Guillermo “Wile” Garcia
Guillermo “Wile” Garcia, 55, passed away on Saturday, December 26, 2015 in Laredo, Texas. Our beloved son, father, grandfather and uncle, Guillermo Garcia went home to be with Our Lord after a long battle with his ailing sickness. He endured many years of medical problems but never one to complain. His body was broken but never his spirit. He always had a smile and a positive word to say every time to everyone. His outlook on life was “The glass is never half empty but always half full.” One of his favorite things to do was play softball and go fishing. He was also an avid Elvis Presley fan. Music always brought joy to his spirit. He was an excellent son, brother, father, grandfather and uncle. His children and his grandchildren were his pride and joy. His faith in our Lord Jesus Christ kept him going. He will be greatly missed by many relatives and friends. His memory will live with us forever. Always remember what he said, “I ain’t here for a long time, I’m here for a good time.”
He is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Isabel and Roberto Garcia; maternal grandparents, Ignacio Jalomo and Consuelo Martinez Jalomo; cousin, Jesus Santos, III.
