Frank Garza Jr.
Frank (Francisco) Garza Jr. (75) of Frisco, Texas became an angel on January 13, 2024. He was born in Robstown, Texas on April 25, 1948 to Frank (Sr.) and Ernestina Garza. Frank was an amazing man who touched so many lives. Someone recently described him as “a tough nut to crack, but once you do, he’s hilarious.” He was a man of few words, but he had an enormous giving heart. His pride and joy were his family. He took great care of those he loved. He took his role as a husband and father to heart and was always there for you even when you didn’t realize you needed him. He just knew. He was respected and loved by those that knew him, and he instilled so much wisdom, and brought so much joy to those around him. He made sure you were always prepared and supported and expressed his love in his own special ways. Frank spent 35 years in the telecommunication management industry with Southwestern Bell, AT&T, and Lucent Technologies, exploring new cities and making several lifelong friendships along the way. After retiring, he spent 12 years in landscape management. He enjoyed fishing, golfing, watching sports, and hunting. He was also known to start some of the best bonfires around. He enjoyed spending time out in nature and with his friends and family. Frank was preceded in death by his parents, sister, Myra Ramirez, and son, Frank Garza III. He is survived by the love of his life, Gloria Garza; daughter, Annette Dorrell; son-in-law, Don Dorrell; son, Scott Garza; daughter-in-law, Maren Garza; son, Bryan Garza; daughter- in-law, Leigh Garza; sister, Gloria Hernandez; brothers, Raul and Rudy Garza, and his six grandchildren: Adam Garza, Austin Dorrell, Lauren Garza, Madalyn Garza, Eli Garza and Gwen Garza. He is now our guardian angel, watching over us while he lives on in our hearts. We will honor his legacy in the stories we share around our tables and our fires, the quiet kindnesses we can bestow when no one is watching, and by taking care of one another the way he took care of us. The Garzas would love for you to share a story, pictures. or a memory you have of Frank. Please feel free to send them to his son Bryan at [email protected]. The family is hosting a Celebration of Life reception in his honor on Saturday, February 10th at 2:00 pm. Lake Kiowa Lodge – Southwest Room 905 Kiowa Dr. West Lake Kiowa, TX 76240 The Family is very grateful for the prayers, love and support they have received. The Dash I read of a man who stood to speak at the funeral of a friend. He referred to the dates on the tombstone from the beginning to the end. He spoke of the memories they shared, of the laughter and the fun. He talked about the things they did until his work on earth was done. He looked at the people who came to mourn. He smiled and said, “I’m fine.” But deep inside, he knew he was lying. He’d miss his friend all his life. When you look at the dates on the tombstone, you realize that there’s a dash in between. That dash represents all the time that they spent alive on earth. And now only those who loved them know what that little line is worth. For it matters not, how much we own, the cars, the house, the cash. What matters is how we live and love, and how we spend our dash. Linda Ellis
