PHOENIX (AP) - Carlos Manuel Sandoval lived for decades in Phoenix on the edge of the Sonoran Desert, but he never stopped hearing the siren call of his birthplace - Guaymas, Mexico.

He kept his home in Phoenix for his wife, whose mother and sisters lived there, and his children, where they married and started their own families.

Known as Don Manuel, Sandoval was 65 when he died June 30 of complications from COVID-19. By then, he had nine grandchildren, two great-grandkids and a body marked with scars from various operations, including two kidney transplants.
