Obituary

Jesus “Not the Lord” Garza, 72, departed from this Earth November 21, 2021. He was born June 16, 1949. Master mechanic, part time comedian, and full-time grandpa, Jesus was known for his abilities to fix anything with an engine and make everyone around laugh. His jokes and pranks worked their ways into everyone’s hearts and he took great lengths to get everyone to laugh. He even went as far as buying fake gag teeth and snot to prank everyone. The only thing that exceeded these abilities was the love he had for his three children, nine grandchildren and his beautiful wife of 44 years, Elena. Swept off her feet in 1977, their love endured on until his last breath, and will go on forever. His greatest joys in life were his family, muscle cars, and a great joke. His memories and love will live on through his grandchildren, children and the countless friends that enjoyed a laugh with him.

Jesus is survived by his wife Elena Garza; sons, Jesus Garza Jr. and Javier (Marivel Martinez) Garza; and his only daughter, Jennifer Marie (Juan Martinez) Garza. He is also survived by nine grandchildren, Jesus Garza III, Baroc Garza, Alyssa Garza, Mia Bella Garza, Deuce Garza, Evelyn “Boss” Garza, Damian Villalpando, Ebony Villalpando, Emery Villalpando; and numerous nieces and nephews that loved him. Also surviving Jesus are his brothers, Francisco (Maria) Garza, Jr., Ricardo (Lupe) Garza, Erineo (Alexis) Garza, Hugo (Renee) Garza, Juan (Jan) Garza; and sister, Aurora (Eduardo) Hermosillo. He is preceded in death by his Father and Mother Francisco and Maria Garza; brothers, Jose Garza, Miguel Garza, Jacinto Garza, and Thomas Garza; sisters, Maria Solis, and Nicholasa Garza. It’s with his sense of humor that I end this with one of El Jefe’s quotes, “Turn off the lights, the party’s over.”
