Obituary

Ricardo Basilio Sanchez
03-30-1941 ~ 03-13-2020
Ricardo Basilio Sanchez, 78, of Greeley, CO went to be with the Lord on March 13, 2020.
He was born to Basilio (Josephine) Sanchez on March 30, 1941 in Compton, CA. He completed the 11th grade at Jordan High School before meeting and marrying Rachel Gonzalez in Greeley, CO on November 12, 1974. He worked for Metal Gold, sanitation, Banner Health’s environmental services, Construction, and as a purchasing agent for R & R Donnelly. He worked machinery and did many things with his hands. He loved buying lotto tickets and always put his family first. He used to say, “taste my wife’s food, you’ll love it”, and “MAN, I’M BLESSED”. He used to house homeless people (40 of them) in his home over the years. A sucker for helping others in need, fed the hungry, gave drink to the thirsty, clothed the needy, prayed for the sick, took in the homeless, gave to the helpless, fathered the fatherless, provided rides for those on the journey, and gave from what he had on him. He raised himself, escaped death more than once from being struck with a hammer on his head, overdosing on drugs, head on collisions, pneumonia and raising 2 very strong-willed young women. He was born premature, ran away from the priest –life, But God... still used him to evangelize to others even before he gave his life to Christ
Prayed for and with construction workers, victims of abuse, gang bangers, runaways, doctors, patients, grocery store clerks, and strangers off the street. He spoke my love language: taking out the trash and buying me shoes. He spoke my sister’s love language: taking a drive and listening to rock music. But he spoke my mom’s love language the most: telling her that the food was amazing, and doing the dishes.
He taught us the art of a good hustle to make ends meet, and to laugh in the face of difficult situations
He blessed his children and grandchildren and prayed for them every day
He asked the Lord to watch over his family; that all could come to know Christ
He always checked out refrigerators to make sure we had enough. And if we didn’t mom would make us food and they’d bring it over with joy
He taught hit us how to spell Love: T-I-M-E. If you knew him, you often heard: Pick up, Look out, Get this, Eeee hue sue, Tas loco, Get down little brotha, Alright, You are my world, What a bummer, For reals? He lived to visit his kids& grandkids and friends. He loved when people would come over to enjoy a meal or coffee. Favorite hymn: Because He lives
Life Celebration Service: Monday, March 23, 2:00pm at New Hope Church, Greeley, CO. To leave condolences for Ricardo Sanchez’s family, www.adamsoncares.com.
