Jesus "Chuy" Jose Garza, Jr.

Jesus Jose Garza Jr., 90, entered into eternal rest on Tuesday, August 13, 2019, at his residence surrounded by his loving family.

Chuy as he was affectionately known to all, was a native and lifetime resident of Brownsville.  Chuy worked for the Harlingen Irrigation District for 45 years retiring as a Supervisor/Foreman.

Chuy was devoted to his family. He was always looking after everybody and always willing to lend a helping hand to all. Chuy was the family’s “King of Kings” because he had a golden heart. Chuy loved to tell jokes. In his spare time, Chuy loved to go deer hunting and was also a folk healer.

Chuy was deeply loved and will be profoundly missed not only by his family and friends but by all those fortunate to have known him.

Chuy is preceded in death by his wife, Lydia Pedraza Garza; two sons: Pedro Francisco and Jesus J. Garza III; his parents, Andrea and Jesus Jose Garza; 4 sisters: Blasita G. Saldivar, Elvia G. Correa, Concepcion G. Bell, and Aurora G. Sheppa; and 5 brothers: Apolinar, Rolando, Pedro, Jorge, and Rodolfo Garza.

Chuy’s caring and loving manner and contagious humor will be missed by his 3 cherished daughters: Nelda and her husband Oscar Garcia, Patricia and her husband Ruben Hinojosa, and Olivia and her husband Saul Martinez; 14 grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren; and 1 great-great-grandson. Chuy will also be missed by his 3 sisters: Olivia G. Saldivar, Lydia and her husband Abel Benavides, and Herminia G. Muguerza along with numerous nieces, nephews, and other extended family members.
