Alexis F. Milani

Alexis F. Milani: 1987 – 2022

It is with very heavy hearts we, Aleixis’ family, share the passing of Alexis Milani. A beloved son, brother, grandson, father and husband. Alexis had one of the biggest, softest hearts of anyone you will ever meet. He was a friend to many and never turned away someone in need, whether a friend or stranger. His smile was infectious and could light up any room.

He is preceded in death by his father, Yadollah Milani and grandfather, Brian T. Bevins.

He is survived by his wife, Hope Milani; children, Eden and Aiden Milani; mother, Lisa (Tharnwell) Pool; grandmother, Judy Bevins; siblings, Chris (Melissa) Pool, Alex Pool, and Blake Pool; as well as other relatives and friends.

For several years Alexis fought the disease of opioid addiction and tried countless times to rid himself of this demon. But, as so many families in this country know, this illness is nearly impossible to heal with or without professional help.

A Celebration of Life Gathering was held from 2:00 PM until 4:00 PM on Saturday, July 9, 2022, at Bear Trap Meadow, #29 on Casper Mountain, where he and many of his family and friends made many beautiful memories. We are asking, instead of flowers, for donations to cover expenses. If contributions exceed the cost of services, the remaining funds will go to his wife, Hope and his children, Eden and Aiden Milani. His family thanks you from the bottom of our hearts for any amount you may give.

Arrangements are under the direction of Newcomer Casper Chapel.

Rest in peace now Alexis. You are missed more than you could ever know.

Tommy J. “Tom” Sanchez

Tommy J. “Tom” Sanchez: 1961 – 2022

Tommy “Tom” Sanchez, 60, of Casper, Wyoming passed away on July 6, 2022 after battling lung disease.

Tommy was born in Worland, Wyoming to Dolores Hernandez on August 1, 1961. He was raised in southern New Mexico until he enlisted in the Navy and defended our country.

In 1998, Tommy moved to Casper where he proudly raised children that weren’t even his and befriended so many more. From his niece Tammy, nephews Chris and Guerro (Phillip), his newly acquired daughter, Tiffany and all their friends along the way; Christen, Nova, Sammy and so many others. Each kid receiving some form of life lesson.

As time progressed, Tommy quickly realized that he had met the love of his life, Judy. At that time, Tommy became a father to the rest of Judy’s children; Sally, Samantha, and Charles. Throughout the years, Tommy became grandpa to Vanessa, Isaac, Brittany, Angelique, Riella, Aiden, Caleb, Sierra and Tristan. In the typical Tommy-fashion, the grand kids didn’t stop there. He laid claim to Trinnity, Saren and Eva. His grandchildren were the most precious to him.

Tommy cherished his family and his relationships with all his nieces and nephews but always had a special place in his heart for his nephew Pnut. He would brag about the man he’s become and the incredible talents he holds within his hands and mind.

Tommy found friends in everything he did. As the owner and founder of Construction Specialties and a crane operator for various companies, Tommy was THE guy and will be missed by all.

He is preceded in death by his mother Dolores; brothers Rudy, Phillip and Andrew; sister Melissa; and granddaughter Sierra.

He is survived by his wife Judy; children: Sally (Cooder) Frazier, Samantha (Karl) Fanning, Charles (Gen) Chamblee, Tiffany (Bennie) Chamblee-Torres, and Amy (Chris) Garcia; sisters: Iris Sanchez, Gladys Jost, and Jody Lawson; brother: Leroy Sanchez; In-laws: Olin (Woodi) Tapley and Peggy (Albert) Armijo; grandchildren: Vanessa and Aiden Frazier, Brittany Miller, Isaac and Angelique Torres, Riella Fanning, Caleb and Tristan Chamblee and Rey and Sierra Garcia; great-granddaughter Stellaluna Torres; and numerous nieces and nephews.
