Timothy Manning Sanchez
1971 - 2017
Authentic, kind, caring, loving, funny, and irreverent are just a few of the words that describe Timothy Manning Sanchez (aka, Tim, Timmy, Uncle Tim, Timo). Tim was a loving and devoted son, brother, uncle and friend and was a very bright light in our lives. He was always there to make you laugh, lend a hand, and be a shoulder to cry on when you needed.
As many people would tell you, he was the life of the party. His quick wit and outgoing personality drew you in and didn’t let go. Tim also had a quieter, introspective side. He would think deeply about the woes of the world, share his philosophical inklings, and have amazing discussions with you on a variety of topics.
Tim was so smart and had a number of different professions – writer, singer, chef, comedian, actor, model, ‘manny’ (male nanny), restaurant manager, and of course bartender. He enjoyed cooking for friends and family, a good stiff drink, and spending time at the beach. In the last few years, Tim had grown especially close to his nieces and nephews and he truly loved them dearly and cherished the time he spent with them.
Tim passed away on Saturday, October 14, 2017. A native of Santa Barbara, Tim was born at Cottage Hospital on June 25, 1971. He attended a variety of schools – Harding, San Roque, Mount Carmel, Our Lady Queen of the Angels High School Seminary, and Bishop Garcia Diego. He is preceded in death by his two older brothers, Matt and Keith Sanchez. He leaves behind his parents, Sally and Bob Sanchez; siblings and their spouses Antoinette and Richard Munoz, Renee Sanchez, James and Tonya Sanchez, Karen and Lucas Bamberger; his beautiful God daughter Miranda, and many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, a huge extended family and many, many friends. He was loved deeply and will truly be missed.
Services will be held at Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church on Fri., 10/20 – Rosary at 7:00 pm; and Sat., 10/21 – Mass at 9:00 am.
