Remembering Gary Sanchez

Gary Sanchez

Gary Sanchez 1961-2014

We are deeply saddened to announce that Gary Sanchez, a member of our Personal Enrichment family died unexpectedly of a heart attack sometime Thanksgiving evening.  Gary began teaching oil pastel classes for UNMCE in 2011 and quickly added watercolor and oil painting to his repertoire. He also founded the clay creations camp for youth programs and was a tireless guide for the Story of New Mexico Program. Gary was an award winning artist; his work is currently displayed in the North Building and will be there for a few more days. A service was held on Friday, Dec. 12 at Our Lady of Belen Catholic Church, followed by burial at Our Lady of Belen Catholic Cemetery. Read Gary’s full obituary. 

Gary will be missed by his students and everyone at UNMCE.
