Raymond Jordan Garcia
April 28, 1964 - April 28, 2014
Raymond Jordan Garcia "Pappy" of Grand Junction, CO went to his Heavenly home on his 50th birthday, April 28, 2014.
Raymond was born in Monte Vista, Colorado on April 28, 1964, to Raymond and Elizabeth (Montoya) Garcia. He graduated from Center High School in 1982. On May 18, 1985, he married his forever love, Carla (McClure) Garcia. They raised three beautiful children together. Raymond was employed with the Grand Junction Regional Center for almost 25 years.
He was an amazing husband, father, and Pappy. His love of the Lord and his family were always his first priorities. He enjoyed all kinds of activities in the CO outdoors. He especially enjoyed going on motorcycle rides with Carla riding along with him. He made friends wherever he went and his friends became like family. His generosity blessed many and he extended love to even strangers, who then became his friends. His love and generosity continued even after his end of life here on Earth as he was able to "Give the Gift of Life" through organ donation, something that he strongly supported and advocated for.
Raymond is survived by his wife, Carla Garcia; his son, Chris Garcia; his daughters, Katherine (Jason) Henson and Analisa (Bryce Smith) Garcia; his mother, Elizabeth Garcia; his brother, Tim Garcia; his sisters, Cynthia (Sam) Aguilar and Kimberly Garcia; his grandchildren, Cambria and Korbin Henson and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his father, Raymond Garcia and his grandparents.
A Celebration of Life Service will take place at Jubilee Family Church, located at 483 30 Road on Tuesday, May 6, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. Pastor David Crowley from the Gathering Church will be officiating. There will be a time of fellowship and remembrance for all to attend immediately following the service. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Mesa Funeral Service.
