John Garcia was born the son of a poor Hispanic laborer family. His 8 brothers and 5 sisters lived with their mother and father in a small 2-bedroom, 1 bath tiny home. John’s first battle was overcoming a language barrier and lack of quality education. He began life laboring under the blazing Texas sun, 12 hours a day, for 40 cents an hour. He was told he’d never amount to anything more than a sack boy in the local grocery store. John had other "Visions.“
