I’m one of the motorcycle club members daughter.I remember my father considered Hector his brother and we considered him an uncle.In return Hector considered my father,mother,brother and I family.I remembered going to his house almost every weekend we would hangout,he would toss the ball with my brother and I.Sometimes when we would go to his house Hector and my father would grill some steak for us.It has been really tough on us since this is the first year we have celebrated things without him,infact I don’t remember the last time we celebrated something without Hector till his passing.Hector’s passing was so tough it was the first time I saw my father cry. I know Hector is watching us and is proud of us,we have accomplished sooo much and if Hector was here he would have celebrated with us.This is all I’d like to share we will always remember him.

My deepest condolences to Hector’s family! I worked with Hector at the CBOC in Odessa and he was always ready to help in any way he could. I want to speak not only on his willingness to help but also his knowledge of how the VA worked. He was able to help countless veterans because of his knowledge and his ability to find out the answers when he didn’t know them! He was a good man and a great co worker ! He will be missed and this is for sure a loss not only to the VA but to our community! Rest easy Hector!

My condolences to Hector's family and friends. I met Hector through his work as the Veteran Service Officer, his dedication to supporting Veterans in receiving the benefits they deserved was evident in all he did. I am saddened for his family and sad for the void he has left behind for the Veterans he loved to serve. May he rest in peace. He was a truly kind man.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Thank You Hector for tacking on my Third Class Crow with that "Gusto" and "Enthusiasm" that only you could provide. I am sorry we lost contact over the years, but we will feast together again once we reunite in Heaven. Till Valhalla My Brother!

I am so sorry for your loss. I met Hector in Rota Spain. He was a remarkable person. He loved to have fun and would bend over backwards to help out a shipmate. His passion for life was his motivator. God Bless.

To the Garcia Family, I was in the Navy my first four years when I had the pleasure and honor to meet Hector. I worked side by side with Hector, played tackle football with him, and most important he was my friend. I new his late wife and his children when they where little. I enjoyed many parties that Hector held at his house, and seen the first man ever eat a pigs eye on a cracker. Yes that was Hector. I can still remember his unique and infectious laugh. I can remember how much he loved peanuts in his Dr. Pepper. I remember him as a mentor and a person who truly loved life. I am deeply saddened that he had to leave this earth so early. The world was truly a better place with him in it. I recently learned through a mutual friend about Hector, his love of motorcycles, his current wife and all of his amazing grandchildren who I am sure will truly miss him. My deepest condolences to the entire Hector Garcia family. My prayers to all of his family during this most difficult time in your lives. Hector touched many. You will be missed my friend. Bob Miller

I met Hector in 1983 when we were stationed in Rota, Spain. Some of my best memories from my time there were made when I was hanging out with him. He will be missed. Siento mucho.

Debbie, kids and family, I am sincerely sorry for your loss. I pray for peace and comfort for you all. Hector was a great family man. I was lucky enough to witness that as he started his family. We met on day 1 in Bootcamp and I never would have guessed that we would spend the next eight years together in Spain. It was because of Hector that I went. He said "let's go to Spain..... I speak Spanish!" and off we went. I learned to speak Spanish, met my wife of 35 yrs and started my own family. We shared many memories that I will cherish forever. He will be deeply missed by the many lives he has touched. Rest in Peace my Brother!

I was Blessed to have known Hector . He helped me, as well my son in VA matters. He always took the time to visit and make an extra effort to help any and all Vets, that came to his office .

You took me under your wing when I first moved to Midland and I was sad when we lost touch because I moved, but I thought of you often. You were such a good friend to me and I'll never forget that. I'll be praying for your friends and family. ♥️♥️♥️ Rest peacefully my friend.
