Angel Garcia - Law Enforcement - Texas

Patrolman Angel Garcia, age 27, died in the line of duty on December 16, 2012, in El Paso, Texas.

Angel was a member of the El Paso Police Department. He had 9 months of service. 

Michael, Archangel, Patron
Saint of the Police, pray
for Angel Garcia
Officer Garcia had stopped to clear a ladder that was lying on the roadway. He had stopped his vehicle in the travel lane, with his emergency equipment activated, to block traffic as he removed the ladder at approximately 7:15 a.m. Another vehicle swerved to avoid striking his patrol car but struck another car, causing a chain reaction crash. Patrolman Garcia was struck by one of the vehicles in the crash.

He was transported to Del Sol Medical Center where he succumbed to his wounds.

Patrolman Garcia was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran. He had graduated from the police academy in March of 2012. 

Angel is survived by many loving friends and relatives. 

Thank you for serving, Angel.

Pray for all who die in the line of duty. Amen. 

Let us pray that Angel Garcia is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
