Henry passed peacefully at home on Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2013, from advanced melanoma cancer. He was born in Lawrence, Mass., to Felix and Mary Garcia. His 40-year career with Pacific Gas and Electric began in the early 1960s, leading him from San Francisco to San Jose and eventually he settled in Placerville in 1978. As a man of many talents and skills, he was always busy. His selflessness, sense of humor and commitment to family and friends will be dearly missed. He is survived by his siblings, Ann and Ed; son, Henry Joseph; niece, Rena; nephew, Tiler; and great-niece, Hope; not to mention countless extended family and friends who shared his journey through life.
A reception will be held at 1 p.m., on Monday, Oc. 14, in Gurnell Hall at St. Patrick Church, 3109 Sacramento Street in Placerville, following a private service for the immediate family. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the following charities: Paralyzed Veterans of America, Donation Processing Center, P.O. Box 758532, Topeka, KS 66675-8532 (pva.org); St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis, TN 38105 (stjude.org); or the American Cancer Society, P.O.
