Adrian Sanchez was born on June 20, 1985, in Long Beach, CA, and passed away on March 14, 2023, at the age of 37 years old. Adrian was the son of Griselda Sanchez and Pedro Sanchez. His father is a truck driver and his mother is a loving stay at home mom. He is survived by Pedro Sanchez (Father), Griselda Sanchez (Mother), Katherine (girlfriend), Peter & Araceli Sanchez (Brother & Sister-in-Law), Abraham & Griselda Ramirez (Brother & Sister-in-Law), Luis & Ruby Rosales (Brother-in-law & Sister) Walter and Liz Sanchez (Brother & Sister-in-law) He was Uncle to Yaretzy, Zoey, Aria, Mila, Dario, and Emiliano.

Adrian went to high school at Banning High School in California and graduated in 2003. But that is not where Adrian's work life began. Adrian not only was a smart rebellious kid, but he also discovered his passion at a very young age. He began his music career when he was 8 years old. He began playing the piano with his dad, which later began the band LOS PITUFOS. Which basically was made for the 3 brothers to play together. They were a great hit in and near Long Beach. At a later age of 10 years old Adrian discovered that his true passion was playing the guitar. Let me tell you he was fabulous at it! That boy could play any song by ear, his musician roots run deep in his blood! Adrian played with Los Piratas de Durango, Hechizeros, and La Banda Toro. In his teenage years Adrian discovered that he was not only good at playing instruments (piano, drums & guitar), but also composing songs and he was a second voice, very good at that too! Adrian was a jack of all trades not only was he great in music & fishing that boy could cast a net, but he also later developed a passion for food. He joined culinary school and was in the process of finishing that goal. He also worked in construction with his brother, that's where we found out that he did not only have a great voice, but that boy was super strong there was no task he was given that he couldn't complete! He was our kindhearted giant. Adrian loved playing soccer & Xbox those where some of his favorite pastimes. Fun fact about Adrian in Long Beach he is known for driving his red van and he was a 49ers fan at heart, obviously he couldn't be perfect! But Adrian had a passion, and nothing was going to stop that passion. Music was what he lived on, that was his natural drug that gave him the drive to live and pull forward. He wanted to become a musician and he was not going to let that die. The only problem was that God had better projects in store for him & he was taken from this world too quickly.

He will be remembered for his love of life! His smile that could be seen for miles away, his musician skills (He could play them Chords!), his all-around good sense of humor, his love for nature and his humongous heart. Adrian was a giver at heart. Adrian new how to Love and he did not let time go by without showing it. Adrian will be missed dearly!
