He, then, worked at Texas A&M as an a/c mechanic and for parking services where he retired in 2017. He loved everything Texas A&M. He loved working there for many years and he especially loved watching the Aggie football, baseball, and softball games. His greatest joy was spending time with his family and friends. He’s infamously known for his gatherings and celebrations whether it was a BBQ cookout, watching a football game, hosting a game night or holiday party, or making a “Garcia” breakfast. He always loved being with his big family.
