Paul Garcia Sigala, 87, of Lockeford passed away at his home on Saturday, April 6, 2013. He was born on May 21, 1925 in Porterville, CA. Mr. Sigala was very active and respected with the County of Santa Clara where he worked as a supervisor with the G.S.A. He retired in the late 1970's and had one of the largest retirement parties ever seen in the county. With a good since of humor he always joked that all he needed was to win a million dollars. He enjoyed reading whatever he could get his hands on and especially enjoyed studying American Indians (Apaches), going to Pow Wow's and car rides. He was most excited about the arrival of his newest great grandson. Mr. Sigala loved spending time with his grandchildren and his dog Chi Chi.
