TRINIDAD "TRINI" GARCIA
The Guest Book is expired.
Surrounded by caregivers who loved him dearly, Trinidad P. Garcia passed away peacefully September 26, 2013 while receiving hospice services. The angels are rejoicing as this precious soul is now able to laugh, sing, and dance to his heart's content.
"Trini," as he was affectionately called, was the only child born June 4, 1950 to Enrique Palacio and Fidelia Puentes Garcia, who have both preceded him in death.
Although he had Down's syndrome, Trini lived an active life and was cared for at home by his devoted mother, Fidelia. He captured the hearts of those who knew him, and he enjoyed many friendships and participated in Special Olympics and various day programs.
Trini is survived by his dear friends Warren, Helen, and Larry Bowen, his current staff and trainers at the San Antonio State Support Living Center, and Mrs. Charlotte Barnes, a dedicated Group Activities Center social worker in the late 1980s.
