Mr. Garcia had a passion for trucks. He loved watching TV shows with his family. If you ever stopped by to see him, you were stuck watching “The Walking Dead” or “Street Outlaws” and you better hope it wasn’t a rerun because he would spill the upcomng parts.
Mr. Garcia was known for his quick wit, his infectious smile and compassionate spirit.
