Mr. Daniel Sanchez, 61, husband of Maria Elena Renteria Sanchez and a resident of Parksley, VA, passed away Thursday, October 10, 2019, surrounded by loved ones. Born September 28, 1958 in Wilkes Barre, PA and raised on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, he was a son of the late Francisco Bracero Sanchez, Sr. and Santos Sepeda Sanchez.
Danny loved gardening and especially enjoyed cruising the Shore’s backroads, but family always remained the center of his world. There was nothing he wouldn’t do for those closest to him, and he never missed an opportunity to show his family how much he loved them. Adored by his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, there was always fun and laughter when they were with their “Grandpa.” With his kind and gentle heart, Danny made an impression on all he encountered and was loved by so many throughout the community. His presence will be greatly missed and his memory forever cherished.
In addition to his loving wife of 32 years, he is survived by his children, Guadalupe of Racine, WI, Armando and Lisa of San Antonio, TX, Arnulfo of Pasadena, MD, Elena and Camerino of Parksley, Juliana of Belle Haven, VA, Rodolfo and Nikki of Parksley, and Daniel and Andria of Fishers, IN; nephew, Javier Cruz of Parksley, who he raised as a son; brother, Francisco B. Sanchez, Jr. and Sylvia of Clewiston, FL; grandchildren, Antonio, Yesenia, Yvette, Amaya, Lucero, Abigail, Alayna, Briana, Mikayla, Jazmin, Kaitlyn, Madelyn, and Mikenna; and great-grandchildren, Lorenzo, Dominic, and Mariana; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, cousins, great-nieces, great-nephews, and countless friends. Other than his parents, he was predeceased by his sisters, Debbie and Petra Sanchez; and nieces, Nicomeris Sanchez and Melissa Cruz.
