He was known to everyone as “Pete” and was born in the Laureles area to Rafael Garcia and Manuela Gomez, on Jan. 19, 1937. In his young years he attended Los Fresnos School District known as “Little School” during 1948-1949. He attended High School up to 9th grade and played football but did not like playing the sport. However his favorite sport was baseball and softball. His positions were pitcher and first base, one of his favorite pitches was the knuckle. He later met the love of his life, Concepcion Jaramillo whom he married in 1954 and started raising a family. At the time they were living in Laureles where the first 3 were born and moved to Bayview due to his work and where the rest of the family was born and all raised. He was a farmer for years and became a foreman for the Ranch. He continued the baseball sport and teaching his sons and daughters the basics of baseball.
