John J Garza

In memory of John J Garza

My daughter’s father, 35-year-old John J. Garza, was murdered on the Fourth of July in Maywood, Illinois, on 6th and Lake streets. His murderer shot him three times. Horrible death. He was a proud father of five children. They are left with no father due to someone’s selfish act. Johnny was the life of the party. He loved the Sox, ride or die fan. Loved to watch football with his brother and aunt’s family. Johnny is missed very much. His children miss him the most. We love you Johnny.
