Obituary

Ernest Garcia Sr., 70 of Houston Texas, unexpectedly passed away on December 11, 2022. He was born to parents Juan Torres Garcia and Frances Molano Garcia Espinoza, June 24, 1952, in Houston, Texas.

He married Margarita, the love of his life, in 1994, who survives him. Ernest is also survived by his son Ernest Garcia Jr and daughter Victoria Garcia and fiancé Gabriela Ramirez and daughter Valerie Garza and Husband Bo Garza and grandchildren Brianna and Lil Bo and Daughter Susanna Garcia and grandchildren Daniel, Vincent, Lyllianne and Ashlynn and brothers Johnny Garcia, Frank Espinoza, Angelo Bernard Espinoza and sister Carmen Ramos. Ernest was predeceased by parents Juan Torres Garcia and Frances Molano Garcia Espinoza, Angelo Espinoza Sr., sisters Anita Vega, Rosemary Garcia and Angela Dorles Espinoza.

Ernest was known for being an amazing, hardworking provider that loved his family. Often working on side jobs helping others out as he could. If Ernest was not working you would find at home with his kids jamming out, playing spades with a cold bud light in one hand and a cigarette in the other.

Viewing will be held on Friday, December 16, 2022, 3PM – 5PM for immediate family and 5PM – 8PM at the Aria Cremation Service & Funeral Home 1820 N. Belt Line Rd. Irving, TX 75061.

    My sincere condolences goes out to the family. I did not have the pleasure of meeting Ernest but know he was amazing from stories shared by his beautiful daughter Vicky. My prayers are with you all during this time. May you find peace and strength in remembering all the wonderful memories you have.

    Ernest was a family member to us. He had such a nice heart and soul and he was very close to me and my family. There is a saying there is a replacement to everything in this world but I can surely say we will never be able to replace a kind man like Ernest. He was like a brother to me.shelf and my family is still in a shock as it is hard to believe is is no longer with us. We know he is now in a better place and now is the time he can relax and rest and May his soul rest in peace. Hey my brother Ernest you will be missed bro 😢😭☹️. Hope his family will recover with this tragic loss. My condolences to his wife and his kids and grand kids.

    We met Ernest through my friend Margaret Garcia his wife and Ernest and us, we had such a good time when we used to go visit them because, I used to ask my girl Margaret to go out with me, “oh she don’t need to be going out with nobody she need to be at home with her husband” and you would see the biggest smile and look come over his face.
    Like you do, I said but my husband trust me so we would start laughing at what I said.
    But our friend would go out the way to help any of his friends “he if he could” make a way to help you. He would and had a heart of gold he’s truly an angel looking over his family now and I pray that all is well I love you all y’all stay blessed and God makes no mistakes he just called an Angel home early.
    AMEN, OUR PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU ALL in JESUS name 🙏🙏

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
