Maison Paul Sanz, 20, of Morehead City, passed away Friday, November 8, 2019, at Duke University Hospital in Durham.
A memorial service for Maison will be held at 3 p.m. on Friday, November 15, 2019, at One Harbor Church in Morehead City, officiated by Rev. Ryan Marshall.
Maison was a well-known resilient young man that touched many lives leaving an imprint of inspiration behind. He was born with what doctors’ thought would be a short life expectancy due to unimaginable medical conditions. Even as a newborn, Maison persevered and was ready for battle from day one. Despite everything Maison had to go through, he had such a meekness about himself that inspired every person that he encountered. Maison had quirkiness about himself that would light up any room and leave everyone smiling. One thing is certain; Maison did not fight his battle alone. He was surrounded by an endless supply of love and support that was able to carry him at times of weakness. In the last 6 months of his plentiful life his body became exhausted and his battle came to a halt. With peace, Maison ended his battle here on earth to begin the journey he always aspired and deserved in Heaven. Even though it is easy to find peace in knowing Maison isn’t waking up for battle every morning, we could not begin to fathom having to go through life without him.
He is survived by his mother, Jada Forcier and husband Tommy of the home; father, Paul Sanz and companion Breyl of Greenville, NC; sisters, Ashley Radford of Snow Hill, NC and Kaylee Forcier of Morehead City, NC; maternal grandmother, Doris Johnson and husband David of Hookerton, NC; paternal grandmother, Mercy Sanz of Ayden, NC; grandmother, Susan Forcier of Newport, NC; and grandfather, Thomas Forcier Sr. of Strafford, CT; aunts and uncles, Elizabeth Steele (Jason Flowers), Beth Pernell (Trey Knight), Jennifer Stancil (Michael), Brandon Johnson (Laura), Danny Forcier (Nicole), Jennifer Tencza (Michael), Drew Forcier and Abby Forcier; cousins, Josh Johnson, Jared McLawhorn, Chase Pernell, Marshal McLawhorn, Madison Spencer, Olivia Steele, Genevieve Johnson, Michael Tencza Jr., Lucas Tencza and Mia McLawhorn; niece and nephews, Chelsea Bishop, Liam Bishop, Colby Bishop; special friends, Hayden Alvis, Paige Winter, Justice Elite Dance, Morehead City Fire Department and Pine Knoll Shores Fire Department.
