Hugo P. Garcia was welcomed in our Lord’s heavenly kingdom on Thursday, February 25, 2021. He was 79 years old.
Hugo was born on August 04, 1941 in Guerrero, Tamaulipas, México. Like many of his generation, Hugo left Laredo in 1957 for the Midwest in search of work and opportunity. After working briefly in manufacturing in the suburbs of Chicago, IL, Hugo returned to Laredo in 1976 where he enrolled in Laredo Junior College; earning his journeyman electrician certification. For the next four decades, Hugo worked in Laredo as a Master Electrician, eventually opening up his business—Hugo Garcia Electric, Inc.—with his wife in 1989. In that time, Hugo established a reputation for his humble, hardworking demeanor, earning him a leadership role on the Electrical Examining Advisory Board for the City of Laredo.
Whether it was at the ranch with a good carne asada or at family gatherings, “Papá”, as his grandchildren called him, delighted in his time spent with family and friends. Those who knew Hugo, know of his affinity for rancheras, country music, and the dance floor. For many years, Hugo could be seen with his kids, and later grandkids, at the Laredo International Fair and Exposition, showcasing what had become a family tradition of raising animals.
Hugo was preceded in death by his parents, Pedro and Francisca Garcia; siblings, Amelia Rodriguez, Jaime, Guillermina, and Gilberto Garcia; and parents-in-law, Abel, Sr. and Florencia Flores Vidaurri.
Hugo is survived by his loving wife of 55 years, Selinda Vidaurri Garcia and three children: Marco Antonio (Carmen), Hugo David (Cynthia), and Selinda Marisa (Joseph) Garcia. He is also survived by his eight grandchildren: Joseph Michael, Alicia Marie, Alexis Florencia, Andres David, Andrea Sophia, Ashley Nicole, Kaylee Lynn, and Amy Victoria Garcia; and siblings Guillermo (Rosalinda) and Ricardo (Altagracia) Garcia; and numerous relatives and friends.
