I met some members of your wonderful family in the Perry McStay parking lot the other day. Such great people. I was there to help make my own Mom's arrangements. It's easy to see that Chez was a great man. May he rest in God's peace. My sincere sympathy to all who loved him.

I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to Chez's family for the loss of your father, grandfather, brother or uncle. Sanchez(as I knew him) was a good guy and a lot of fun back in the day. He had a great sense of humor and was loved by many. I'm sure that he'll be missed especially by those close to him, please take comfort in the knowledge that he's with Our Lord and his pain and suffering are gone. May he rest in peace and please try to remember all of the times that he made you laugh 🙏

As the niece of Uncle Joey, I’m saddened by his loss and joyful of his memories he leaves all of us. May God take him to his final resting place in peace. I hope he will see my dad in heaven and continue to party (Frick-n-Frack) together again. Love you and will miss you dearly. ❤️
