Alfonso L Garcia Castro

April 28, 1933 — June 29, 2020

Alfonso "Fonso" Garcia Castro, age 87, of Levittown, PA, passed away suddenly but peacefully in his dreams on June 29th, 2020.

Alfonso was born on April 28th, 1933 to mother Patria Castro and father Jeronimo Garcia in Utuado, Puerto Rico. From 1952 to 1976, he served in the United States Army, doing tours in France, Panama, Germany, Greenland, and fought in the Vietnam War. Shortly after returning from the Vietnam War, Alfonso, his wife, and four daughters put down roots in their home in Levittown, PA.

Alfonso was known for his love of History, Gardening, and Current Events. A summer was never complete without the ripest tomatoes from his garden and there was never a holiday without an encore of “My Way” by Frank Sinatra.

Alfonso was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather. He is survived by his loving wife, Olga Velez de Garcia, 4 daughters: Olga and husband Michael, Aida and husband Luis, Dori and husband Gus, and Melba and partner Kevin; grandchildren Christina and husband Gerard, Maria and husband Luis, Kelly Ann and partner Nick, and great grandchildren Marissa, and Percio.
