Sgt. JL Garcia was a very funny person. He really loved to impersonate Sheriff Buford T. Justice, and did a very good impression; however he was a great friend, co-worker, supervisor and a great family man. He was a big guy with a happy soul, and he lit up the room everytime he entered it. Memories of Jorge during breakfast, lunch, dinner meetings always bring smiles to my face. The conversations with Jorge always began with how each other was doing and what was new in our lives, then the family, then the plans for the weekend with the family, and of course... Retirement. Retirement was always a stone throw away in our minds, but galaxies away in reality. I truly miss Jorge and his conversations. Such an intelligent individual who always had the Officers concerns in his mind. He always wanted to make things better for the officers.
