James Patrick Garcia

Peacefully and surrounded by his family, James Patrick Garcia passed away on Tuesday, November 22nd at the age of 70 after a brief illness.

James was born in Bossier City, LA at Barksdale Airforce Base on May 13,1952 and enjoyed the rest of his life in Shreveport, LA with his wonderful family and friends. He graduated from Fair Park High School in 1971, and it was here that he would meet his love and life partner, Charlotte. They were married in 1973 at Holy Rosary Catholic Church and went on to raise a beautiful family that was his forever heart and soul. James worked as a Manufacturing Technician for Western Electric, AT&T and later Avaya. His later ventures in life included studying AutoCAD at Bossier Parish Community College and owning two small landscaping and vending businesses. He was an avid sports fan of the Pittsburgh Pirates and the LSU Fighting Tigers, but his true passion in life was making memories with his loved ones. He was also a member of the Knights of Columbus. His peaceful and gentle spirit will continue to live on in the many hearts that he touched throughout his 70 years with us.
