Miguel Garcia

September 22, 1952 — March 24, 2024


    Miguel Garcia age 71 was born on September 22, 1952, in ZAC, Mexico, to the parents of  Rafeal Garcia and Domitila Haro, where he grew up on a small ranch, La Cofradia, near Momax Zacatecas. He was raised by his father and mother along with his seven siblings. Farming the land with his family he learned to work hard. 

    Being he was always full of ambition and big dreams, at the incredibly early age of sixteen with little education, he came to the United States in search for a better future. He would return to Mexico to marry the love of his life, Rosalina. They moved to California permanently in 1972. With this union they had three children Victor, Angelica, and Gerardo. He came with nothing, but with only the desire to succeed. Because of his sacrifices, dedication and hard work, he was able to fulfill the American dream. In 1979 he purchased their first home in Azusa, CA and several others throughout the years. In 2014 he purchased his dream home in Covina. A ranch style where he enjoyed having lots of animals (horses, roosters, chickens, and dogs). He worked different jobs but found his career in construction. For over 30 years he would master the trade and became a superintendent. 

    Miguel enjoyed traveling with his wife and three children back to Mexico where he was born. Proudly he would show his children how life was like growing up in La Cofradia. He loved spending time with his family. Sundays were his favorite days; this is the day his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren would get together, enjoy each other's company while having Sunday dinners.

    He lost his two-year battle with cancer and passed away on March 24, 2024. He is survived by his Loving wife of 54 years Rosalina, his three children, Victor, Angelica, Gerardo, his nine grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. Miguel resided in Covina, CA at the time of his passing.
