Carlos Sanchez Memorial Fund

Juan Carlos Sanchez 
April 25,1973 - September 25, 2017

He was the kind of person that made you feel like the most important person to him. He listened to you and gave you love. He would also give you a little shade if you deserved it. 

Carlos loved to dance. He could dance all night and through the next day. House music was his soul mate. He danced with the most well known club kids and friends from the neighborhood, making everyone feel like an equal.

He came dressed to impress or to make an impression. From the striped pilatzo pants and platforms to jeans and tee, it was always put together like a page from a fashion magazine. 

Carlos knew hair. He would look at you for about two minutes and immediately he knew what would look best on you. You could give him your suggestions, but he really did know what was best and you might do better just letting him do his thing.

From shaved, to afro, to bleach blonde, and everything in between. Carlos was not afraid of taking chances with his own hair. And to be honest, he always looked amazing.

Carlos will be dearly missed by so many, especially his family. Along with the pain of losing their son, brother, uncle, nephew, comes the expense of laying him to rest. We ask that you help ease the burden by making a donation to this memorial fund. All proceeds will go directly to the Sanchez family via his brother Xavier.

Thank you for helping to make such a difficult time just a tad easier for the Sanchez family.

Love and Light

I am an old friend of Carlos' (Juan Carlos Sanchez). We've known each other since 1990. He lived in my apartment on Union Street and we did all the fun things you do in 20s together with an incredible circle of friends.

This gofund page is managed by me, Gabrielle Napolitano-Swift, but the funds will be allocated DIRECTLY to Carlos' brother, Francisco Javier Sanchez (also known as Javier Sanchez or Xavier Sanchez), to pay for all of the funeral expenses. Javier is the beneficiary of this account.
