Benavides, Texas -Amado Garcia, 71 years of age was called home with our Heavenly Father on July 17th 2018 surrounded by his family after a short illness. Daddy was a fellow Marine, Loving Father, Son, Dad, Papo, friend and wonderful husband. He loved working on cars, trucks, tractors and any problem that had a mechanical issue. There was not a tractor Daddy could not take apart and put back together.
Daddy retired from the Naval Air Station- Kingsville as a Captain Firefighter after 30 years of service. After his retirement, Daddy enjoyed peddling in the yard, the ranch, spending time with his family and his faithful companion, his dog Reba.
Daddy became a super-user of Facebook and Google. Give him the phone and a stylus and he found what he was looking for. His grandchildren and children were the light of his eyes. He always enjoyed hearing about the next roping, shooting event and their next adventure. Simple pleasures for a simple kind, hearted man.
Daddy was preceded in death by his parents, Octavio and Belen R. Garcia, his brother Octavio Garcia Jr., his son Jody A. Garcia, and his in – laws Salvador and Manuela Chavez. Daddy is survived by his wife of 47 years of marriage, Anita Garcia, his son Amado (Leticia) Garcia JR of Freer, Texas; his daughter Virginia (Bruce) Menking of Alice, Texas. His sisters Gloria (Frank) Saenz of Benavides, Texas and Graciela (+Roberto) Garcia of San Jose Community.

My deepest condolences to the family. Having lost of a family member is one of the painful heartaches I have ever experienced. He reminds me of my grandfather who also had passed away, one year ago. Reading this blog reminds me of him because they have a lot of similarities like living things that are related to mechanical issues. I wish he rest in peace with the Heavenly Father. I do hope that the family will still move on and go on with life full of blessings.
