Uziyah Garica, a loving, outgoing, and energetic child, dies at 10

In memory of:

Uziyah Sergio Garcia

Born: Aug 19, 2011, San Angelo, TX
Died: May 24, 2022, Uvalde, TX
Age: 10

Uziyah last visited his grandfather Manny Renfro in San Angelo during spring break. They threw a football together, and Renfro was teaching him pass patterns.

“Such a fast little boy and he could catch a ball so good,” Renfro told the Associated Press. “There were certain plays that I would call that he would remember and he would do it exactly like we practiced.”

Uziyah was “the sweetest little boy that I’ve ever known,” Renfro said.

--From the Texas Tribune

He was competitive, but kind and fair. He loved running, jumping on trampolines, swimming, football, gorilla tag, and vacationing with his Aunt Grace and Uncle JR and the Molina family.  

We will forever miss Uzi, but most of all his contagious laugh, his shaggy hair, and silly jokes. We will miss saying, "I love you and Jesus loves you", especially his reply, “…and Jesus loves you too!”
