    My condolences to A.J.’s entire family. He worked for me at CIM, many years ago when he first started his career. He will be missed dearly.

    The Lord took a SERT Brother home. AJ always said, “Once a Warrior always a Warrior!” When I was a young CO, he always had a smile and made time for you. He helped everybody. May he rest in peace.

    My condolences to AJ Garcia’s family. He was a wonderful man. I had the pleasure of working with him and for him while he was a P.A. at CRC. Mr. AJ always made our day interesting and fun, full of stories about his life and experience with his career at CDCR. I truly admire him and I am very sad to hear of his passing. I know his soul is at rest in the Lord Jesus Christ. Your family will remain in my prayers. Never forget to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.
