GARZA, Leandro (Lee) ''' age 75, of Goodrich, MI, reached the end of his life's journey on this earth on Saturday, March 28, 2015. Leandro was born September 28, 1939 in Santa Rosa, TX to the late Mateo and Maria deJesusa Garza. He had one priority in life, family. Lee provided love and companionship to the love of his life, Sandy, for 50 years, and she will be lost without him. He said in his own words "my heart swells with pride and it takes my breath away when I think of my sons, Lee (Kathy) and Matt (Emily)." Each of his sons gave him two grandsons; Adam, Jason, Henry, and Andrew. He adored them. Lee dearly loved his family. Lee leaves behind his sisters; Andrea (Felipe), Adela (Nick), Phyllis (Len), brother; Luis (Gloria), and special brother-in-law and St. Joe fishing buddy; Bob Lawrence, Margaret's husband, sister-in-law; Susie McCree, brothers-in-law; Darrell Tufts and Marshall Weidenhammer, many beloved nieces and nephews, several good friends with whom he golfed and bowled, and special friends and travel buddies Bob and Sandy Stevens. Preceding him in death were his parents, Mateo and Maria deJesusa Garza; sisters, Lucy (Gilbert), Irene (Bob), Alice, and Margaret (who passed away on the first day of spring, just a few days ago). A very special thank you to our good neighbors/friends Ray, Deb, Karie, and Paul for all the kindness and comfort they provided. Thank you also to Heartland Hospice, especially Melissa and Chris, for their kindness and care. Lee requested cremation. He wanted no formal service, but he directed a request to each person wishing to honor him - give your loved ones a big hug, and tell them that you love them. And so we say goodbye to a kind and gentle man. Those desiring may make contributions to a charity of one's choice. Online condolences may be shared with the family at www.hillfh.com.
