Obituary for Eduardo Vega Garcia Sr.

Eduardo Vega Garcia, age 66, went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, May 18, 2019, after a courageous battle with cancer. He passed on peacefully surrounded by his beloved wife, sons, family, and close friends. During his final days, Mr. Garcia dedicated his time praying with his wife and family. He always showed strength and hope and comforted everyone near him by assuring them he would be okay as he would be with his Heavenly Father.

Mr. Garcia was born on May 10, 1953, in Mexicali, B.C., Mexico. To family and friends, he was known as “Cory”. He married his soul mate, Benita Garcia, in November of 1974. Together, they built a family and a unit of friends in their community for the past 43 years while residing in Coachella, CA.

Mr. Garcia worked for the City of Indio in the Public Works Department and later with the Indio Police Department in the Code Enforcement Unit as a Graffiti Abatement Officer for 18 years prior to his retirement. Anyone who saw Mr. Garcia while he was on or off duty, was definitely greeted and acknowledged by him as he enjoyed talking to people in general. He made sure to wave at everyone with a ready smile because that was him — friendly, happy, giving, adventurous, kind, and always optimistic.

Mr. Garcia was the type of gentleman who was of great service to family, friends, and the public. He enjoyed helping in any way he could whether it be gardening, fixing sprinkler systems, offering a jump start, giving someone a ride, opening his home to someone in need, assisting people to get back on their feet, and just simply offering moral support and guidance.

One of just many things that family and friends will remember Mr. Garcia by, is how passionate he was of soccer. He loved his sport secondary to how much he loved his wife and family. He was the biggest fan to his team by cheering and clapping on when his team scored a goal and with no doubt, his high spirits echoed all over his home.

In his spare time off work, Mr. Garcia loved spending time with family, gardening, swimming, collecting items, taking walks and drives around his community, riding his golf cart, listening to music, dancing, and participating in his son’s and grandchildren’s extracurricular activities. Mr. Garcia was a very proud husband, father, and grandfather. He was also that favorite uncle to many for he was always there to help and share his ideas and enthusiasm on current events and on life in general.

Survivors include his wife Benita Garcia, son CA State Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia Jr, son Ivan Garcia, and five grandchildren, He was preceded in death by his father Agustin Garcia and his mother Maria Elena Vega Garcia.

Visitation will take place at Our Lady Of Soledad Catholic Church in Coachella from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. on Tuesday, May 28, 2019. The mass is scheduled for Wednesday, May 29, 2019, at 12:00 pm in the same church. Burial to follow at the Coachella Valley Cemetery.

Mr. Garcia will be greatly missed by those who had the honor to share life with him, but the abundant memories and his distinctive laughter will always remain in each and everyone’s hearts.
