In his spare time, Sanchez coached plays such as baseball, basketball and softball at the Boys and Girls Club in McAllen, according to KGBT. He too experienced having barbeques and movie nighttimes with his family, his obituary says.
“He relinquished his sleep to go ahead and take care of what we as their own families might not have been able to take care of- just for our own consolation, ” Zachary Sanchez said at his funeral.
“He has always been the definition of the role model of what I wanted to be, ” Zachary added.
Cesar Torres, the Edinburg Police Department chief, said he was in the audience when Sanchez graduated from the police academy and “I could see that he was built to be a trooper.”
“This life is not about who you are, what plight you have, how much coin you offset, what various kinds of house you live in, what kind of car you drive, ” he said at Sanchez’s funeral. “This life is about loving God, being humble, desiring your family and your friends.”
Torres included: “That is exactly who Moises Sanchez was. That is exactly how we are going to remember him.”div >
