Alfonso Suarez-Garcia

March 28, 1949 - December 4, 2023

Alfonso Suarez-García, 74, passed away in the presence of his family on December 4, 2023, after a valiant fight with heart and kidney disease. Alfonso was fiercely loyal, delightfully witty and kind to all. His life was built solidly upon his Catholic faith and love for the Lord.

Alfonso was born the third of ten children in Villa Victoria in the state of México on a Monday, March 28, 1949. Named for his father, Alfonso was baptized shortly thereafter in Parroquia de San Miguel Tacubaya church in México City and later confirmed in Parroquia de la Merced church in Villa Victoria.

On September 22, 1984, Alfonso married Emilia, the love of his life at Iglesia de San Agustín church in México City. The special occasion was marked by Alfonso’s determination to carry his new bride into the wedding reception, however challenged by a difference in their height. He prevailed and the marriage was marked by many other great successes and an even greater love. Oscar, their son, was born October 10, 1985, making the family complete.

Setting course for the ultimate adventure, Alfonso, Emilia and Oscar moved to South Lake Tahoe, Nevada, in 1997. In 2022, the couple moved to Minden, Nevada, where Alfonso spent the remainder of his days. Throughout his life, Alfonso worked as a butcher, maintenance engineer and in a housekeeping business that he operated with his wife.

Alfonso is predeceased by his parents, Alfonso and Maria, brothers Raul, Jaime, Cesar, sisters Maria, Leticia, and 9 aunts and uncles. He is survived by his loving wife, Emilia, son Oscar, siblings (Teresa), (Lorenzo), (Alicia), (Alfredo), Alma (Ramon), Blanca (Ruben), Jorge (Silvia), Norma (Angel), and 19 nieces and nephews.

Alfonso loved his family, soccer, the adventure of travel and the friendship of his pets. He never feared new opportunities and did all with honesty and integrity. Alfonso was a man of strong values, had a kind smile and was liked by everyone. Alfonso was a model of Christ in our lives, in whose presence we are certain he rests today. In sorrow, we pray for the repose of the soul of our dearly missed Alfonso.
