Jerry L. Garcia 


Jerry L. Garcia

Jerry Garcia, 76, grew up in Los Lunas, but was a longtime resident of Farmington, N.M., passed on to his heavenly home on Friday, Aug. 25, 2023. 

Jerry was a friend to everyone and never knew a stranger. He served our community for more than 50 years at his business, Jerry’s Barber Shop. Every customer and friend was his family and he cherished every relationship he had. He was gifted with the ability to make people laugh and always jumped at the opportunity to do so. If you had the pleasure of meeting him, he was your friend.  

Jerry loved sports, especially baseball, and threw a no-hitter in high school. Jerry also enjoyed attending The Connie Mack World Series. 

Jerry was preceded in death by his mother, Isabel Garcia; and father, Antonio (A.K.) Garcia; his sister, Martha Aragon; brother, Tony Garcia; and nephew, Angelo Aragon. 

Those surviving, who will cherish Jerry’s memory, include, wife, Sylvia, of 30 years; children, Terri Garcia, of Chandler, Ariz., Jerome Garcia (Liz), of Los Lunas, Jason Garcia, of Los Lunas, Jeff Garcia, of Farmington, Michael Francisco, of Farmington, Anna Lane (Kris), of Farmington, Ashley Estep (Dustin), of Clarksville Tenn.; his brother, Michael Garcia, of Albuquerque; and his sister, Barbara Daniels (Archie), of Albuquerque. 

Jerry was blessed with many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. 

Jerry may no longer be with us physically but will forever live in the hearts of all those he touched in his lifetime. 

As per Jerry’s request, no funeral or memorial services will be held.
