Juan Carlos Garcia, of San Marcos, passed away on Sunday, Aug. 19, 2018 at the age of 54. A beloved husband, father, grandfather, friend, and bodybuilder extraordinaire, Carlos brought joy, laughter, encouragement, and hope to the lives of many and was an inspiration to all. A pillar of strength and courage, a bright and shining light in the world, Carlos will be remembered fondly as a man of great compassion, generosity, charisma, optimism, humor, faith, and resiliency – an honorable man with a heart of gold. Carlos was love in human form.
