Roberto “Julio” Loya- Sanchez
Roberto "Julio" Loya- Sanchez, age 60, a resident of Belhaven, NC passed away Thursday, January 13, 2022 at Vidant Medical Center.
He was born September 1, 1961 to Robert and Agripina Loya-Sanchez in Chihuahua, Mexico.
Throughout Robert's life, he traveled many places and had many careers, finally settling in Eastern North Carolina as a commercial fisherman. He loved cooking and gardening, but his passion was fishing.
He was known and loved by many and always welcomed everyone with a smile.
In his life he would give his last dollar to any stranger and continued that in death by the greatest gift, organ donation.
He was preceded in death by his parents and was survived by multiple family and friends from Mexico and across the United States.
A celebration of Robert's life will be held at a later date and will be announced.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Beaufort County Humane Society, 3005 John Small Avenue, Washington, NC 27889.
