Chick was a story teller and an adventurer and that took him to Grand Junction, Colorado where he worked for Grey Wolf before his retirement. The last adventure he took on with his wife was his long life dream of having a taco stand, and he did in May of 2016 when he opened Tacos El Gasparin. He was a lover of music and always enjoyed playing his bass guitar. Chick made friends everywhere he went, no one was a stranger to him as he had conversations with anyone and everyone, and he always tried to lend a hand where he could. He was preceded in death by his father, Eulogio Saenz, a brother Joel Saenz, and his lifelong best friend Raul Vela. He is survived by his wife, Adela Saenz and son, Oskar Saenz both of Lakeview, daughter, Melissa and husband Antonio Cantu, three grandchildren, Tony, Edgar, and Giovanni Cantu all of Memphis, and numerous brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and friends.
