Martin Garcia Jr.

Our beloved brother Martin Garcia, Jr., age 60, resident of Burnet, was called by our Heavenly Father on Saturday, Jan. 3, 2015. Our brother Martin was a loving, fun, hard working and crazy kind of person. His work-included custodian duties, work with cement, landscaping and cooking. His TV schedule was like clockwork, Monday and Friday nights were for WWE wrestling, Saturday was Texas Longhorn football and Sunday was Dallas Cowboys football. Although he did not go to the Burnet football games, he knew sisters Gloria and Suzanne were going to be there and would give him play-by-play details. We would like to thank the Eucharist Ministers from Our Mother of Sorrows Catholic Church, the staff at Oaks Nursing Home and Rehab, the staff at Seton Highland Lakes Hospital in Burnet and especially the nurses in the ICU at Seton-Williamson Medical Center, Round Rock, for their dedicated services and care for our brother. He was preceded in death by his father, Martin H.
