Raul Garcia is the man that helped build who I am today. He was strong, wise, hardworking, dedicated and loved. I will always love and miss my Dad, and will forever remember and cherish his bright smile and everything he taught me in life. Rest in Peace Papa. Hugs and love to the whole family from me and mine in Texas. Rebecca (Becky) Garcia-Twin B
I never met Raul but I've worked with his daughter Julie - as a result I know he was a loving and successful father. My prayers are with the Garcia family
My wife Jane and I had the honor and good fortune of spending time with Raul and Blanca on several occasions over the past several years. My son, Chris, has been dating Julie, who has become a loving member of our family! Raul always had the greatest smile on his face and was just fun to be around. He and Blanca generously provided us with vegetables from their marvelous garden. He will surely be missed! Thank you Raul and God bless! Go Cubs!
