Obituary

Former Doña Ana County Sheriff and Retired Sergeant, Alfredo H. Garcia, 89, passed away September 30, 2019, surrounded by his loving family.

Alfredo was born to the late Guadalupe Garcia and Martha Hidalgo Garcia, in Las Cruces, NM on October 21, 1929. He attended Las Cruces Union High School, and later enlisted in the United States Army. After being honorably discharged, he was hired by the Doña Ana County Sheriff’s Office as a dispatcher, then promoted to field deputy, and was elected as the youngest Sheriff of Doña Ana County.

In 1963, after his term ended as sheriff, he was hired on as a detective by the Las Cruces Police Department’s, Chief Ben Silva. Later, he was promoted to sergeant and was in charge of the Criminal Investigation Division until his retirement in 1984. He returned to the Doña Ana County Sheriff's Office for four years on part-time basis. Alfredo was proud of his 39 years of total service in Law Enforcement.

Alfredo married Otilia Eres Garcia and blessed with a loving family. He was an avid camper, fisherman, and hunter. Alfredo was an educator at heart in the field of criminal investigations and developed his own forensic tools. He was kind and soft-spoken, and always had time to answer a question or solve a problem, no matter how small.

Alfredo enjoyed going to McDonald’s during his pre- and post-retirement time to enjoy coffee with friends, and when he no longer could drive, his nephew Danny would take him to the monthly retiree meetings. Alfredo was looking forward to attending this year’s Las Cruces Police Department Reunion, and was going to be presented with an award for the Oldest Retired Las Cruces Police Department Detective for a second time.

Alfredo is survived by his three children, David A. Garcia (Jan), Michael E. Garcia, and Martha Enriquez. His two granddaughter’s Vanessa Stevenson (Aramis) and Theresa Enriquez (Roderick Watkins). His great-grandsons, Bennett and Jackson Stevenson, and great granddaughter Zoey Watkins. His nephew Danny Garcia (Lupe), his great grand-nephew David Borunda and great grand-niece McKayla Borunda, who lovingly called him Big Grandpa. His sister Genevieve Barrio, his brothers Daniel Garcia (Mary Helen), Raymond Garcia (Evelyn,). His brothers-in-law, Luis R. Eres (Romelia), Antonio A. Eres (Socorro), and sister-in-law, Ramona Eres Ferralez, and many nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his wife Otilia, grandson Jason, his parents Guadalupe and Martha, stepmother, Carmen A. Garcia, his brother Lupe Garcia Jr., his sister Mary Helen Garcia, brothers-in-law Alfred G. Barrio, and Robert D. Eres. Alfredo will be dearly missed by his family, friends, and fellow law enforcement personnel.

A Rosary is scheduled for Friday, October 11, 2019 at 9:30AM at St. Genevieve’s Catholic Church with the Funeral Liturgy to follow at 10:00AM. Interment will be at St. Joseph Cemetery.

Uncle Alfredo Garcia, I will miss you terribly, you were my coffee partner for years and years. You paved the way for me to follow your footsteps and because of you I had a 40 year career in Law Enforcement. You challenged me to beat your 39 year career, I felt I was on my hands and knees crawling to beat your record, but when I did, your face lit up with pride. It was priceless. I love you very much my TRUE DAD n HERO

Danny Garcia, Lupe Garcia, David Borunda and Mckayla Borunda, will miss Big Grandpa....
