Charles Z Sanchez

December 30, 1932 ~ August 4, 2019 (age 86)


Resident of Los Gatos

Charles Sanchez, born in San Francisco, CA on December 30, 1932 went to be with our Heavenly Father on August 4, 2019 after a long and courageous battle with cancer.  He was committed to his family and his faith in God.

Charles attended Balboa High School and San Francisco State University when he met the love of his life, Phyllis. They married in Pacific Grove at St. Angela Merici Church and started their family shortly after. When he earned his real estate and broker’s licenses, Charles launched a career in real estate, maintaining active licenses to help family and friends up until his passing.  Charles loved the outdoors; summers were often spent taking road trips, camping, swimming and hiking with his young family.  Charles was actively involved in his grandchildren’s lives taking them to school, sporting events and on camping trips.  Charles enjoyed entertaining family and friends, weekend barbeques were a favorite, and watching football, basketball and baseball games.  

Charles, the family patriarch, is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Phyllis; daughters Michele, Celeste (Zoltan), (Timothy), Charlene, and Marcia; grandchildren, Garrett (Athena), Brittany (Scott), Brianna, Michael, and Buckley; and the recent addition of great-grandchild Caden, and many extended family members and dear friends.  

Family and friends are invited to a Rosary on August 8, 2019 at 7:00 pm at Darling Fischer Chapel of the Hills, 615 Santa Cruz Ave, Los Gatos and funeral Mass on August 9, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Francis Cabrini, 15333 Woodard Road, San Jose.  Burial to follow at Los Gatos Memorial Park and reception at St. Francis Cabrini Parish Hall.
