Loving Husband, Brother and Uncle
Javier Garcia, 53, of Fort Worth, Texas passed away on Monday, July 22, 2019. Javier was born on November 19, 1965 in Rotan, Texas to Adela and Francisco Garcia. Javier was a Christian man with strong faith; he believed in the peace and everlasting life that would await after his life on earth. Javier married the love of his life, Rebecca Garcia on July 18, 1995. He spent every day with her and loved her unconditionally. He enjoyed romantic walks with her around Cabela’s looking for new fishing string and fishing poles. Javier and Rebecca spent many mornings at the dining table enjoying each other’s company over a fresh cup of coffee.
Javier enjoyed having fellowships at his house with his family and uncle, Amadeo and aunt, Ana. He was the type of man that the family just gravitated to, didn’t matter the time or day, his door was always open for his family to stop for a hot meal or a place to stay. You would find Javier in the kitchen or on the grill, he enjoyed making briskets and ribs. He also loved making tamales with his brother Jorge (deceased) and sisters Sandra(deceased), Mary and Hilda and other family members; he mastered adding the perfect amount of meat into the tamale. Javier could often be found in deep thought making small hearts with his finger on his right knee.
He took extreme pride in his fishing skills; he loved camping and fishing with his wife and nephews Frankie, Vincent and Anthony. You could find him on the bank of lake Tawakoni with his sunglasses on and a pole in the water. He was such a jokester, even on his worst days he would crack a joke just to make his family laugh. He loved to use his PS4 remote controller to flip between YouTube videos and animal planet. In the mid 90’s Javier took on the card game Texas Hold Em’ and later taught his nieces and nephews to play. Because of his super competitive spirit, he especially enjoyed beating his nephew Tony and taking his money. Although he didn’t have any kids of his own, his niece Amber was like a daughter to him. He and her had an inseparable bond. Javier loved sports; he and his nephew Santos would have heated debates at times on whose basketball team was the best. He enjoyed playing football with the boys (his nephews) or just passing the football back and forth out in the street. These are all fond memories that will live in our hearts.
Javier’s family would best describe him as a big teddy bear, with a heart of gold and hilarious personality.
Javier is survived by his wife, Rebecca Garcia; his sister, Mary Perez; his brother-in-law, Ehden Perez; his sister, Hilda Vargas; his brother-in-law, Rene Vargas Sr.; his sister-in-law, Norma Garcia; and many nieces and nephews including great nieces and nephews.
