Providence, Utah — Joseph S. Garcia, a member of the Greatest Generation, celebrated his 103rd birthday on Friday. Born in Kansas City, Kansas, in 1919 during the Spanish Flu pandemic, he came of age in Fresno, California, during the Great Depression and later went on to serve his country as an infantryman. After the war, he returned to California, settling in the San Francisco Bay Area, to raise a family and live the American Dream.

He moved to Salt Lake City in 1989 after his retirement, in part because of his great love for the outdoors and Utah’s scenic beauty.
