Dr. Hector Perez Garcia was born in Mexico to Jose and Faustina Garcia on January 17, 1914. Soon after, his family fled the violence of the Mexican Revolution and settled in Texas. There, Dr. Garcia formed connections that would last a lifetime. He established a medical practice in Corpus Christi, Texas. Although his career would take him across the country and even to the White House, he remained deeply committed to his family and his community.
