Nacho is survived by his wife of 40 years, Cynthia Ramirez Garcia of the home; his father Ignacio Garcia, Sr., KCK, one sister, Linda Garcia Ramirez (Mark) and two brothers, Jesse and John Garcia, all of Kansas City, KS. Brothers In Law: Jesse (Veronica), Rudy, Richard (Sherri), Alex (Idi) Ramirez. Sisters In Law: Leticia Spencer (Michael), Gloria Fileto (Clemente) and many Godchildren, nieces and nephews. As a young boy Nacho loved the game of baseball and played with the Pee Wee Sluggers. At the age of 16 he began playing fast-pitch softball with the Kansas City Angles. He was a pitcher who had a passion for the sport. He was inducted into the Mexican-American Softball Hall of Fame. He was the avid Kansas City Chiefs, Royals, Soccer and Missouri Tiger fan. Nacho was a great channel flipper, when there was more than one game on. He was always reading the sports page. He had a humble heart, yet always encouraged others. Nacho was blessed to enjoy being a Godfather and was very proud of all of them. When it came to the Godchildren, nieces and nephews, he would take the time to go see them play sports and other school activities. A special thank you to Tessa Marie who checked in with her nino daily to ensure he was doing fine and remind him of his daily tasks. Although he had plenty of family, he loved his extended family, the Guseynovo's. A trip to the movies was nice, yet vacations were a must. His family time during these outings were precious. If it were a trip to the lake, the lines couldn't hit the water fast enough, Nacho loved fishing. Other trips were always special no matter where as long as it was with family. These were always on the calendar. Sometimes it may be a long drive, yet it was all worth it. The battle is real, but with God and family you can get through anything. Thank you for your love, kind words and support through Nacho's battle with cancer. With Sincere Love, Nacho's family!
