He enlisted in the U.S. Army during World War II and was among those who hit the beaches of Normandy on D-Day in June of 1944.

He was both an attorney and a college and law school professor.
He taught at CSU, Chico in the late 1960s and early 1970s. He was Chair of the Department of Social Welfare and Corrections, and also Director of the Upward Bound program. At the time of his retirement he was a Deputy County Counsel in Sacramento County.
As his "retirement project" he designed and built a home on the west side of Lake Tahoe - the place he loved best on earth.
He is survived by his five children, Sherryl Garcia Braak (and beloved son-in-law Richard), Franklin M. Garcia, Jr. (known as "Rocky," and wife Sheri), Victoria Norman, Michelle Garcia, and Michael Garcia. He was very proud of his grandchildren, Franklin M.
