Taft- Armando was born in Taft, Texas on November 6, 1941 to Abdon and Eusebia (Morales) Garza. He was a lifelong resident of Taft, Texas. Armando retired from Corpus Christi Army Depot and his personal business A&A Electric as a Master Electrician. He was a proud United States Marine Corps Veteran. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, great-great grandfather, brother, son and friend who will be missed by all who knew him.
Armando, lovingly known as "Papo," cared about and helped others in times of need. Papo made time for his family and friends and took whatever opportunity he could to teach skills and lifelong lessons. His family was his source of pride and joy.
Papo taught us to think for ourselves, and to take pride in the work we did. Though strict, he always had the best intentions when he emphasized learning by doing. He would often leave tasks for us to complete in hopes that we would always face challenges head on.
