Adrian Ventura Garcia


Adrian "Kilu" Garcia, 27, was one of the most beautiful people, inside and out. He was always the life of the party, and he loved to make people smile. Adrian was born in Salinas, the third of four siblings.

He was a server at 'La Casa del Sazon," but his true passions were art and music and riding his bicycle. He enjoyed going to local Metal shows and spending time with his family and friends. He graduated from North Salinas High School in 2004 and attended the Academy of Arts University of San Francisco. He was truly genuine and free spirited, and he will be greatly missed.

Adrian was preceded in death by his Tia Linda Rodriguez, Tio Manuel Hernandez, Tio Guillermo Rodriguez and Tia Gloria R. Murillo.

Adrian is survived by his mother, Maria G. Rodriguez; his brother, Javier Garcia; his sisters, Brianna Kurtow (George), Marcella G. Flores (Mario); his nephews, Aaron and Matthew; his girlfriend, Eliana Coronel; his maternal grandmother, many aunts and uncles, cousins and countless friends.

Visitation will be held from 1 to 9 p.m. Thursday, July 10, 2014, with a Rosary recital at 7 p.m., all at Healey Mortuary, 405 N. Sanborn Road, Salinas, CA 93905.

A Funeral Mass will take place at 1:30 p.m. Friday, July 11, 2014, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 22 Stone St., Salinas, CA 93905.

Adrian, I did not know you personally but each time we came into the restaurant where you worked you were always very courteous and attentive. Hearing the news of your passing really hurt my heart and my prayers and condolences go out to your family. I know that you are in much better place now but you will be missed.

The morning I got the call I don't wanna believe it. Not Kilu. It still feels like a bad dream that I can't wake up from. How are we suppose live without you, how is MaNina suppose live without you. It's not fair that you were taken away so soon, we were all supposed to grow old together, watching A-A-RON & Mateo grow up. It hurts knowing they will never truly know you, see you smile or Crack a joke but we'll tell them great stories about their awesome Tio Kilu.
I know you're ok now, the pain is gone. Give a big hug to my Mamá Gloria for me, also my Tia Linda, we all miss them. Take care of everyone here left behind. I'm not great with goodbyes, so know that I love you dearly, miss you so much it hurts and I'll see you again some day. Love you Kilu?
