David Alexander Garcia, Jr.

Keith & Keith Funeral Home

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our son, David Alexander Garcia, Jr. David Jr. passed away unexpectedly, August 5, 2021.

David Jr. was born on July 27, 2003, at 2:53 p.m. in Yakima, Washington. He was the first child born to David Alexander and Cruz Maria Garcia. From the time David Jr. arrived, he was the apple of his parents’ eye. David was the youngest, and he was loved and doted on by his extended family. When his brother, Evander (Evan) joined the family five years later, David Jr. was overprotective, coddled and loved his baby brother. David Jr. considered his Grandma Guzman a confidante, they had a special bond that even in death can not be broken.

David Jr. played percussion in the school band starting in sixth grade through his senior year. He had a passion for music and loved all genres. During his sophomore year, David began to write lyrics to express himself. David was reserved almost shy at times, but this became a creative outlet. He recorded many original songs, releasing a video on YouTube just a few weeks ago, under his stage name, Masaluna. He was an extremely talented aspiring artist, given enough time he would have pursued a musical career.

David graduated with honors from Wapato High School in 2021 and he had been accepted at Eastern Washington University. He had decided to take a year off before formally starting college. With the real estate market such as it is, David knew he could do very well as a realtor, he had enrolled in classes that are scheduled to start in September.

David Jr. is a sparkle that will continue to shine, he had a charismatic personality, a gorgeous smile, a big, beautiful heart to go with his gorgeous brown eyes and thick curly eyelashes. He was a sneakerhead and a Kanye West superfan. We will forever miss our son, but know that he is now in heaven surrounded by family. He will now be our guardian angel and we look forward to the day that we will reunite.
