“Mr Garcia” is how I always greeted & spoke to “Larry”, simply because in my eyes he earned and deserved that kind of respect. He was not only professional in working environments, but carried himself with dignity and poise throughout his lifetime. He was reserved, quiet, but always would be listening. When he did speak it always had relevance. He was proud of his accomplishments but his Children & Grandchildren meant the most to him because they were in his “Picture Frame” of his life.
His Smile, voice, and especially his Laugh left an impression on me as well as others that will be his Legacy we all get to keep with us. He gave that to all the ones who made him feel Loved as well. Prayers to the Garcia family. Thank You all for letting me share in and be a part of his life. Rest Easy Larry, you are home now...a better place... one in which we know will care for you now that we can no longer do so here.

Uncle Larry would light up and get so animated when he talked about his Grand Daughter's he especially loved telling us about their time on the golf course.
He would talk about what a good time they had riding in the golf cart and how great of a swing they have... He was very proud of the Golfers they were turning into. Love you and will miss you Uncle Larry.
