Jose Manuel Garcia, 42, went to live with Jesus on January 22, 2022. He was born in Mexico City, Mexico to Jose A. and Guadalupe (Cardoso) Garcia on December 18, 1979. He was a beloved husband and father, well-respected businessman, and friend to all. On July 29, 2006, Jose married his beautiful and loving wife, Diana Garcia, and was the proud father of Angel, Jose, and Noah.
Jose is survived by his older brother Santiago (Claudia) Garcia and sisters Maria Magdalena (Jose Daniel) Albarran, Maria de la Luz (Armando) Gonzaga, and Elizabeth (Jose Luis) Andrade, as well as his extended family and an abundance of friends. The indescribable emptiness felt by his absence is only filled with the thought of reuniting with him in heaven and seeing his bright blue eyes and charming smile again.
Everyone and anyone who knew Jose was touched by his kindness, goofiness, and positive outlook on life. Ever since a young age, he was a big dreamer and risk-taker. This is what led him to start his own company, Accurate Paving, Inc., 20 years ago, and being accredited by the Better Business Bureau since 2009. Regardless of the challenge or request, he gave his all to ensure he exceeded all expectations whether for himself or others. Jose enjoyed playing basketball with his sons, listening to loud music, riding motorcycles, and collecting cars. No matter the circumstance, you'd always leave with a story of something funny he did while you were with him. He left us too soon, but he left a legacy of strength, dedication, hard work, and great adventure.
Jose, our love and memory of you will continue to burn until we meet again.
I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.
And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.
