Everyone knew Orlando had a huge heart and was always ready to help anyone in need. He loved and enjoyed a nice day by the water fishing, spending time watching movies at home with his family, and family get togethers.
When Orlando became a grandfather his passion and priorities were to be the “World’s Greatest Grandpa”. Orlando was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend. He will be dearly missed by all whom loved and knew him.
Orlando was preceded in death by his parents, Frank C. and Beatriz R. Garcia; brother, Oscar A. Garcia; stepson, Gilbert Longoria Sr.; step-daughter, Penny Longoria; and granddaughter, Jessica Carpio.
Left behind to cherish his memory are his beloved wife of 26 amazing years, Genoveva; daughters, Crystal Carpio and Christina Carpio; step-son, Louis Longoria; sister, Olivia Ovalle; and brothers, Jerry Garcia and Daniel Garcia. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Zackary Velasquez, Austin, Justin, and Ismael Nicholas Carpio; whom he loved and adored, and each lit up his world the day they were born.
