He is survived by his loving wife Trang, his children from his first relationship Justin Sarmiento and Manuel Sarmiento; children from his second relationship with Violet Marie Tan May-Ling Oquias, Sui-Ling Sarmiento-Tan, Ee-Ling Sarmiento and Emilio Sarmiento; and Precious Sarmiento; sisters Remy Morales of Worden, Mercy Hall of Lansing, Michigan, Angie Benam of LA, California, Fran Flores of Greeley, Colorado and only brother Andy Sarmiento of Bozeman; and 29 nieces and 27 nephews.
He will be forever missed by all that knew him, family and friends. He lived life to the fullest. He travelled the world, no matter where he was there is a story for each place. He enjoyed cooking. He believed he was a culinary artist and his food showed his skills. If he was at home cooking up a storm, his family would be there by his side helping in the preparation in whatever feast he was making. You didn’t have to worry about the amount of food being served, as when he was cooking there was always an abundance of food.
His work as a directional driller has taken him to places that people would only dream of going, as well as places people would never dream of going. He has met so many people, and touched the lives of these people in a special way.
Services will be held on Thursday November 14, 2019 at 11:00 at St. Cyril & Methodious Catholic Church, Ballantine, MT.
