Pedro Garcia the third

October 15, 1992 — May 2, 2020

Pedro Garcia the third was born on October 15, 1992 in Orange, New Jersey. Pedro graduated from Cozad High School in 2011. He continued his education and wrestling career at Colby CC where he graduated with his associates degree. He then went on to wrestle and continue his education at Hastings College, later transferring to the University of Nebraska at Kearney to be closer to his family. Pedro was a para-educator and an assistant wrestling coach at Cozad Community Schools. He was a two-time state qualifier, fifth-place state medalist and a role model to many people because of his wrestling career. Pedro’s passion for wrestling was unmatched. So much so he would wake up at 5am daily just to get an extra workout and stayed home from a few of our family vacations during the season. Later he moved on to coaching and mentoring in the sport he loved. Pedro was dedicated in not just wrestling but everything he did.

Pedro was a great brother to his four siblings, he always put his family first regardless of the situation we were in and taught us what life was really about. Something Pedro always told us that we will keep with us forever was, “Day by Day we all become stronger and stronger, we get pushed to our limit, so we can reach our goals and make our dreams reality”. He was best known for his cheesy smile and his great advice to anyone who knew him. He was always able to switch a negative situation into a positive situation. Pedro always saw negativity as a way of life and with every negative situation there is always a positive one. Pedro was and forever will be our biggest inspiration and we will forever keep him in our hearts.

Pedro Garcia the third unexpectedly passed away on May 2, 2020 at the age of 27. Pedro was a loving son, brother, cousin, grandson, nephew, uncle, and friend to all. Pedro left behind his parents, Pedro and Silvia Garcia, his siblings Julio, Janice, Jamie, and Pierro Garcia. He also left behind his nephew Remmy, who he loved dearly, as well as his uncles, aunts, cousins, and grandma who he loved just as much. Pedro will be the light to all of our lives and that light will never stop shining because regardless of where he is he will always be looking out for us all, just like he always has.
