Michael Garcia Obituary
April 22, 1951 - March 25, 2017 Michael Garcia passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 25, 2017 in his daughter's home, at the age of 65. Michael was born April 22, 1951 in Los Angeles, California to the late Leonzo and Enedina Garcia. He graduated with a Master's in Sociology in 1980. In 1981, Michael was married to Gloria Gastellu, in Ventura, California. He worked as President and organizer of SEIU International Union and USWW Local 1877, where he dedicated his career to the rights of service employees, immigrants, and the working class of our communities. When he wasn't walking picket lines or sitting in negotiations, he loved nothing more than to be surrounded by his family. He enjoyed the outdoors, traveling, sports, reading, and his wife's cooking. His kind and giving heart was the foundation of his success and influence in his professional and personal life. He is survived by his wife Gloria; his son, Henry; his daughter and son-in-law, Estrella and Ron; his daughter and daughter-in-law, Susana and Anna; and last, his three grandchildren (Denee, Naima, and Nakai) and great-granddaughter (Breanna).
