Ernest (Ernie) Lee Garcia
Ernie passed away, October 25, 2011 at home after a brave battle with cancer; he will be truly missed by all who knew him. Ernie was born on Jan. 19, 1949 in Salt lake City, Utah to Catarino Preston and Lucille Elizabeth Garcia. He was married to Laura Lee Kone for 43 years, whom he loved very much.
Ernie worked for the City as a Parking Enforcement Officer for over 22 years and was also an Iron Worker and a proud Union man for many years prior. When Ernie wasn't working he enjoyed fishing and camping with his family and friends; being outdoors is where he truly felt at peace. In addition to his many hobbies he also enjoyed music; "The Beatles" were his favorite.
Ernie lives on in life through his loving wife Laura Lee Garcia and his children: Christopher Lee Garcia, Michelle (Marcus) Lee Cisneros, Justin Lee Garcia and his siblings: Susanna Florez, Donald Garcia and Mary Lawton. He was preceded in death by his mother and father as well as his younger brother Jimmy Garcia.
