OBITUARY: Matthew Sanchez

Matthew Clinton Sanchez, 39 of Questa was called home to be with the Lord on Sunday, Dec. 4, 2022. He was born Nov. 6, 1983 in Questa to Ronnie D. Sanchez and Roberta Campbell. Matthew loved the outdoors and spent a lot of time doing outdoor activities. He loved to cook for his family and recently perfected his favorite tortellini recipe. Above all, he loved his family. He had the biggest heart and would give his shirt off his back to anyone who needed it.


Matthew is preceded in death by his parents Ronnie and Roberta, paternal grandparents John and Viola Sanchez and maternal grandparents Dennis and Betty Taylor.


He is survived by his fiance Ashley Medeiros-Sanchez, his children Matthew Jr, Jeffrey, and Cataleya Sanchez; brothers Carlos Sanchez and Steven Archuleta; mother-in-law Pamela Medeiros, uncles Steve Sanchez (Maryann), Gary Sanchez (Maxine), John Sanchez (Maida), Michael Taylor; aunts Arlene Sanchez, Geraldine Cordova (Edwin), Annette Sanchez, Raynelle Cordova (Mike); and numerous cousins and friends. A memorial for Matthew will be held at a later date.
