfect time to gather flowers from the ground.
