He was a loving husband, father, cherished son of Arcadio Garza Sr. and Selia (Olivares) Garza and the youngest among his five siblings. A graduate of Ferris High School, Class of 1990, Mark embarked on a diverse career, initially as a dragline operator before transitioning into welding. For many years, he dedicated his skills and hard work to Hanson, now Forterra Pipe. Not only a dedicated professional, Mark served as the Fire Captain for the Bristol, Texas Volunteer Fire Department, exemplifying his commitment to community safety for a decade. Mark found joy in the exhilaration of riding his motorcycle and the art of competitive grilling. Known for his tough exterior, he revealed a caring and gentle nature to those fortunate enough to know him well. Mark was a true friend without hesitation, always willing to lend a helping hand or give the shirt off his back. In the hearts of those who knew him, Mark Garza will be remembered as a serious individual until comfort allowed his warm and compassionate side to shine through. His legacy is one of strength, kindness, and unwavering friendship. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
