Obituary

Tito “Butter” Garcia Jr., 90, passed away at his residence on April 27, 2019 in Evans, Colorado. He was born to Tito Sr. and Santitos (Lopez) Garcia on July 31, 1928 in Galeton, Colorado.

Butter proudly served in the US Air Force in Germany and from 1948-1949 he served as a radio operator during the Berlin Air Lift. He, along with his daughter Annette and son-in-law Rick, were privileged to join his military family on an Honor Flight to Washington DC in 2018.

Butter was the definition of civil servant, he loved helping people. He worked in many areas in the Human Services department in Weld County for many years. He loved being involved and having his hands in everything that was going on in the county; so much so, that he made sure that everyone had the chance to vote, even if it meant, having to drive them into the voting polls. He was a faithful member of Our Lady of Peace Church, since a child, and the Knights of Columbus for many years. Butter’s most cherished memories are of coaching the Greeley Grays baseball team in the 1960’s. The team was composed of many family members but even those players who did not share blood relations quickly became members of his family.

Butter is survived by his children, Annette (Rick) Onorato, Jack Garcia, Rochelle (Chris) Gomez; grandchildren, Andrea Garcia, Nicole (Manuel) Heredia, Tyler (Miranda) Onorato, Christopher (Kylie) Gomez, Dominic Gomez and Liliana Gomez; five great grandchildren; siblings, Dorothy (William) Rodman, Steve Garcia, Rita (Char) Rucobo, Vel Garcia-Romero (Joe) and brother-in-law, Manuel Rojas. He had numerous loving nieces, nephews, and cousins as well as his beloved caregiver, Amanda Lujan.

Butter was preceded in death by his wife, Petra Martinez; his parents; siblings, Josey Garcia and Sophia Rojas.

Life Celebration Visitation will be held from 6-8 pm, with Rosary starting at 7 pm, Wednesday, May 1, 2019 at Adamson Life Celebration Home, 2000 47th avenue in Greeley. Christian Mass will be held at 10 am, Thursday, May 2, 2019, at Our Lady of Peace Church, 1311 3rd Street in Greeley.

Butter so glad I called you at Christmas. It was my intention to take my Mom and Elma up to see you once the weather warmed up, but God called you home instead. I dreamt of you and Pat together, at last, 15 years she has been waiting for you. Say hi to my dad for me. All my love, your goddaughter. Kim

"Butter" will always be a special person to me as he would come to our office to see "Crockett" and was so full of energy and humor. He will be sadly missed by so many people for his kind heart and passion for the Greeley Grays. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
