Michael Anthony Almazan (Garcia)  
65, of Pontiac, Michigan, passed away on January 10th, 2020 peacefully at his home in Waterford, Michigan. Michael was born in Pontiac, Michigan on June 24th, 1954. Proud father to son Dr. Roman Michael Garcia and his wife Dr. Francesca Marisa Boulos. Grandfather to Amani Boulos Almazan and Ayla Boulos. He is preceded in death by his parents Enrique (Henry) and Hortensia (Pinky) Garcia, brother David Garcia, and sister Victoria Garcia. He is survived by his brother Henry (Rick) Garcia and his wife Jeanine, brother Robert Garcia and his wife Annette, former spouse Angelina Garcia, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, [great] nieces, [great] nephews, extended family and friends. Michael graduated from Pontiac Northern High School in 1972 and furthered his passion for knowledge throughout his adult life with college courses and self study. He was a talented wood model maker for General Motors (GM) United Automobile Workers (UAW) union for 28 years. His enthusiasm of wood working extended as a hobby in which he created many beautiful wood keepsakes for the ones he loved. Michael enjoyed attending family events and being surrounded by the people he cared about. He was always the first to extend a helping hand with home projects, tell you how to cook “real” Mexican food, chat about life’s lessons, and help anyone in need. When the weather was warm, he would take the top off of his Mercedes Benz convertible and drive around town. It was always typical for him to make surprise visits to family and friends. His absolute greatest joy in life was spending time with his son and grandchildren. Michael’s wit, talent, compassion, enthusiasm, and friendship will be missed by all who knew him. The family would like to extend our sincere appreciation to Malika Mason and Anna Marie Cantu for providing personal comfort and care in Michael’s final months allowing him to stay in his home fulfilling his final wishes.
