Jesse Shawn Garcia

Hephzibah, GA  – Jesse “Shawn” Garcia, 30, loving son of Liselotte and Manuel Garcia, entered into rest Friday, January 2, 2015 at his residence. A Celebration of Life service will be held in the James Funeral Home Chapel at 3:00PM Saturday, January 10, 2015 with Rev. Daniel Wager officiating.

Born in Augusta, Shawn was a lifelong resident of Richmond and Burke Counties. He graduated with an Associates Degree from Augusta Tech and was a self-employed electrician. Shawn’s favorite pastimes were hunting, fishing and playing video games. He loved kids and his personality was such that children flocked to him.  “Mama’s Baby” and “Daddy’s Heart”, Shawn will be greatly missed.

Shawn is preceded in death by his sister, Mickey Cheatwood. Other survivors include his three siblings, Jessy Hopkins (Mike), Heidi Fourman, and Tammy Sanders (Geoff); and many nieces and nephews.

The family will receive friends at James Funeral Home after the services Saturday afternoon, January 10, 2015.

I’m Free

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free.
I’m following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call;
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way;
I found that place at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss;
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow—
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I savored much—
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seems all too brief;
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me.
God wanted me now—He set me free.
