OCTAVIO MANUEL “TAVO” GARZA

Octavio Manuel “Tavo” Garza, 79, joined our Lord in His heavenly kingdom surrounded by his loving family, on Sunday, July 23, 2023. He passed away peacefully surrounded by his wife, children and his 5 boyz whom he adored. Tavo was one of a kind. He spent part of his afternoons at the Adoration Chapel every day and prayed for everyone that was in need of prayers and made sure he checked up on each one of them. Everyone he met felt his warmth and pureness of heart. A true man of God that made one gravitate towards him. His love for his family and his passion for living will live on those that had the pleasure of knowing him.
