Tommy “Tom” Sanchez, 60, of Casper, Wyoming passed away on July 6, 2022 after battling lung disease.
Tommy was born in Worland, Wyoming to Dolores Hernandez on August 1, 1961. He was raised in southern New Mexico until he enlisted in the Navy and defended our country.
In 1998, Tommy moved to Casper where he proudly raised children that weren’t even his and befriended so many more. From his niece Tammy, nephews Chris and Guerro (Phillip), his newly acquired daughter, Tiffany and all their friends along the way; Christen, Nova, Sammy and so many others. Each kid receiving some form of life lesson.
As time progressed, Tommy quickly realized that he had met the love of his life, Judy. At that time, Tommy became a father to the rest of Judy’s children; Sally, Samantha, and Charles. Throughout the years, Tommy became grandpa to Vanessa, Isaac, Brittany, Angelique, Riella, Aiden, Caleb, Sierra and Tristan. In the typical Tommy-fashion, the grand kids didn’t stop there. He laid claim to Trinnity, Saren and Eva. His grandchildren were the most precious to him.
Tommy cherished his family and his relationships with all his nieces and nephews but always had a special place in his heart for his nephew Pnut. He would brag about the man he’s become and the incredible talents he holds within his hands and mind.
Tommy found friends in everything he did. As the owner and founder of Construction Specialties and a crane operator for various companies, Tommy was THE guy and will be missed by all.
He is preceded in death by his mother Dolores; brothers Rudy, Phillip and Andrew; sister Melissa; and granddaughter Sierra.
He is survived by his wife Judy; children: Sally (Cooder) Frazier, Samantha (Karl) Fanning, Charles (Gen) Chamblee, Tiffany (Bennie) Chamblee-Torres, and Amy (Chris) Garcia; sisters: Iris Sanchez, Gladys Jost, and Jody Lawson; brother: Leroy Sanchez; In-laws: Olin (Woodi) Tapley and Peggy (Albert) Armijo; grandchildren: Vanessa and Aiden Frazier, Brittany Miller, Isaac and Angelique Torres, Riella Fanning, Caleb and Tristan Chamblee and Rey and Sierra Garcia; great-granddaughter Stellaluna Torres; and numerous nieces and nephews.
The family would like to give a special thanks to Scott and Katrina Zimmerschied, Mike Harden and Nicki Shosten.
