Felicindo Sánchez (Cowboy), 70, died at Schneider Hospital on June 11, 2020.
He was born in Higuey, Dominican Republic, on Jan. 20, 1950, the son of the late Epifania Sanchez and Felipe Castillo.
Felicindo emigrated to St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands, in September 1987. Felicindo was a hard-worker, a trait he got from both of his parents. Felicindo began working in construction on St. John in the late ’80s. His great craftsmanship can be found in numerous homes throughout St.John.
Felicindo returned to Higuey often, where he enjoyed working on his land. Felicindo enjoyed being around his horses and many cattle in the countryside. Felicindo loved mariachi music and was a huge fan of Vicente Fernandez among many other singers. Country living was his passion, which is why he was nicknamed “Cowboy”.
Felicindo will be truly missed by his family and friends.
Felicindo leaves behind his only son, Leonardo Sánchez Castillo; four grandsons; and his sisters, Rosa, Zenaida, Victoria, Hilda; brother, Francisco Sánchez; and many nieces and nephews, and countless friends.
Mass will be on Sunday, June 21, at the Church of God in Estate Pastory, St. John. The viewing will be at 10 a.m. and Mass starts at 1 a.m.
On Thursday, June 25, his remains will be transported to Higuey, where he will be laid to rest next to his parents and sister.
