Today has to be one of the saddest days in my life. My great friend Hector is no longer with us. I will always remember his friendship and our times together enjoying a Spurs game. I always looked forward to lunch with him. The laughs and conversations we shared will remain with me forever. God Bless you my dear friend! My condolences to the Garza family.

Hector was a wonderful, kind man who loved his family and his friends to the fullest. We had so many memorable times in San Antonio with him and Esther and their tamale garage parties at Christmas time. I loved his beautiful laugh too. He was a complete joy to be around. My deepest sympathies to his family at this time. He will be missed on this earth. xoxo

My heart goes out to one of the most influential persons in my life. A legacy husband, a legacy father, a legacy friend of many, and a legacy coworker. I know of noone who served the dairy industry in the South Texas market that had more integrity and valued reputation than Hector. You will be missed my friend.
