Pedro Sanchez, Jr. Obituary

Pedro “Papo” Juan Sanchez Jr, 68, of Cromwell, husband of Linda (Spencer) Sanchez, passed away on Saturday, December 30, 2023, at home after a long battle with cancer. Born in Brooklyn, New York, he was the son of the late Pedro Juan Sanchez Sr. and the late Esther Gonzalez.

Pedro lived in Connecticut most of his life and worked in manufacturing for EIS and as a contractor for Pratt & Whitney. Pedro was a true family man. He was known for lending a helping hand to those around him. Countless family and friends were touched by his kindness. Up until his final days, he was tinkering around the house and looking for things to fix. His grandchildren would say … “Give it to Papa, he can fix it. Papa can fix anything”. Pedro was an avid Cowboys fan and enjoyed razzing Linda when they beat the Patriots.

Pedro is survived by three sons, Pedro Juan and Tina Sanchez, III (FL),  Elliot Sanchez (FL) and Allan and Andrea Sanchez (CT); two step-children, Amanda Johnston (CT) and Christopher Johnston (CT); ten siblings, Rolando Sanchez (Carina) (CT), Gamaniel Sanchez (FL), Yadira Sanchez (FL), Yolanda Sanchez (FL), Jeannie Ching (TX), Joseph Ching (TX), Michael Ching (TX), Christina Lopez  (Ruben) (TX), Frankie Santiago (TX) and Abraham Santiago (NY); eight grandchildren, Pedro Juan Sanchez, IV and Anita Sanchez (FL), Parker, Anderson, Noelle and Morgan Sanchez (CT), Caleb and Delilah Johnston (CT).

Along with his parents, Pedro is predeceased by his stepmother Bernarda Rosaria Sanchez.
