Mr. Faustino "Tinoy" Sanchez Genio, age 91 of Henderson, NV was called home to be with the Lord on Friday, December 22, 2023, with family by his side.

He worked as an accountant in Manila and took a position in a private High School, teaching Mathematics and PMT (Philippines Military Training).

He longed to have a better life for his wife, Niely, and 7 children. He applied to the American Embassy to become one of the few immigrants to come to the United States and two years later, he was approved. With only $100 in his pocket in 1971, he set out to San Francisco, then on to Reno, NV where he eventually was able to bring his wife and kids over the following 3 years. He always considered this a miracle and went on to raise his children in Reno.

He then worked at University of Nevada Reno in Maintenance for another 15 years where he eventually retired. He moved to Henderson, NV in 2003.

Faustino was a great family man and loved taking the family to Pyramid Lake for fishing, taking short trips to San Francisco and Lake Tahoe. He was also a devout Catholic taking his family every Sunday to attend mass at St Mary of the Mountains Church in Virginia City, NV. He was proud of all his children, all becoming successful in their field.

In his younger years, Faustino was a great singer and performer in his home town in Naga City, Philippines. He was the lead singer in an Opera known as Lucia De La Mermour. He had a beautiful voice and everyone enjoyed listening to him sing on many occasions. He was also a champion Chess Player in the Philippines.
