Robert “Boo Boo” Sanchez Jr. was born on July 8, 1972 in Brady, Texas to loving parents Robert Sr. & Carolyn Sanchez.  Robert lived a passionate life and had more interests than most, including; baseball, golf, football, pool, drawing, music, tattooing, fishing, and traveling.  Robert’s first love in life was baseball, once being one of the top pitching prospects in the state of Texas. He put all of himself into everything that he did and his energy was infectious. Everyone that knew Robert was a friend, and knew that beneath his rugged exterior, lay an incredibly soft and gentle spirit.

After a serious health battle in 2012, Robert radically transformed his life. He lived his last ten years in full and on purpose, meeting the love of his life, Connie Tremont, along the way. He accomplished many new things including a promising career at HEB, and obtaining a bachelor’s degree from UTSA. In a leap of faith, he walked away from his career at HEB to start a new one at USAA.

Robert and Connie had a love that few know in a life time. They lived life to the absolute fullest together, traveling, sharing exquisite meals, and blaring Tom Petty through the night. Although Robert never had any children of his own, he proudly inherited two sons, Dylan and Step-Baylee, whom he adored. Dylan’s two children, Hazell & Zander were a great joy to Robert and he loved nothing more than filling their days with fishing and laughter.

Robert is survived by his fiancé Connie Tremont, parents Robert Sr. & Carolyn Sanchez, siblings John Sanchez Sr. & Carie Sanchez, many nieces & nephews, and an abundance of surrogate family. Family and friends invite those who knew Robert to join us for a celebration of his life.

    I’m so so sorry for ur loss. I will continue praying 🙏 for u and ur family. “The Lord is our salvation there is nothing I shall want.”

  2. Robert was not just my brother in law, the most loving man to my sister but also one of my best friends. I’ll miss your crazy humor, your big heart, the way you loved my daughters, my nephews, my entire family and especially my sister Connie. I was proud to call you part of my family and I respected you for never holding back and each day telling people what they meant to you. I will always keep you in my heart brother, for just knowing you the time that I did has made me a better man. An old fashioned drink won’t ever taste the same without you, a round of golf won’t ever be the same without you and sitting around a fire listening to Alice In Chains will never be the same without you. I’ll miss you and I love you brother. You and your family will forever be a part of mine.

  8. I met Robert when we both joined USAA at the same time and started the intense training program that began our careers at USAA. This environment forced our whole group to bond and get to know each other fast. We relied on each other and shared stories of our families and what was important to us. Robert shared with me how happy he was with his fiancé and their time together. He felt like his life was coming together and he said so with joy and genuine gratitude. Robert was kind, gentle, and had a serious side. I thoroughly enjoyed spending the moments we did as coworkers and people all struggling thru life. Our group would not be the same without Robert and my heart goes out to his family. I’m sorry for the grief you will endure and I pray God will fill you with peace and comfort until you are reunited.

  9. OH BOO BOO As I sit here today and think about all the funny things you would do and your laugh was one that could light up the darkest room. Your heart was so genuine and the most giving person I have ever met. You never said no when someone needed a favor that is what kind of man you were. and the way you looked at Connie that was a look of total bliss I am going to miss you dearly along with many. and on this day I will always think of you every time the rain comes pouring down I can hear your laugh . I will always miss you but will never forget you . My heart pours out to Connie and the entire family and friends that have lost an amazing man on earth and heaven have gained one heck of an angel above.
