TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - After a father is murdered and his daughter is accused of his death, co-workers and friends try to raise money and support for the family. They are holding a car wash for the Sanchez family all weekend.
"He would always come in and make us laugh dancing in the office saying you don't look too happy today what's going on than he would start dancing in the office or trying to make us smile," said Kesha Sixkiller, a co-worker of Sanchez.
Smiling and dancing are two things co-workers will always remember about Andres Sanchez, better known to family and friends as Andrew. Most co-workers only knew Sanchez for a few years but say they're out here washing cars and raising money for his family because of his kindness and lively spirit.
"A guy that always provided for his family, you know he was always there for his family and this is the only way we can pay him back for what he did for us," said Eddie Aros, a co-worker of Sanchez.
Sanchez was murdered last week near his home. Police arrested his 16-year-old daughter Clarissa Sanchez and 19-year-old Larry Coronado as the two suspects. His family is trying to deal with the loss of their father and husband and figure out what happened with his daughter.
"Is there any reason why someone would want to hurt Andrew?" asked KGUN9 Reporter Ileana Diaz.
"You know I couldn't even answer that for you. I don't think anyone could, cause the way it happened you know we don't know details," said Aros.
Sanchez' wife and other three daughters didn't want to go on camera but are thankful to have so much support. His coworkers are trying to help the Sanchez family with their finances but say it's hard for everyone to make sense of what is going on.
"He would tell us about his daughters and how much he loved them and how proud he was of them and so it was just unbelievable for something like this to happen," said Aros.
Co-workers, family and friends will be at the Autozone near Benson Highway and Campbell Avenue all day Saturday and Sunday and are accepting donations for a car wash.
