Christopher Lee Garcia
The world became brighter on June 16, 1981, the day that Christopher Lee Garcia was born in Dallas, Texas to Roberto and Ermelinda (Linda) Garcia. Christopher sadly passed on September 24, 2022, after a beautiful and loving life. We are saddened by this tragic loss, but we are uplifted knowing our beloved son, brother, and father, is now with the angels and saints in Heaven.
He is now reunited with those we’ve lost before him and his beloved service dog Jake. He and Jake were partners in crime and lived life to the fullest. He missed Jake everyday so we take comfort knowing they will be reunited.
Chris left high school in 2002 to chase his dreams to serve in the US Army. He served for 10 years during which he deployed 3 times to Iraq. He had a wonderful career with the military and met so many brothers in arms that he called family. He left the Army in 2012 with numerous medals and citations. He was a true patriot. Upon his return, Chris continued to grow his family to three young men whom he loved very much. Chris moved to Florida to go to school and eventually he worked with motorcycles and enjoyed his experiences working with service dogs. Chris had many talents some to include forging and building weapons, glass blowing and carpentry work, wood burning and leather working. He liked both open water and hard-hat diving. He was constantly learning he would pick up a hobby learn everything he could about it and move on to the next. He enjoyed old western movies, reading and painting. He was good with math and loved science and he loved watching rockets launch from the Cape and would post the launches on Facebook so we could all enjoy them as well. He definingly was an adventurous soul. He loved taking road trips on either his Harley-Davidson or his Jeep. He loved the adventure of being outdoors; walking, hiking, and going to the beach. He loved camping and sleeping under the stars. He was always making corny jokes and making people laugh and always brought a smile to everyone’s face.
Chris comes from a very large family that will forever hold him in our hearts. Chris was a family man. He was very protective of his family. He was hardheaded and head strong, stubborn, loyal and always loving. He is gone but never forgotten. Chris you may be gone from our sight, but you are never gone from our hearts.
He is survived by his parents Robert & Linda Garcia, His sons Corey Dylan Garcia, Tyler Cole Hughes-Garcia, & Christian Gabriel Garcia, his brothers Roberto Antonio “Anthony” Garcia and his wife Sarah Beth Glogowski, Jonathan Alexander Garcia, Grandmother Margarita C. Mena, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. We miss you more each day.

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Thank you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you. Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad. Love, The Gillilands

I didn’t grow up with Chris, but later learned that we were siblings and we spent years getting to know each other and connecting. I loved him as my brother. He will be missed.
Our Condolences, prayers of comfort and peace to the ramily.
Chris, I wish I could be there in TX. To his family im sorry for your loss. Chris and I go back to my early days in the Army. We had a conversation on how I wanted to learn how to ride a motorcycle. A lady had recently bumped into Chris on his bike cause minor damage. He said to me, “Come by and I’ll show you how to ride. If you drop it no problem I already have to put it in the shop. They can fix that too.” That day was the beginning of my riding days which has become my outlet. Chris, you gave me my outlet and love you for that. This isn’t bye but, a see you later!
We are so sorry for your loss and our thoughts are with you all.
Chris was one of the finest humans I ever met-
A man of few words , but a man of action.
Your loved and missed by SO MANY Brother.
Until Valhalla ♥️
