Peter James Garcia

November 10, 1986 ~ April 1, 2019 (age 32)

Peter James Garcia was found worthy to join his Heavenly Father on April 1, 2019. Peter was born Nov. 10, 1986, to Anthony Garcia and in the year 2000, Terri Garcia became his “Step Monster.”

Pete had a zest for life and wanted to do anything and everything possible. At age 16 he worked as a Covert Underage Buyer (CUB), a program with the DPS State Bureau of Investigation. His sergeant, David Moreno, said, “He was one of the best undercover CUBS I have worked with.”

Pete became a certified EMT at the age of 21, worked for Tesoro Corporation as a security officer and attended Weber State College in the criminal justice program. Pete later moved to Roanoke, Virginia, to seek employment and to care for his grandma and great-grandma.

Pete loved to hunt and fish but most of all he loved to meet new people and help them any way he could. He was always willing to help the less fortunate and underprivileged.

Pete is survived by his dad, Anthony (Terri); sister, Alicia (Viola); three step brothers, A.J. (Alyssa) Trujillo, Jason (Ashlee) Trujillo, Kasey (Krysta) Trujillo; god son and nephew, who was the light of his life, Michael Antonio Garcia; grandparents, Joe Garcia and Cora (Baga) Garcia, Gene and Carma Berrett; god parents and uncle and aunt, Greg and Ramona Garcia; uncle, Rick, and aunt Karen Garcia; uncle Bryant, and aunt Sherri Green; along with many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. Pete was proceeded in death by his grandma (Baga), and aunt Francis Garcia.
