Patrick "Chris" Daugherty

Patrick “Chris” Daugherty: December 14, 1978 – January 27, 2023

Patrick “Chris” Daugherty, 44, of Cheyenne, passed at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center surrounded by his loving family.

He was born on December 14, 1978, in Los Angeles, CA to Robert “Mohawk Mike” Daugherty and Debra Daugherty.

Chris was a talented and well-loved tattoo artist in the Cheyenne community working alongside his daughter, Sage. He was always striving to get better in every way.

Aside from his tattoo work, he also enjoyed making hot sauces with his wife and had a dream of helping students learn the importance of art by letting them draw their own masterpieces in which he planned to put on T-shirts.

He married his love, Colette, in the fall of 2022 and spent all of the time he wasn’t working with Colette and also with his daughter, Bella. Chris was an inspiration to many, and through his art and creativity, he connected with people.

Even with his wonderfully amazing mind, expressing himself through words wasn’t really a strong trait. Good thing his art was fantastic!

He is survived by his loving wofe, Colette; parents, Mike and Debra; step-mom, Cindy; children, Sage Daugherty, Sebastyn Daugherty, and Isabella Capner; brothers, Robert “Mikey” and Daniel Daugherty; sister, Deirdre Daugherty; uncle, Bill Daugherty and grandmother Margaret Daugherty.

Chris was preceded in death by his brother, Shannon Daugherty.

There will be a viewing at Wiederspahn-Radomsky Chapel on February 2, 2023 from 10am to 4pm and his service will be held on February 3, 2023 at 5pm, also at Wiederspahn-Radomsky Chapel.

Louis Michael Sandoval

Louis Michael Sandoval: September 5, 1956 – January 20, 2023

It is with profound sadness that the family of Louis “Louie” Sandoval announce his peaceful passing on January 20, 2023 at the age of 66 years. Louie was born on September 5, 1956 in Cheyenne, WY to Agnes and Timoteo Sandoval. He worked as a Trades Technician for the State of Wyoming, Department of Administration & Information for 10 years.

Louie liked to make people laugh, even in tough times. As a “people person” he always had a smile on his face and a funny story to tell. No matter what was going on, if Louie was in the crowd you could be sure you were going to laugh.  I am certain the man had never met a stranger.  He became fast friends with almost anyone he met.

He is preceded in death by his parents Agnes and Timoteo Sandoval; Sisters Theresa (Charles) Armstrong, Helen (Harl) Doty, and brothers Samuel Sandoval, Eddie (Theresa) Sandoval.  Louie is survived by his sisters Irene Llamas and Cleo Mason; brothers Gilbert (Lora) Sandoval, Steven Sandoval, and Jose (Carmen) Sandoval; plus, several nieces, nephews, cousins, his good friend Melinda Hurt and all his friends.
