He was born on August 5th, 1936 to Luis Garcia Hernandez and Carmen Vargas Quinonez in Guanica, Puerto Rico, joining a large family of 14 siblings. He lived there until 1949, where at the age of 12 he decided to chase the American dream and come to the mainland. Throughout his early life he traveled all over the U.S. where he found a great love for music, sports and acquired many skills along the way. He met his wife of more than 51 years, Onelia, while playing with his salsa band in New York and they were married on April 15, 1967. They lived In Brooklyn and Queens during their early years together before settling in Stamford, CT in 1982 with their 7 loving children. He was a well-known fixture in his neighborhood and was greatly respected and loved. Oswaldo was an enthusiastic musician and chef, and he used those skills long after he retired to bring joy to everyone around him. He welcomed the whole neighborhood to his home and opened his door to all with warmth, kindess and sharing. He will be sorely missed but never forgotten. He is survived by his wife, 11 children, more than 30 grandchildren and more than 20 great grandchildren.
