Born in Bishop, TX to Francisco Garcia and Eva Bartola Pena, Eduardo served as a sergeant in the Army Air Corps, and eventually graduated from Texas A&I in Kingsville. A job as an accounting professor at Laredo Junior College moved him to Laredo where he spent most of his adult life. In his later years he moved to San Antonio where he was loved and cared for by his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. He was a passionate man who was proud of his family's accomplishments. He enjoyed educating and teaching his students, and shared a love of woodworking and travel as his hobbies.

He is also survived by his children Eddie (Betty) Garcia, Joe (Kay) Garcia, David Garcia, Amber (Michael) Irby, Mark (Belinda) Garcia, 11 grandchildren, and 8 great-grandchildren.
