Christino (Tino) Garza Jr. was born and raised in Gary, IN. Born a special needs child. Tino spent his days by his mother Leonora’s side. As he got older, he developed an interest in arts and craft. He skillfully built bird houses out of popsicles sticks, completed color by number portraits, and loved completing puzzles. Later in life he moved into a group home where he had two wonderful roommates and attended The Tender Love Day Program. He participated in Bowling Special Olympics and found a new interest in making jewelry. Tino’s family enjoyed having him over every holiday. He loved to joke around. Especially to his brothers and brother-in- laws about being short and bald, although he was the shortest and bald himself. He will be missed, and his memory will be treasured always.
