Memorial services will be held for Saul Sanchez, 39, of Roswell, at 1 p.m., Monday, Dec. 17, 2012, at the Roswell Civic Center with Joe Madrid officiating. Saul passed away on Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2012.
Saul was born in Roswell, March 7, 1973, to Bonifacio and Gloria G. Sanchez. He worked at Spring River, NMMI and Country Club golf courses until moving to Denver City, Texas, where he was the head golf professional at the Yoakum County Golf Course.
Saul loved his family and friends dearly and was full of life. He had a very special love for his father. There was never a dull moment when he was around, and anyone who knew Saul knew that he was never at a loss for words, and everyone was fair game. If an award were given for “smack talking,” we all know who would have won. He loved the game of golf and he was an avid hunter, a not-so-good dancer and a diehard Denver Broncos fan. He had a wide array of friends and lifelong friendships and touched the lives of many. He will be missed by all who knew him. Saul was a caring man who would literally help anyone in need with no expectations of payback unless, of course, he was playing cards or golfing, and the a bet was a bet. He was the King to one, a father to three, a loving son and brother, El Diablo to some and a friend to many.
Those left to cherish his memory are his wife Betty Sanchez, of the family home; his three daughters, Seairra, Byanka and Eko Fury; his father Bonifacio N. Sanchez; his siblings, Karen Sanchez and Nick Montez, Bonifacio Sanchez Jr., Vonnie Sanchez, Mike and Sonya Sanchez-Garcia and Israel Sanchez, all of Roswell; Sergio and Nancy Flores, of Odessa, Texas; Marisa Garcia, of Clovis; and numerous nieces and nephews. Although he had many friends, Neil Bhakta was his one true friend whom he considered a brother.
He was preceded in death by his mother Gloria G. Sanchez; his sister Rosemary Soto, his brothers, Frank Matta and Bobby Sanchez; and his niece Vonny (Von Von) Sanchez.
