January 14, 1953 - August 25, 2021
Tony Garcia, 68, of Topeka lost his battle with Covid-19 and passed away peacefully, Aug, 25, with his 3 kids at his side. He was born on January 14, 1953 in Pueblo, CO to Joe and Hermelina Garcia.
Tony was a devoted father, husband, grandpa, mentor, and friend to many. He was a jack of all trades, and master of most. He enjoyed traveling, family gatherings, and answering the call for help on home projects, always with a smile on his face. But most of all, his greatest joy was sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with his friends and family.
Tony had a servant’s heart. He spent 32 years with the Topeka Fire Department, retiring in 2012 as a Shift Commander. In addition to the fire department, he served the Topeka community in numerous other civil service positions over his career.
Survivors include his wife, Nancy; daughter Mindi (Brett) Lundberg; son Anthony (Heather) Garcia; and daughter Marlina (Blake) Beckmann; grandchildren Alexis and Garrett Lundberg; Caitlin, Aiden, and Alyssa Garcia; and Ezra Beckmann; sisters Virginia (Benito) Vigil and June (John) Abeyta, and brother Geno Garcia, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Tony was preceded in death by his parents, sister Violet Garcia, brother Anthony Fred Garcia, and sister-in-law Jerri Garcia.
Friends and family are invited to a celebration of Tony’s life on Saturday, September 4th, at the Garfield Park Shelter House from 3:00-7:00 pm, 1600 NE Quincy St. Topeka, KS 66608.
