Santos Luis Machado

June 23, 1955 - March 16, 2016

Santos was a one-of-a-kind, very special man. His love of God was known by all. He was loving, wise, witty and had a great way with people.

He dearly loved his wife, Donna Machado; two daughters, Tiffany Rogers and Rachel Sykes; two sons-in-law, Justin and Jeremy and his grandchildren, who were the light of his life, Denyse, Melody, Nathan, Riley and Brianna. He also leaves behind a huge family that he loved with all his heart.

Many thanks to Jean Greene, sister-in-law, who was with him thru thick and thin. She was a family life-line. Also many thanks to Rachel and Jeremy Sykes, who were a tremendous help along his long journey. The Fitzgerald family has also been very helpful, as were his co-workers and customers at Golden Corral, who were of a great support. A special thanks to his doctors, nurses, hospice and Regina for all the care they provided.

Santos will be cremated and there will be a Celebration of Life at a later time.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
