Carlos was born to parents Casto and Tommy Sanchez on November 13, 1957, in Lockney, Texas. Carlos met and married the love of his life, Mary W. Foy in Enterprise, Oregon in 2008. He loved his work as a landscaper, as he enjoyed being able to work outdoors. He worked for Scott and Becky Rushton for eight years at the Indian Lodge Motel and the Outlaw Restaurant in Joseph. Carlos's favorite saying was "If it's not work I ain't got time for that."
He loved watching westerns, fishing, taking walks and working. If he wasn't working he wasn't happy. Carlos will be remembered by those he loved and he is loved by those who will remember him. He endured much in his life, but always stayed true to who he was. He shall be remembered for his kind and generous heart.
Carlos is survived by his wife Mary W. Foy and his 10 children. Jennifer L. Sanchez-Williams, Kristi Chandler, Michael Sanchez, Erika Roberts, Jessica Leupitz, Jesse Sanchez from previous marriages.
