Juan Atilano Sanchez passed on December 26,2021 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He was born on August 5, 1944 to Daniel Sanchez and Romona Baca.
Juan enjoyed his life in the service he went many places and would like to tell stories of the places he had been. When he was feeling good he would even speak in French reminding himself of the things he use to do in France. Juan enjoyed fishing and working on his truck but his greatest enjoyment was hanging out with his friends and doing whatever he wanted to do. He was most proud of his time he spent in the Air Force and working as an mechanic on the C135s everyone who knew Juan heard a story or two of his travels and missions in the Air Force. He loved his wife pancha with all his heart and looked forward to being with her again in heaven. As Juan got older he was a solitary man he liked spending his days with his fur babies cruising around and taking care of his business. He will be greatly missed by his friends and family.
