He is survived by seven daughters, 14 grandkids and 22 great-grandchildren.


Thanks to his short height, only 1.50 m, he avoided being enlisted into the 1936 Spanish Civil War and, instead, established a flourishing shoemaker business.

Garci worked as a shoemaker and made boots for the army, becoming a famous artisan in the area.

When not making shoes, he played football and co-founded a local team.

To honour his 110th birthday, his teammates had paid homage to Garci and celebrated him as the club's oldest member.
