Biography of Arturo A. Sanchez

Arturo Sanchez, Sr. was born on November 30, 1913, in Los Angeles. His parents were a poor, struggling family who worked in the fields picking walnuts, oranges, lemons and other crops. He attended Bonita High School where he directed the band and also became a tennis champion. He received a musical scholarship to Pasadena Music Conservatory.

In 1952, the young family moved to Norwalk, where they bought the family store near their home, named Sanchez and Sons. When Arturo was not on the road performing at music clubs, he was at home entertaining with his six children. At every dedication ceremony for Norwalk's stores and institutions, the Sanchez Family would delight the people with their songs and dances.
