Kevin Garza’s Mother Speaks

“He was full of love, full of joy and full of caring, he always thought of ways we could give back to the community,” Moya said.

It was only a few short weeks ago that Kevin Garza, 11 years old, was hit by a vehicle on his way to school and passed away with his family by his side, now his family is doing all they can to keep his memory alive. His mother, Darlene Moya, says the support she has seen from the community comes from the love and support Kevin showed his family.

“People knocking on my door asking me is there any way we can help you even with prayer, call me if you need someone to talk to or a shoulder to cry on and let us know if you need anything, I feel like that’s Kevin because he always told us he was going to take care of us,” Moya said.

Kevin’s family is raising money to help give Kevin a gravestone and to raise the reward to help find who did this to Kevin. Darlene says it was always Kevin’s priority to provide as he saw himself as the man of the house.

“He has a journal and I was looking through it one day and he has prices of what he was going to charge to cut people’s yards,” Moya said.

Kevin had many goals for his future, from being a police officer to opening his own restaurant, but what he wanted most was to see his family with no worries.

“That’s all he talked about was this is what I’m going to do to care of you mom because I don’t want y’all to struggle any more I’m going to take care of y’all,” Moya said.
