In Memoriam: Jorge Luis Garcia

I was saddened to learn last weekend of the death of a truly great Arizonan, Jorge Luis Garcia.  Jorge, the state Senate minority leader, was one of two Democratic candidates on the ballot for Corporation Commissioner.  He was, as the Arizona Republic well said, "a quiet champion of the little guy."

In his years at the Capitol (he served in the state House of Representatives from 1993 to 1997 and in the Senate since 2003) Jorge often eschewed partisan politics to do what he felt was right for Arizonans.

Jorge passed away last Friday, October 15 from a heart condition.  He was 57.

Visitation will be at Carillo's Tucson Mortuary, 204 S. Stone Avenue, just south of downtown, on Thursday, October 21st, from 5-10:00 p.m. The rosary will begin at 7:00 p.m.  A Funeral Mass will be held at Saints Peter and Paul Parish, 1946 E. Lee Street, located across from UMC on the Northeast corner of Lee and Campbell Avenue, on Friday, October 22nd at 10:00 a.m.
