If anyone ever cared, really cared for someone else, it would have to be Federico Miguel Garcia, Jr. He was a warm hearted and well liked individual, and these wonderful traits came easily to him because he was such a sociable and amiable person, someone who was always making certain that those around him had whatever they needed. Federico was a talkative person who was tactful at all times but typically said what he meant.

Federico was born on June 6, 1949 in Brooklyn, New York to Federico and Antonia Garcia. Federico was raised in Brooklyn with three siblings: two brothers, Richard and David, and one sister, Jackie. During his childhood he learned to be reliable and respectful. Federico was an obedient child who wanted to win the favor of others. He found it easy to show sympathy and to perform kind acts for others. Though Federico was frequently the one to initiate games and activities with his family, he was also quite often the family member who took the role of referee. Federico was a peace-maker with an ability to resolve all sorts of family conflicts. These admirable qualities would become a part of Federico's personality throughout his life. Federico was a faithful and loving person. Some would even call him sentimental and a romantic at heart. His kindness and consideration radiated an aura of warmth to those around his. Federico cared for what others thought and carried that into his marriage. On September 14, 1985 Federico married Susana Espiritu at Columban Church of Olangapo City, Philippines. Compassionate and devoted, Federico worked hard to make his new life partner happy.

Harmony was important to Federico and he made every effort to maintain it with his family. Federico was blessed with one son, Christopher. Federico was always conscious of the feelings others had. He was reasonable and understanding. As a result, Federico was quick to solve disputes and did so without much fuss. His secret of success in this area was simple: Federico would listen before he would act.

Blessed with a practical nature, Federico was a person who appreciated the routine of the military. He was a man who took his obligations seriously, working well with the others in his unit. Federico was a Marine Corps Veteran. Federico saw action during the Vietnam War. Through his hard work and dedication, he achieved the rank of Gunnery Sergeant.

Taking his work seriously came naturally to Federico, and he expected the same from those around him. His primary occupation was as a food and beverage manager. Federico was a good team player, someone who was born to cooperate with others. He was what some would call a “people person” and it was demonstrated in his good communication skills. He was a steady worker and could understand the details without getting lost in the broad “big picture.” He brought harmony to his work environment, doing what was necessary in order to get the job done, while always maintaining respect for his colleagues.

Since it was easy for Federico to meet and get to know new people, he quickly made friends, even in retirement. Once he met those new friends, he loved sharing stories and talking about the good old days. Since he was practical and cost effective, Federico was ready when that day to retire finally came in 2016. His new life involved relocating to Las Vegas. Even in retirement, Federico stayed in touch with his old friends and made plenty of new acquaintances. He was active in the community and felt fulfilled with the opportunities that retirement offered him.

Federico passed away on April 19, 2019 at Infinity Hospice in Las Vegas, Nevada after fighting a brave battle against cancer. He is survived by his wife, Susana; his son, Christopher; and his brothers and sister. Services were held at Palm Southwest Mortuary in Las Vegas. Federico was laid to rest at the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Boulder City, Nevada.

Federico was a fantastic conversationalist who could engage just about anyone in a discussion. And whenever he said something, he meant it. Federico was a down to earth person, outgoing and gregarious. He was without question the type of person who enjoyed experiencing things first hand. He was practical and sensible, but what friends and family will remember him for most is the fact that he was so understanding and kind. Everyone whose life he touched will miss Federico Miguel Garcia, Jr.
