Loss of colleague and friend Joe Sanchez

November 16, 2010

To Fellow Trojans,

It is with deep sadness that I advise you of the passing of Joe Sanchez on Saturday afternoon (Nov 13).

Since 2002, Joe faithfully served as the Transportation and Equipment Manager of the Mobile Dental Clinic. He ensured the safe delivery and performance of all equipment and vehicles associated with the Mobile Clinic so that our students could care for underserved children in the community. His dedication to the Mobile Clinic motivated him to be involved in all aspects of the Mobile Clinic’s operation including finding new sites where there was need. Joe will be greatly missed as a vital member of our Mobile Clinic Team and as a loyal and hardworking friend.

A memorial service for Joe will be held Tuesday, Dec 7, 2010 from 5:00-6:00 PM at USC United University Church, 817 W. 34th St, Los Angeles CA 90007. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be made in Joe’s name to the USC Mobile Dental Clinic. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.
