Jose T. Garcia

April 10, 1939October 14, 2019

Jose T. Garcia passed away on October 14, 2019 at the age of 80 years old. He was born on April 10, 1939. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him, a hard-working man and loyal friend who would do anything for those in need.

Jose lived for the love of his life, Andrea, and enjoyed surrounding himself with family. He could always put a smile on everyone’s face with his prankster ways. With his sharp threads, paired with his favorite hat of the week, he will be remembered for his love of Norteño music, attending sporting events, being an avid collector of many special treasures, and always enjoying a fresh cup of coffee no matter what time of day. Jose was a lifelong resident of Corpus Christi and proud owner of JNA Laundromat in Beeville for many years.

He is reunited with his parents, Amelia and Vicente Castillo; beloved wife Andrea Garcia; daughter in law, Carla Garcia; brothers, Esequiel and Roberto.

Jose leaves his loving memories to his children, Jose Garcia Jr. (Rosa), Linda Villarreal (Leo), Pete Garcia; grandchildren: Veronica (Michael), Leo Jr. (Diana), Crystal (Robert), Joey (Nikki), Angelica, Jessica, Dominica (Michael); great grandchildren: Jason Alan, Jose Miguel, Lisa Michelle, Layla Michelle, Faith Angel, Linda Michelle, Jake Dylan, Robert Jr., Rick, Ray, Rudy; siblings: Ray Castillo, Lydia Nieto, and Gracie Fletcher.

Grandpa,
One of my fondest memories is from back when you and grandma lived in Beeville. I remember watching grandma starch your shirts and the smile you would have on your face when you would put it on. You loved to look sharp for work. You were proud of the laundromat, the community you lived in and your family. I will miss your mischievous smile and I pray that grandma was waiting for you with a freshly starched shirt.

Love always,
Veronica

Grandpa,

Every moment shared with you was a blessing that will be with me forever. Even though we lived so far apart that made the times we got to spend together better and brighter.

I'm especially grateful and blessed that we got to go see a baseball game this year in the final season at Globe Life Park as a family.

I will miss you dearly and take comfort to know that you are reunited with grandma in heaven.

We love you!

Rest in peace,

Jessica

Dad,
As we get ready to say our final goodbyes, I just wanted to let you know that you helped to make me the man that I am today. I work hard and love fiercely as you did. I pray that you are with mom, the love of your life. Although I will miss you I know that you are where you need to be and I look forward to seeing you and mom again.
Love always,
Joe

Dad,
You never looked for praises. You were never one to boost. You just went on quietly working for the one's you loved the most. You were always a firm foundation through all our storms of life. Your sturdy hand was there for us to cling on to no matter what! You were our greatest blessing! Eventhough we
really miss you, we know you are in a greater place reunited with mom and other family.
Love you forever daddy!
Linda
