Moisés G. Garza peacefully passed from this life on Thursday, April 6, 2022 at 89 years of age.  He was born to the late Moisés Castillo Garza and Josefina Guajardo Garza on July 6, 1932 in San Benito, Texas.

Moisés retired from the United States Department of Agriculture after 32 years of dedicated service.
