RIO HONDO, TX. -|
Anastacio ``Tacho' Garza, Jr., 70, entered the Lord's kingdom on July 2, 2012.
Tacho was born to Anastacio Sr. and Maria Garza on August 5, 1941 and was a lifetime resident of Las Yescas.
Tacho was a proud Bobcat who graduated from Rio Hondo High School in 1959. He was an avid sports fan and enjoyed talking with friends and family. Being the social person he was, he always left with a new friend; never did he meet a stranger.

Garza (Erica); brothers: Gilberto, Ernesto and sister Ernestina; extended daughter-in-law Carlene. He is also survived by his loving grandchildren who were the loves of his life: Matthew, Jenna, Virginia-Ann, Nicolas, Alainie, Gabriel, Carlie, Lillian, and Avery; and great-granddaughter Hailey, along with numerous relatives and a host of friends.
