HALTOM CITY — Richard Villa Garcia got a kick out of making people laugh, he loved to
help kids find their way, and he was devoted to improving relationships between fellow
Hispanics and others in the community, his friends said Tuesday.
“He had a different perspective in respect to the Hispanic community, and we needed that
perspective,” said Haltom City Mayor Richard Hutchison.
Only a few months into his second term as a Haltom City council member, Mr. Garcia died
Monday at a Fort Worth hospital of complications of diabetes. He was 67.
His re-election in May despite obviously failing health during the campaign spoke volumes
about the high regard in which his constituents held him, Hutchison said.
“He served with a tremendous amount of integrity and provided a great amount of wisdom
to the council,” he said.
Born March 12, 1946, in San Angelo to Crecensio Hogeda Sr. and Margarita Garcia, Mr.
Garcia graduated from San Angelo Central High School and Angelo State University. His
only surviving family is a half-brother, friend Vicki Shad said.
