David Garcia, 55, longtime resident of the Southwest side of Chicago, born in Mexico City, Mexico on March 4, 1964 to mother Evangelina Lopez-Fernandez and father Thomas Garcia, whose legacy is carried on by his loving children Minerva Vidal Garcia, Abram David Garcia, Gabriel Moises Garcia, Ian Jeremiah Garcia, and beloved grandchildren Mia Prisaius Madrigal and Gael Moises Garcia-Morones.

David lived life with a great tenacity, he loved playing sports and being
active with family 10k+ runs, soccer, tennis, obstacle course races, hikes
through nature, and all forms of family and fitness activities; he loved all
genres of music, but his favorite was rock such as: Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Ozzy
Osbourne, Black Sabbath, Nirvana, Linkin Park, and many many more.

David always carried an easy-going demeanor and fun-loving attitude on life;
he was a friend to all living things: people, animals, and plants alike.
David loved to share his time and anything he could to help the less
fortunate, he loved to ride his motorcycle in the Toys-for-Tots parade, he
enjoyed volunteering his time to feed the hungry, and was always looking for
causes to donate to and support.

David Garcia is known as one of the strongest people to all who know and
love him, he overcame insurmountable odds and created an incredible legacy
through his life and family. With his strength and wisdom in life, David
Garcia was always an empowering force to everyone he met, he knew everyone's
strengths more than they knew their own abilities.

David's contributions in his life are reflective of the epitome of
generational progress - he gave his all to ensure that his children and
grandchildren can continue to build the family name. All of David's children
are highly educated (Resurrection University - Chicago; DePaul University -
Chicago, Roosevelt University - Chicago; Northeastern Illinois University -
Chicago, Columbia University - New York) and will ensure that his
grandchildren, great grandchildren, and beyond will all continue the GARCIA
legacy and David will always be recognized as the pivotal force that
propelled his family into the dreams he always had for us.

David's life will forever be celebrated by all his family and friends;
beloved life partner Monica Chavez; stepfather Jesse Lopez; siblings Thomas,
Caridad, Rogelio, Lola, Betti, and Victor-Hugo; as well as his precious dog
