George Garcia, 69, passed away unexpectedly on February 15, 2017, at UTMB hospital after falling ill.
Born October 29, 1947, in McAllen, TX, he was the son to George Garcia and Mary Alice Fisher. Shortly after graduating Ball High School in Galveston, TX, he joined the U.S. Navy to serve in the Vietnam War from September 22, 1966, to September 26, 1968.
George is survived by his son, Anthony George Garcia; daughter, Kimberly Perry; grandchildren, Abriana Arevalo and Mason Perry; brother, Leonard Garcia; and ex-wife, Selena Garcia.
George was a longtime resident of Galveston, TX, and surrounding areas, where he enjoyed fishing, grilling, riding motorcycles, and making people laugh. To those that knew him best, he’ll be remembered most for his sense of humor and huge heart.
The Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, February 25, 2017, at Carnes Funeral Home 3100 Gulf Freeway, 77591. Visitation will be from 2:00-3:30pm, followed by an hour long service.
