Obituary Condolences

GARZA, DDS, Richard R.

Richard R. Garza DDS (born April 4, 1947) passed away peacefully at home November 14, 2013.

Richard received his degree from UT Dental School Houston and enjoyed a successful private practice in Austin, TX. After 24 years of private practice, his bold adventurous spirit and abundant generosity, led him to create what was to become his life long passion, Christinas Smile Inc, a non-profit organization serving under-privileged children across the country.

Known for his humor, playful personality, quick wit, and loyal friendships, Richard gave everyone a reason to smile. His love of golf offered relaxation from his fast-paced lifestyle.

He is survived by his mother, Ramona Figueroa Garza; beloved wife and best friend, Diane Garza; children, Richard Garza Jr., Amy Proffer, Patricia Riddle and Mark Garza; 7 grandchildren; siblings Ramon Garza, Reynaldo Garza, Rosario Cartwright, Rolando Garza, Ramona Garcia; his former wife, Lucila and many dear friends.

At Richard's request, there will be a private memorial. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Christina's Smile Inc.
