Moses made his appearance on June 21, 1943 in San Parlita, Texas and the world was never the same.  He worked as an auto painter, painting large diesel trucks for many years. He enjoyed working on cars and took pride in his painting skills. “6 Gear’s” life was full of laughter and law breaking. He enjoyed boxing, barbequing and drinking beer….lots of beer. He was always up for a good time whether it was legal or not. Racing his car down the back street was not uncommon for Moses. When there was a road trip to be had, he would stand on his front porch with his bags ready to go. Moses was nicknamed “6 Geer” because during a road trip, every time the car would go into 6th gear, Moses had to pee. Maybe it was the long stretch of open road, maybe it was all the potholes or perhaps the amount of beer he was drinking. Short trips seem to turn into long trips with Moses. You also knew where you stood with Moses, he was blunt and did not hold back his opinion. He always told you the truth even if it wasn’t what you wanted to hear. The party never started until Moses arrived. He had a PhD in partying. He could out party anybody at any age. Moses laughed his way through life and enjoyed every minute of it. All kidding aside, he will be very missed by his family and all who were lucky enough to party with him.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Pedro and Petra Garcia, brothers, Eloy Garcia and Rocky Garcia; sisters, Gloria Ramierz and Olga Lozanos; step-sisters, Mary Helen Mansfield and Ophelia Mullins; step-brothers, David Garcia, Noah Garcia, and Ernest Garcia.

Moses is survived by his loving wife of 48 years, Fay Garcia; children, Mark Gonzales and his wife, Lois; Michael Gonzalez and his wife, Maria, Moses Garcia Jr., Tony Garcia, Michael Garcia, Sharon Simms and her husband, Oscar and Michael Garcia; grandchildren, Michael, Robert, Alexis, Chelsea, Austen and Alexander and Yuritzi; great-grandchildren, Paul, Alyssa, Jackie, Kingston, and Karson; brothers, Hermino Garcia and his wife Juanita and Luis Garcia and his wife, Myra and many other relatives and friends.
